Yilan is rich in agricultural resources with a lot of farm lands growing various agricultural products.
The story of this Kumquat Jam DIY workshop began like this: Kumquat is abundant in Yilan. In fact, 90% of kumquat in Taiwan is grown here. People didn’t know what to do with this excess supply of citrus fruit. An old lady with medical background thought that it was a waste because kumquat has medical value. She often boiled kumquat drink for the villagers for better health. The first generation of Agrioz owner carried her believe in “serve people with what you eat” and developed healthy kumquat products with no artificial colouring, added sugar, etc. The second generation of owner expand the business further by adding healthy elements which as low calories and wellness.
