In order to strengthen economic and cultural ties between Taiwan and Lithuania, TAITRA invited the Lithuanian Rural Business and Market Development Agency to set up a Lithuania pavilion at the 2021 Taipei International Food Show.
The show ran from December 22 to 25, with the first three days open to commercial enterprises and the last open to the public.
Lithuanian products have been attracting a lot of attention among Taiwanese consumers, with bargains being snapped up left, right and centre.
On December 22 the Taipei International Food Expo opened, with Lithuanian products being featured for the first time. 25 Lithuanian vendors brought some great food products to showcase, attracting the attention of the local Taiwanese media.
Chairman James Huang of host TAITRA made reference to the solidarity the Taiwanese public feel with Lithuania at the opening ceremony, given the support the country has shown Taiwan despite pressure from authoritarian powers. They’ve shown their support in the best way they know how, by supporting Lithuanian food companies.
A traditional Lithuanian dance performances the curtain raiser for the Lithuanian pavilion. Chairman Huang also drew a heart on a chocolate painting, provided by historic chocolate brand Ruta, to symbolize the friendship between the two countries.
