Taiwanese pineapples qualify for Tokyo Olympics

Officials have stated that Taiwan's pineapples, along with mangoes, dragon fruit, and bananas, have met the requirements to be served at the Tokyo Olympics.

On March 11, Chen Chi-chung, head of the Cabinet-level Council of Agriculture (COA) announced on Facebook, "Hey! TGAP PLUS pineapple, mango, and dragon fruit can enter the Tokyo Olympics!" TGAP 2020 PLUS refers to an upgraded version of the Taiwan Good Agricultural Practice (TGAP), designed for pineapples, mangoes, and dragon fruit.

According to Chen, the COA received notice from the Sustainability Department under the Administration Bureau of the Tokyo Organizing Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games that Taiwan's TGAP for the fruits has met its criteria for sustainable agricultural products. This means they can be consumed at this summer's games.
