Taiwanese consumers are to get their first taste of Polish apples, following the arrival of a trial shipment last week. Head of sales of Polish fruit exporter Galster, Mateusz Wajnert, said: “On Wednesday 9th December, the first trial box with apples from our orchards, containing Gala Royal apples arrived. After the arrival, the produce was checked for flavour and the feedback has been positive. This means the next thing on our list is to send an actual container shipment to Taiwan and find some good cooperation with Taiwanese fruit importers. It’s been a lot of hard work, wading through a series of phytosanitary documents, but we hope this will all be worth it in the end. We would like to slowly start, trying a couple of containers to get to know the expectations of our Taiwanese customer a little better.”
If all goes well, more containers will be sent next season.
