Yesterday, the Polish Office in Taipei held its first-ever “Polish Apple Night”, intent on promoting the central European country’s apples in Taiwan. The event took place at Shangri La’s Far Eastern Plaza Hotel and was organized in partnership with the Polish Investment and Trade Agency (PAIH) and the National Support Centre for Agriculture (KOWR).
Acting Head of the Polish Office in Taipei Bartosz Rys said: “We believe that Polish apples will find loyal and satisfied buyers among Taiwanese people. The main reason for that is a very strong position of Poland among the world’s top apple producers and exporters.”
He added: “The Polish agricultural sector is capable of meeting the most various demands and preferences. Poland is currently producing and exporting more than 60 kinds of apples, which have different colors, sizes, tastes, and shapes and can be collected during different seasons of the year.” He added that, “Polish apples are not only sold as a raw product for individual consumption but are also available as a processed product used as an ingredient for other food products.”
According to taiwannews.com.tw, Taiwan’s authorities allowed the import of Polish apples in November 2019. As of today, 15 Polish companies have been approved to export apples to the East Asian Nation.
