Taiwanese company to export bananas and pineapples to Japan
Taiwan’s Mitagri Co on Friday signed a letter of intent (LOI) with Japan’s Farmind Corp, with the aim of exporting Taiwanese bananas, pineapples and other agricultural products to Japan.
Mitagri’s chariman Chen Yu-jan signed the LOI with Farmind’s representative in Tokyo, while the Council of Agriculture (COA) Deputy Minister Chen Chi-chung also attended the ceremony as a witness.
Japan exports about 40,000 tonnes of fruit per year, 65 percent of which is exported to Taiwan, Chen said, adding that the two nations could become complementary trade partners given that they produce varied fruits in different seasons.
The two companies agreed to purchase up to US$89.43 million of each other’s produce over five years, COA Department of International Affairs Deputy Director-General Lin Chia-jung said.
Meanwhile, the council on Thursday announced that the nation is to halt the imports of apples from South Africa, as a highly procreative pest, the codling moth, was found in an imported apple.
A total of 1,176 boxes of apples, about 21,462kg, are to be returned to South Africa or destroyed, depending on the exporter’s decision, Feng said.
