HOME ESG Performance Health and Safety
  1. Created healthy and low-sugar products with few additives:
Taisun’s Peanut Soup category comprises two varieties: the traditional Peanut Nut Soup and the Taiwan Peanut Soup, crafted using locally sourced ingredients. In 2022, Taisun, a snack expert, introduced a new product called Peanuts with Oat Milk.
This peanut soup is made with high-quality oat milk as the base, combined with large and plump peanuts and oats. It is completely free of additives, milk, and creamer, making it suitable for vegetarians and those with dairy sensitivities. Additionally, it is 100% lactose-free. Peanuts with Oat Milk is a healthy option for replenishing cereal nutrients and can be enjoyed as a breakfast, snack, or midnight snack. The sugar content per 100g is 3.5g lower than that of Peanut Nut Soup.
Additionally, it offers a refreshing taste, without being overly sweet or greasy. This makes it a healthy and delicious option.
To meet consumer demand for additive-free products, Taisun introduced the Taisun Japanese Unsweetened Green Tea in 2022. This new product is made from carefully selected premium tea leaves and brewed with 100% real tea leaves. It does not contain tea extract or tea powder, and is both sugar-free and additive-free.
This offers a fresh choice for consumers who prefer unsweetened tea. The product is packaged in aluminum cans, promoting recycling and aligning with the principles of environmental protection.

Customer safety and health are essential aspects that rely on the entire manufacturing process. This process encompasses research and development, management of raw materials and foundry, process management, laboratory control, and even third-party quality testing.

Every year, we convene a team of relevant personnel to assess our suppliers. This process involves creating a supplier evaluation plan and conducting
evaluations either in writing or on-site, in accordance with the plan. We expect our suppliers to propose improvement measures or plans to address any defects
and ensure the quality of deliveries.

The evaluation results serve as a basis for future collaboration. In 2022, our evaluation was centered on social issues and environmental protection. The aim was to encourage suppliers to prioritize their social responsibility
and adhere to ethical, legal, and environmental standards. Our goal is to foster sustainable partnerships with suppliers through a practical management

3. Inspection of Raw Materials

The quality assurance personnel inspect incoming raw materials in accordance with the specifications. If the materials fail to meet the acceptance criteria, the supplier will be notified and the materials will be returned.
Accepted raw materials undergo further screening during production to ensure quality control.

OEM Management

Taisun carefully chooses outstanding OEMs in accordance with the Operational Standards for the Evaluation and Guidance of Outsourced OEMs. Taisun engages with appropriate OEMs based on product characteristics. OEMs must meet specific criteria before being considered as candidates. These criteria include HACCP certification, a valid factory registration certificate, and a business registration certificate. For beverage products, a water rights certificate is required. Additionally, OEMs should have no record of violations. Taisun encourages original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to enhance their factory management practices in order to comply with international standards and ensure that the quality of their products meets regulatory requirements.

Taisun is obligated to visit all OEMs participating in the co-production program in order to evaluate the operational conditions, perform quality testing, and validate the products. The items to be verified are as follows:
inspection of sampled products from each batch, daily production audit (graded management), GMP audit (graded management), quality meeting communication and review (graded management), and annual evaluation (graded management). Arrange for quality assurance personnel to visit the OEMs periodically to monitor the quality. In addition to the OEMs’ inspections, samples of the products are taken and sent back to Taisun for inspection. This is done to ensure that the products meet our requirements and to prevent any defective products from entering the market, which could negatively impact the Company’s reputation.

Every year, Taisun develops an evaluation plan and conducts on-site inspections at the OEMs. These evaluations assess the organization and personnel, plant facilities and factory environment, machinery and equipment, hygiene management, process management, and quality management. The results of these evaluations serve as the foundation for future cooperation and graded management.

In 2022, nine OEMs signed OEM contracts. Due to product adjustments made by Taisun, the total number of OEMs decreased by one compared to 2021. It is worth noting that all OEMs have successfully obtained 100% of the necessary food safety certificates. We are actively promoting our OEMs to acquire food safety and quality certification.

1. Track and Trace

To minimize potential losses in the event of a major product abnormality, Taisun promptly traces the supplier of food materials associated with any problematic product. Additionally, the Company swiftly traces the flow of products from the problematic food materials. By efficiently identifying and removing defective products, Taisun aims to safeguard consumer health and minimize any potential damage to the company. When a defective product is promptly recovered, it is immediately traced back to its root cause in order to prevent any future abnormalities. Taisun has successfully implemented a tracking system in compliance with the Identification and Traceability Management Procedures. As a result, Taisun is now able to promptly identify and address any abnormal flow direction within a 24-hour timeframe. Additionally, Taisun has efficiently established a recovery and shelving network.
In 2022, we conducted a total of 20 simulated recycling tests to cover all product types, including OEM products. These tests achieved a 100% recycling rate, ensuring that the production history of the products can be tracked and traced.
To ensure the tracking and tracing of product flow and the identification of raw material sources, the government mandates that oil and fat manufacturers, tea beverage manufacturers, and soybean, oil, and tea importers upload every batch of their products onto the tracking e-platform. We have complied 100% with this requirement by uploading a total of 280 batches from the manufacturing industry and 40 items from the importing industry onto the Food and Drug Administration’s Tracebook system in 2022.(
