Cooperation with Communities

      In the heyday of sugar production in the past, Taiwan Sugar Corporation was an important economic pillar of the community. Today, although the sugar manufacturing industry has declined, the farmland leasing and regional land development enable the sugar factories to be closely related with the lives of residents in the communities. Therefore, our bases around Taiwan would cooperate with communities on holidays or festivals or on an irregular basis to hold activities, or spontaneous activities will also be organized to care for the disadvantaged groups in the communities, clean the community environment and jointly market the communities.
