Although it is a small island about the size of Maryland and Delaware combined, Taiwan has developed into one of the world's largest economic and trading entities. Over the past decade, Taiwan has transformed itself from a light industry-manufacturing base to a global center for the production of high technology products. In 2017 U.S. exports of consumer-oriented agricultural products grew 6% at over US$1.5 billion, making it the 7th largest export market for the aggregate. Taiwan is the 11th largest U.S. market for processed foods as well, totaling US$629.7 million in 2017, down 1%. 

U.S. exports of food products have some advantages in the Taiwanese food market. They include:

  • U.S. food products enjoy an excellent reputation among consumers
  • The growing modern retail industry is looking for new imported food products
  • The majority of consumers have become more health conscious and tend to be less concerned about costs when shopping.
  • The popularity of American holidays and culture/lifestyle lead to promotional events organized around these themes by restaurants and hotels throughout the year
  • There is a wide variety of U.S. food products available to consumers
  • Consumers are brand-conscious, and America is a leader in food brands that set trends
  • Increasing growth of fast food chains and casual dining restaurants is a key to industry growth
