Taiwan wheat deal

Boise--On Tuesday, September 24th, representatives from the Taiwan Goodwill Mission met with Idaho Governor Brad Little, the Idaho Wheat Commission, the Idaho Department of Agriculture and the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in Seattle.

The purpose of the visit was the signing of a letter of intent for Taiwan flour millers to purchase Idaho wheat.

Governor Little, Kuo-Shu Fan (Director General of the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office), Ned Moon (Chairman of the Idaho Wheat Commission) and Tony Yi-Cheun Shu (Executive Director of the Taiwan Flour Mills Association) will provide remarks.

Blaine Jacobson of the Idaho Wheat Commission read the letter of intent just before the signing. One Taiwan official said that wheat has now surpassed the countries per capita consumption of rice.
