Taiwan produces 4 to 5 million tons of agricultural waste every year. The disposal process generates methane with high greenhouse gas potential. Most farmers cannot handle these wastes; about 30% of the waste went to landfills, and 50% were used as compost. Since 2012, TCI has launched agricultural circular economy project, the agricultural by-products were verified by TCI’s exclusive “Bio-resource Data Mining Platform” with strong health benefits such as sleep aid, anti-hair fall, fat reduction, liver protection, etc. The other best practice from agriculture waste is the alternative use of quinoa’s residue. TCI uses quinoa extract as a collagen boosting ingredient, and the residue of quinoa were used as organic fertilizer after fermentation process. The quinoa fiber after extraction was used in the product packaging materials.
TCI continues to invest more than 5% of its annual revenue in cutting-edge research and efficacy verification. The Company extends its unique technology to three sustainability goals: maximizing the value agricultural by-products, mitigating food loss &waste, reducing carbon emissions, and promoting community inclusion.

We are honored to take this opportunity to share our vision, plan, and result. TCI looks forward to more branded customers joining us in creating better future for human and the planet.
