Hitachino Beer Removed From Taiwan Shelves Over Nuclear Contamination Fears

14 December 2016

imageFrom TotalTaipei:

While the beer is approved for import by the Ministry of Finance, some consumers are still wary of products from the surrounding Fukushima region of Japan. As the store in Kaohsiung doesn’t sell large quantities of Hitachino, management has decided to remove the beer from shelves. The store sells an average of 36 bottles of Hitachino beer each month.

Hitachino’s brewery is in Ibraraki, one of the five prefectures affected by the Fukushima nuclear disaster in 2011. All products from Fukushima prefecture are banned from being exported at this time. Products from the other four prefectures undergo strict inspections to ensure consumer safety. Only Taiwan and China still maintain bans on food products from those five prefectures.
