Singapore, Aug. 16 (CNA) The Taiwan Food Fair held by the Sheng Siong Supermarket chain in Singapore kicked off for a fifth year in the city state on Thursday, displaying many different kinds of fruit and vegetables from Taiwan. The 15-day fair, a collaboration between the Changhua County government and Sheng Siong Supermarket, was declared open by Sheng Siong Group CEO Lim Hock-chee, Changhua County Secretary-General Lai Chen-kou, and Taiwan's deputy representative in Singapore Warren Wang.

In an expansion of the fair's reach this year, Sheng Siong will offer processed foods from Taiwan at its 33 outlets in the city state for the first time. The items on sale will include various kinds of snacks and crackers, frozen lobster salad, nougat, and frozen edamame, all of which demonstrate Taiwan's well-developed agricultural technology and food processing capabilities, Lim said. The Changhua County government also invited the 2014 Changhua Grape Princesses to promote its agricultural products in Singapore, and they successfully drew several shoppers to the Taiwan food display area. Lai said exports of Taiwanese vegetables and fruit to Singapore, Japan, Malaysia, Australia and China are increasing every year, and he hoped Singapore residents will continue to enjoy Taiwanese food products.
