Taiwan Education in Taiwan Rebuilds Confidence Following Food Safety Scare

Food safety concerns in Taiwan related to “greening” of potatoes have finally been put to rest, thanks to the combined efforts of Potatoes USA trade education and market access work. On November 2, 2018, Taiwan implemented a new glycoalkaloids standard, which is now being used to assess levels of solanine (greening) in imported potatoes and potato products. The implementation of the standard caps more than a year of work by Potatoes USA, the potato industry and the USDA to address concerns that were impacting the US potato export trade.
