Assistance in Agricultural Development

Agricultural Land Leases and Value-added Service

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”. As of the end of December 2019, the area of farmland leased in cooperation with the policy to balance production and sales was 2,761.04 hectares.
      TSC transforms the land tenants into partners, providing tenants with more services such as information of production technology, marketing and channel characteristics and assisting them in solving the problems they face, upgrading farmland leasing business into a full range of services. Through online communities and face-to-face interviews, we increase opportunities with young farmers to understand the difficulties they face and their needs and also exchange information concerning agricultural policies, technologies and experiences so as to help them effectively solve practical problems which will enhance their recognition of and cooperation with our company. TSC Agricultural and Economic Strategy and Business Management Workshop was held on December 19, 2019, and young farmers were invited to share their management concepts and experiences.

Young Farmers Marketing Counseling and Channel Services

      TSC also exerts its influence on agriculture and expands the target of service from TSC’s tenants to the entire Hualien area in Eastern Taiwan. It is hoped that through various development of young farmer business, it can assist in the development of regional agriculture and more young people will be encouraged to return to their hometown. From May 2018 to December 2019, Hualien Tourism Sugar Factory was provided for the young farmers to set up a Weekend Green Market, the Dawn Market, to market the agricultural products produced by local young farmers via the tourism benefit of Hualien Tourism Sugar Factory.

Taking Care of Sugarcane Farmers
