Bottles are being opened and dishes shared as tens of thousands of people come to Taipei Nangang Exhibition Hall and Taipei World Trade Center to see what Taiwan’s food industry has to offer, one sample at a time. The thousands of people manning the booths at Asia’s 5-in-1 Food Expo are serving up visitors a taste of Taiwan — and abroad. Some visitors came with more than just curiosity. Fifty-seven buyers from 20 countries arrived looking for partners in Taiwan.
Asia’s Super 5-in-1 Food Expo opened on Wednesday, June 21, to showcase Taiwan’s well-integrated, diverse and highly competitive food industry. At the joint opening ceremony for the Food Expo, First Vice President of Honduras Ricardo Antonio Alvarez Arias highlighted the trade show’s importance in promoting food products from the Central American country such as coffee and other agricultural products. R.O.C. Vice President Chen Chien-jen introduced Alvarez as the first foreign leader to attend the opening ceremony of Food Expo.
