Six Taiwanese companies in the market for processed agricultural products will visit Helena and Great Falls on a shopping trip. The buyers, representing three grocery store chains and three importers, met with representatives from 12 Montana companies that produce goods such as gourmet candies, wine, organic lentils, and natural body care products. The shoppers are hoping to find new products for gift packs and other retail opportunities to offer their consumers.
"Visits like this are extremely important to our agricultural economy because they give us an opportunity to develop relationships with new foreign trading partners," Agriculture Director Ron de Yong said. "Trends in the Taiwan food industry are products that offer convenience, specialty and function, such as healthy and organic foods. We have Montana companies that can meet those consumer needs."
