Durian candies find markets in Taiwan

By Rose Palacio

Davao City (18 January) -- Dabawenyos must be proud of durian candies and durian jams, which are gaining acceptance in Taiwan.

Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) City Field Office Director Lou Pasawa, interviewed over DXRP radio during the “ARENA-XI” forum, said the export volume is still small but is a big step for Davao City’s small and medium entrepreneurs.

At least 15 to 20 member enterprises of the Davao Food Processors Association are home-based with less than a million pesos in capital. The capital requirement in food processing is not that big. One can produce durian candies with just Pl,000.00, he said.

Pasawa is optimistic that Davao-based SMEs would hit it big in the export market in the future, adding that the market is big and we have better opportunities to export our locally-produced Durian candies.

Durian candy production is an export industry in Thailand. Other food processors are eyeing to export said candies in some parts of United Arab Emirates. (PIA-RPalacio) [top]
