Taiwan Sugar Corp. nabbed 33 awards March 11 at the seventh annual Taiwan International Orchid Show, a record for the Tainan-based state-run enterprise.
“Among the prizes we received, the most important one was for a white orchid, code named K62901, which captured both the grand prize in the Phalaenopsis category and the First Class Certificate from the American Orchid Society,” the TSC said.
“Such a strong performance testifies to TSC’s global leadership in growing moth orchids,” the company added. “It shows our horticulture products are popular with consumers worldwide.”
