Taiwan Updates COO Labeling for Pork Products

Last month the Taiwan Ministry of Health and Welfare approved updated country of origin (COO) labeling regulations for food products that contain pork and edible parts of the pig. Specifically, packaged products, bulk food and directly supplied food for catering that contain pork and / or any edible pig parts must clearly indicate the country of origin for the raw material in Chinese as well as a production date. The regulation applies to both domestically produced foods and imported foods as well. The regulation supports Taiwan authorities’ plan to provide transparent product information so that consumers can make informed choices. Food operators who fail to comply with the country of origin labeling requirements will be fined a minimum of NT $40,000. The COO requirements have already taken effect.
