The first shipment of 180 metric tons of Taiwanese cabbage has officially entered the Vietnamese market, according to a recent announcement by the Agriculture and Food Agency.


The peak harvest time for Taiwanese cabbage is during the autumn and winter seasons and it is mainly exported to Japan, though markets have also been developed in Canada, Hong Kong and Singapore in recent years, with Vietnam the latest addition.


Indonesia is Taiwan's next target market, according to the agency.


Liao Chen-yi, the head of an agricultural produce trading company, said that his company mainly sold cabbage to Japan and Hong Kong but spotted new opportunities in Vietnam with its rapid economic development in recent years.


A few weeks ago, Liao’s company shipped 16 metric tons of cabbage to Vietnam on a trial basis, he said, adding that it has since received orders for nearly 10 full containers for the vegetable which is highly popular with ethnic Chinese in the country.


To keep the cabbage fresh, the company uses vacuum cooling technology to improve quality and prolong its shelf life for one month to enhance competitiveness, according to Liao.
