The 2016 edition of Searching and Matching Conference drew a large number of suppliers and buyers as a resounding success (photo courtesy of organizers).

There are many unique functional foods developed in Taiwan. Advanced bio-technologies not only have been applied to develop these functional foods, but also supported by strong scientific evidence. The high quality of functional foods from Taiwan such as Probiotics, Antrodia, Chlorella, Red yeast rice and so on has driven all these mature products to meet the international criteria and be welcomed in international markets.

To global buyers interested in the excellent functional foods from Taiwan, the 2017 Searching and Matching Conference is an ideal venue to visit. The event will offer wonderful networking opportunities to visitors to meet 15~20 suppliers of functional foods of Taiwan and present a variety of high quality products targeted at foreign buyers looking for a greater market of functional foods.
