The Council’s office in Taiwan was established on July 1, 1973. Since then USGC/Taiwan’s technical programs have focused on helping livestock and poultry producers and feed millers use US feed grains effectively and manage their operations efficiently. USGC/Taiwan’s trade servicing efforts are focused on helping potential and current customers gain familiarity with U.S. marketing systems, including grain quality and price. In addition, the office enhances relationships and agricultural trade between Taiwan and the United States. USGC/Taiwan’s trade policy programs include providing information on regulation and policy related to biotechnology, establishing Maximum Residue Levels (MRLs) of agricultural chemicals, and setting national standards for mycotoxins in grains and feeds. It also works to develop markets for barley foods and corn-based Poly-lactic Acid (PLA), an environmentally friendly eco-materials.
In order to fulfill its mission of building markets for America's grains, the U.S. Grains Council operates 10 international offices as well as its headquarters in Washington, D.C. Please contact international staff in the Washington office first. Washington staff will know who is available to provide the best and quickest response to your questions.
