Nov 22, 2018 General Comments Off on Taiwan fruit, vegetables prove big hit in Palau
Taipei, Nov. 22 (CNA) The first shipment of fruit and vegetables sent by Taiwan to Palau almost completely sold out just three hours after the produce went on sale at a local supermarket, according to a statement from the Embassy of the Republic of China (Taiwan) in Palau Thursday.
This was the first time in nearly 20 years that Taiwan's fruit and vegetables have been sold in the Pacific island nation, the statement indicated.
On its Facebook page, the embassy said the freshness and quality of the fruit and vegetables quickly attracted customers.
The shipment, consisting of guava, persimmon, bamboo shoots, grapes and dragon fruit, arrived in the country on Nov. 20, passed through customs, and was delivered to local supermarket Surangel on the same day.
The items were almost completely sold out within three hours of being placed on shelves at Surangel, and within 24 hours of arriving in the country, the embassy said.
The importer Surangel and Sons Co., said the rush of customers was totally unprecedented, so much that the company plans to bring in another shipment from Taiwan soon.
