There were many halal food & beverage items, Halal beauty products and halal agricultural products being displayed and yes, even the famous Taiwanese boba is there. Bubble Tea for Taiwan is made using halal raw material which makes this an ideal beverage for our Muslim friends. 

The main exhibitors at the Halal Pavilion includes five of the most iconic halal food product and bubble tea manufacturer includes Shh Chen Foods, Yilan Anyong LOHAS, FuFann Enterprise, Kuojer Enterprise and Yung Soon Lih Food Machine. The Instant Milk Tea, Premium FIsh Essence, COconut Paste and raw Bubble Tea Ingredients and Multi-functional Bubble Tea Cooker are among the highlighted products.
