Pavilion for local produce opens in Shanghai mall


TAIPEI — A pavilion dedicated to the selling of Taiwanese fruits, vegetables, and aqua products in a popular Shanghai shopping mall began operating yesterday, the Council of Agriculture said. Nearly 300 Taiwanese agricultural products were sold yesterday on the ground floor of the Sun Moon Light Central Square, according to Chang Shu-hsien, the director-general of the council’s Department of International Affairs.

The pavilion is being operated by the Tainan-based Uni-President Dream Parks Corp. under the council’s guidance, Chang noted.

As the mall is near the popular tourist attraction of “Tianzifang,” a block of alleyways that retains the old look of Shanghai, it is a good venue to showcase Taiwan’s high-quality fresh produce to as many different people as possible, Chang stated.
