Taiwan: Dairy and Products Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   TW2021-0048

Taiwan’s MY 2021 fluid milk consumption is expected to decrease to 521,000 MT due to import delays resulting from the Covid-19 pandemic. MY 2021 domestic production of cow’s milk is estimated flat at 437,000 MT while imports are estimated to fall to 72,000 MT. In April 2021, Taiwan reported the first case of lumpy skin disease (LSD) on the main island of Taiwan and subsequently vaccinated all cattle for LSD. The United States remains the largest exporter of fluid milk to Taiwan. However, New Zealand saw another significant increase in market share this year as it moves toward full duty-free access for dairy products in 2025 under the ANZTEC agreement.
