Taiwan Commits To Buy $ 485 Million Dollars Of American Wheat

At a stop in North Dakota this week, Taiwan agreed to buy close to $ 485 million worth of wheat over the next two years.  North Dakota Wheat Commission Marketing Specialist Erica Olson says Taiwan is the sixth largest importer of U.S. Wheat and North Dakota will supply a large share of that purchase.

Olson says the Taiwanese like the type and quality of wheat North Dakota and the U.S. provides and usually pay cash for their purchases making them a very reliable customer.

Olson says her group hosted the Taiwan buyers and took them on a tour of some elevators so they could see how the wheat is handled.
