In November, 2016, a dairy powder shipment from the United States was detained at the port of Keelung in northern Taiwan during an inspection for improper labeling.
With the assistance of the AIT Taipei Agricultural Section, the importer was able to produce necessary documentation and obtain the release of the shipment valued at $54,000.
Importers and exporters can reduce the risk of potential shipping delays or rejections by closely following Taiwan labeling regulations. ■
