Taiwan imposes ban on frozen custard apples from China

Yesterday, Taiwan announced a ban on the importation of frozen custard apples from China, with immediate effect. According to a government statement, the ban was "non-retaliatory," in the wake of China's prohibition last year of the fresh fruit from Taiwan.

The decision to halt imports of Chinese frozen custard apples is aimed at easing the pressure on local fruit farmers who have been affected by China's import ban, Taiwan's Mainland Affairs Council said.

The nation of Taiwan has long had a ban on the importation of fresh custard apples from China, but not on frozen imports of the fruit, although there have not been any actual imports of the latter from China or any other country in recent years, according to the Cabinet-level Council of Agriculture.
