The USA, New Zealand and Chile,TOP 3 supplier countries

Taiwan has one of the highest per capita fresh fruit consumption rates in the world at 102 kg / person versus 72 kg / person in the world. Local production accounts for about 88% of total fruit demand and Taiwan generally imports non-locally produced fruit.
 
 
 
In 2018, Taiwan imported $ 682 million, 8% lower than the previous year because favorable weather conditions led to good local harvests. In the fruit import market, the United States remains the leading supplier, with $ 222 million (33%), followed by New Zealand with $ 165 million(24%), and Chile with $ 123 million ( 18%). Then, Japan with $ 87 million (12%) and South Korea with $ 22 million (3%).
 
 
 
The United States is the main supplier, especially for apples, peaches, nectarines, grapes, cherries, cranberries, blueberries, oranges, plums and pears.
 
 
 
According to professionals the best growth opportunities for US suppliers are the seasonal fruits for which Taiwan has no or little production, such as cherries, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries and blackberries.
