FOOD FIGHT? With Taipei’s new regulations on Japanese food imports set to go into effect tomorrow, questions regarding the enforcement of such rules remain unanswered


Taiwan suspends entire food import from Japan as of May 15, 2015.

Taiwan has banned food import from 5 prefectures since the accident in 2011.(Fukushima, Ibaraki, Tochigi, Gunma, Chiba)

Both countries could not reach an agreement on Taiwan’s tightened restriction over Japanese imported food –
1, origin of product to be labeled on all imported food products
2. radiation test result to be attached to 800 food products in 3 categories (baby foods, seafood, tea) from specified area (like Tokyo or Shizuoka) due to the “HIGH RISK” of contamination – and Taiwan decided to stop importing any food from Japan.
