TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – Taiwanese food producer I-Mei Foods Co., Ltd. marked its 82nd anniversary Saturday with the opening of a special exhibition.
The company transformed itself from a food subcontractor to become Taiwan’s foremost quality food producer, with a reputation that came strengthened out of the relentless assault of food safety scandals hitting the country over the past few years.
In cooperation with the Chiang Wei-shui Foundation, I-Mei Foods opened an exhibition about its history at the URS27W Film Range, the location of its original headquarters in Taipei City’s Dadaocheng area. The show gave an impression of its founding and of the long road the company has traveled since, while it also reflected the spirit of earnestness and integrity of Taiwanese enterprise.
Walking into the exhibition was like entering a time machine, with a prominent display of old food processing machinery and landmark company products, including metal wafer boxes. Visitors took pictures of the food products, which reminded them of the favorite snacks of their youth. [FULL STORY]
