The foundation has organized 10 promotional events to be staged around the country, the first of which was held in the southern county with the participation of several central and local government officials.

During the event, the foundation chairman Huang Chin-rong and a Council of Agriculture official, Lee Chin-chun, called on consumers to purchase pork products carrying the CAS label at meats products markets.

Some 1,000 people, who were divided into 30 teams, joined forces to prepare a wide range of pork recipes, including baked sausages and meats, salted pork, smoked bacon and roasted suckling pig, had a good time at the event.

At present, the annual average hog trading price is between NT$4,300-NT$4,500 per 100 kilograms, much lower than last year's NT$5,000 per 100 kilograms, and lower than the cost of production, which is NT$4,800-NT$5,000 per 100 kilograms.
