Taiwan: Retail Foods

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   TW2021-0035

Taiwan’s retail food sector is becoming increasingly competitive and chain operators such as Costco, 7-Eleven, PX Mart, and Carrefour continue to dominate Taiwan’s food retail market. The United States is the leading supplier of many consumer-oriented food and agricultural products including red meats, fresh fruit and vegetables, poultry, packaged foods, and beverages to these and other retail operators in Taiwan. Taiwan is the United States' eighth-largest export market for food and agricultural products, according to U.S. Department of Agriculture data. Due to the COVID-19 global pandemic, including Taiwan’s recent, first significant outbreak, 2021 could be a challenging year for Taiwan’s retail sector.
