Taipei, Taiwan (PRNewswire).- The 2nd edition of Aquaculture Taiwan Expo & Forum is organised by UBM Taiwan and Malaysia and supported by the local authority, Council of Agriculture (COA). The 2017’s debut brought a big success and generated US$17 million from the total gross merchandise volume. Featuring innovative, eco-friendly and sustainable technology and purpose, the trade show is positioned as an international B2B trading platform and will take place at Taipei World Trade Center from July 26-28. Targeting at niche-market products, UBM Taiwan and Malaysia are endeavouring to recruit more manufacturers from around the world.


Aquaculture is seen as one of the solutions for the future food production systems to meet global protein demand increasing yearly. Ms. Sabine Liu, General Manager of UBM Taiwan pointed out, “the mass consumption of meat all over the world forces aquatic farmers to expand breeding density. However, it may cause aquatic diseases to explode. We notice that smart farming will be the trend to solve insufficiency of manpower and optimize productivity. The application of information technology will benefit farmers to increase income and save more power cost.”

The showcased smart farming products this year include water testers, big data and intelligent algorithm service, temperature sensor, smart farming solution, environment monitoring and automatic control systems. Taiwan exhibitors, MIC Meter Industrial, Aquas, eKoPro Solutions, GOnDO Electronic, Fu Chen Automatic Control, Clientron Corp. are ready to display the state-of-the-art merchandise and grab the business opportunity to receive orders. UBM Taiwan also promotes the recruitment to Europe, USA, India and Southeast Asian countries to look for advanced smart farming facilities.

The quality and fine taste of seafood products are crucial to market competitiveness. The future prospect will be determined by cold storage and logistic systems. As a result, UBM Taiwan enlists more cold chain and package suppliers from Japan, India, South Korea and mainland China. In addition, due to the rising demands of indoor fish farming in Singapore, culture chambers, flow tanks, oxygen equipment and water cooling systems are also recruited at the trade show. UBM Taiwan tends to provide diverse and plentiful aquaculture technology to response overseas buyers’ enquiries.

The Aquaculture Taiwan Expo & Forum 2018 is held concurrently with Livestock Taiwan Expo & Forum and Asia Agri-Tech Expo & Forum. At present, the number of exhibitors has exceeded 2017’s debut and more than 2,000 sqm has been taken. UBM Taiwan will recruit more suppliers to introduce smart farming systems, cold chain & package equipment and indoor fish farming products before June.
