Development of New Agriculture

Organic Food

       TSC actively develops its own organic crop cultivation area to continue trail planning and mass production of economic crops. In addition, we also cooperate with organic certified farmers to supply high quality organic vegetables to high schools and elementary schools in Taichung City and Tainan City for school children’s nutritious lunch, which not only assists great farmers in the expansion of distribution channels but also meet the market demand. Organic agriculture is a business of “conscience”. We must give consumers 100% confidence in all the products we sell, giving them our commitment so that they can trust in our products. Every production process has to be practical and assured without overlooking any details. Therefore, TSC prides itself on its production model in which all TSC employees personally involve in the production process, and only those working in the same industry can understand their hard work. We have an agricultural technical team and the team members are enthusiastically devoted in the field of organic agriculture, regarding organic planting as their own business in all weathers. With this strong team, TSC is even more confident in the development of organic agriculture. In 2017, the organic rice verification area reached 103.08 hectares and organic fruit and vegetable verification area reached 67.75 hectares.

Non-genetically Modified (Non-GMO) Soybeans

       The production of indigenous soybeans in Taiwan is scarce, and most of the soybeans in Taiwan depend on imports, and the proportion of genetically modified soybeans is as high as 90% and above.Scientists still have doubts about whether genetically modified crops would cause mutations in human genes. However, imported genetically modified crops may have excessive pesticide residues and aflatoxin or other harmful factors produced during transportation. In the autumn of 2017, Taiwan’s indigenous non-GMO soybeans were planted in Gaoping Area, and the products also passed SGS 373 item (pesticide residues test 373 item) and Paraquat residues test. The natural sunlight drying method is applied to produce fresh and safe local non-GMO soybeans. The plantation area of non-GMO soybeans in 2017reached 95hectares.

Agricultural Policies to stabilize the balance of production and marketing of domestic agricultural products

       To cooperate with the government’s agricultural policy to stabilize the balance of the production and sales of domestic agricultural products, TSC handles the affairs concerning the lease of land for the cultivation of regulatory crops in accordance with the “Coordination between Council of Agriculture of Executive Yuan and Ministry of Economic Affairs for the Lease of TSC-owned Land”. In 2017, the area of farmland leased in cooperation with the policy to balance production and sales was2,624.43hectares.

Promotion of organic farming

  1. To cooperate with the government’s promotion of new agricultural policy of organic farming promotion, TSC provided the government land for rent and set up 250.64 hectares of organic agriculture zone in 2017, and the leased area for other organic crops was 780.43 hectares.
  2. TSC revised the Company’s internal control system for agricultural land leases, and organic cultivation shall be given priority when it comes to the lease of the Company’s farmland. In addition, those renting the Company’s farmland for organic farming are provided with a 9-year lease guarantee. 

Green afforestation

       To cooperate with the government’s “Healthy Taiwan” policy, TSC actively engaged in afforestation and greening of Taiwan. In 2017, the total afforestation tending area reached 12,295.97 hectares, including 498.75 hectares of afforestation by the public, 387.89 hectares of eco-friendly parks, 509.42 hectares of afforestation at the planters’ expense and 10,899.91 hectares of afforestation on the flatland.
