Fair Trade Ice Pop 2010 Dimensions variable Poster, carton, ice pop, freezer, PVC In the Cross-Straits Economic Cooperation Framework Agreement (ECFA）signed into effect in the middle of this year’s long hot summer, the People’s Republic of China did not require Taiwan to further open up its markets to agricultural products from the PRC.
However, but in the free-flow of technology, human resources, finances, labor, and products in the post-ECFA economy, name brands along with the variety of products available will be diluted as lower valued Chinese products, and products manufactured by Taiwanese corporations in their Chinese factories, are re-imported into Taiwan, with a cost advantage. Moreover the aftermath of Taiwan joining the World Trade Organization (WTO), farmers began to abandon their fields. This trend has continued ever since. The Agricultural Redevelopment Policy was revised in 2000, but it only encouraged the rise of a new crop of mansions to spring up on fallow farm land. Subsequent to the the passage of the Production Innovation Ordinance in 2010, Taiwan’s farmlands were now able to satisfy the bellies of business consortia and land developers. The Farmland Re-Utilization Ordinance that was passed after rough review, outlines plans to inject 1.5 billion NT dollars into the “regeneration of the farm villages.
” What has been seen is a superficial face-lift of bucolic scenery, rather than any specific and substantial benefits that will truly help farmers or sustain our agricultural industries. What is really needed now is a comprehensive production and delivery system and a self-sustaining food production rate in order to bolster the future impact on Taiwanese industries. But these current faulty land policies are like a mutated monster, swallowing up our beautiful island. Our farms and farm villages have quietly vanished without causing any alarm. A decade from now, what will be left of Taiwan? Fair Trade Ice Pop was produced in co-orperation with the Spring Trading Company, who is currently promoting Taiwan’s organic farming industry and fair trade.
Through the process of using natural fruit to produce ice lollies, the trading and the eventual consuming of this product are a response to the crisis of Taiwanese farms becoming extinct. The images and text printed on the packaging of the ice lollies describe the damaging effects on Taiwan’s agricultural industry through various harmful policies.
For instance: the loss of Taiwan’s technological branding, the flooding of Taiwanese markets by lower-priced mainland Chinese goods, and the disappearing agricultural land, the insufficient production and delivery systems, the low rate of self-sustaining food production, etc. The Fair Trade Ice Pop attempts to use fair trade as an economic model. Outside of a standardized dominant capitalist system of monopoly, and through cooperation with marginalized producers and farmers, these ice lollies hope to maintain a self-sustaining production and consumption model as well as become a message delivery tool in a consumer society.
