2020 FFTC Dragon Fruit Workshop — Dragon Fruit Value Chain for Global Markets

 

Date: 22-23 September 2020
Online and Onsite at National Chung Hsing University, Taiwan

Dragon fruit production and markets in Asia are fast growing for the past five years. Food and Fertilizer Technology Center for the Asian and Pacific Region (FFTC) is working with its country partners and building a dragon fruit research network (DFNet) to help farmers in the Asian and Pacific Region to develop dragon fruit value chain for global markets. Two dragon fruit workshops highlighting the topics from production to distribution were organized in 2018 and 2019. This year, FFTC, Taiwan Agricultural Research Institute (TARI), Taichung District Agricultural Research and Extension Station (TCDARES), National Chung Hsing University (NCHU) and DFNet are all collaborating to hold the 3rd Dragon Fruit Workshop focusing on dragon fruit value chain for global markets. Experts from the Asian-Pacific region are invited to discuss

  • Dragon fruit imports and exports: practices, challenges and country experiences
  • Good Agricultural Practices (GAPs), quality standards and quarantine requirements for international markets
  • Nutritional and functional traits, value addition, processing properties, and consumer preferences 
  • Successful stories, and public and private partnerships

We are cordially inviting all dragon fruit growers, industry players, academics and enthusiasts to join us in this workshop. We sincerely welcome your participation. Join us online or onsite at the National Chung-Hsing University, Taiwan.
