Taiwan rice gaining popularity in Japan
Taiwan rice gaining popularity in Japan

High-quality rice grown in Taiwan has gained in popularity in Japan, with 180 metric tons of rice cultivated in eastern Taitung county scheduled to be exported to the country later this year, a government official said yesterday. According to a spokesman for the Agriculture and Food Agency under the Cabinet-level Council of Agriculture (COA), some 180 metric tons of Chihshang and Kuanshan rice produced in Taitung will be exported to Japan, with the first half batch of 90 metric tons slated to be shipped Friday.

The two categories of locally grown rice have already passed Japan's food safety quarantine checks, and the shipment to the quality-conscious Japanese market will come after a shipment to Japan of Fulee rice in 2004 from Hualien county, which borders Taitung county, the spokesman noted.

Encouraged by the success of Taiwan rice in Japan, Taiwan farmers are seeking to further explore the Japanese market in a bid to build a quality image for their crops, the spokesman said.

Most Taiwan rice exported to Japan is purchased by restaurants or sold in small packs at retail stores to the general public.
