Since last year, China has suspended the import of a number of items from Taiwan, including grouper fish, pineapples, and sugar apples, citing pest concerns, which Taiwan has strongly denied.


Taiwan's Council of Agriculture said in a statement that it would take the necessary steps to assist the latest companies affected by the "short-term" suspension.

We've noticed this and are attempting to learn more about it "Reuters quoted a Kuo Yuan Ye Foods employee as saying.


It was unclear whether more suspensions were on the way, but Taiwan's most valuable exports to China are electronics and parts, machinery, plastics, and chemicals.

The suspensions came as China repeatedly warned Pelosi against visiting Taiwan, which it claims as its own, in a visit that Beijing claims would violate the one-China principle, which Washington has vowed to uphold.


The General Administration of Customs in China did not respond immediately to Reuters' request for comment.

I found out about the ban before I left work last night "Reuters spoke with a business manager at one of the affected Taiwanese food producers, who added that he had no idea why his company had been banned.


"There are food companies saying their products have already been rejected at Chinese customs," he said, declining to be identified.

Hong Kong, China: China has suspended imports of biscuits and pastries from 35 Taiwanese exporters since Monday, sending a warning shot to the self-governed island ahead of a possible visit to Taiwan by US House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

Taiwan's official Central News Agency reported on Tuesday that 2,066 entries were listed as "import suspension" among the 3,200 Taiwanese companies registered with China's customs under the category of food.


According to Reuters calculations based on registration data posted on the website of China's General Administration of Customs, 35 of the 107 entries in the category of biscuits, pastries, and bread have been listed as "import suspension."
