TAIWAN - Taiwan's Council of Agriculture is under pressure from feed millers and poultry producers to establish national mycotoxin standards for grains and feedstuffs.

The US Grains Council Taiwan office is working to promote US standards as a benchmark in setting national quality control systems in Taiwan. It recognizes that these new standards have to be adaptable to encourage producers, even at the most local level, to embrace new industry guidelines.

This month the Council's Taiwan office worked with Taiwan’s COA and feed sector representatives to hold a mycotoxin standard policy meeting. The Council of Agriculture plans to publish a technical bulletin on mycotoxins by July, conduct seminars about the standard for feed millers and livestock producers and invite a US or Japanese consultant to share his or her expertise on mycotoxin prevention and control at these seminars.

This meeting succeeded in involving a round-table of key industry leaders from the academic community and government agencies.
