New Large Fridges and Freezers Built in Taitung County to Extend Shelf Life of Produce
The Agriculture Department of Taitung County Government has proactively requested 60 million in subsidies from the Huadong Sustainable Development Fund. The Department plans to build fridges/freezers at the end of Zhonghua Road in Taitung City (the former meat market), which will be a space of 740 square meters equipped with 12 fridges and 11 freezers. In the future, the facilities will be managed by Taitung County Produce Company.
Meanwhile, Taitung may have the overproduction of red quinoa and Roselle. In the future, the produce supply can be regulated by storage in the fridges and freezers in cooperation of the refrigerated logistic station to help expand the market of Taitung’s agriculture and fishery.
