In order to explore a new form of cross-Strait cooperation in food, the "Sha County snack's visit to Taiwan and the cross-Strait snacks cultural forum," organized by Fujian's Sha County was held in the Taipei Grand Hotel on May 5.

Chen Jinxi, secretary of the Sha County committee, introduced the development of Sha County's snack industry to over 200 guests in Taiwan.

Sha County snacks have a long history and are known to be living artifacts of the Han people's food culture.

Currently, 39 varieties of Sha County snacks have been labeled as "Famous Chinese Snacks" and 63 kinds as "Famous Fujian Snacks." The China Cuisine Association awarded Sha County the title of "Snack Culture City“ in China on December 8, 2006.

The production process of Sha County snacks was listed in Fujian intangible cultural heritage in 2007, and has been declared a national intangible cultural heritage. Representing Fujian, Sha County snacks are also available on the Chinese Food Street at the Shanghai 2010 World Expo.
