Taiwan Sugar Corporation (TSC; Chinese: 台灣糖業股份有限公司; pinyin: Táiwān Tángyè Gōngsī) or Taisugar (台糖; Táitáng) is a state-run enterprise of Taiwan, with headquarters in Tainan City.

History[edit]

The corporation was established on May 1, 1946 by the Nationalist government after the handover of Taiwan from Japan to Republican China, by merging all of the sugar companies (Dai-Nihon, Taiwan, Meiji, and Ensuiko Sugar Company) during the Japanese era in Taiwan. In the 1950s and 1960s, sugar was one of the major exports of Taiwan; the corporation remains a major land owner today.

Taiwan's sugar trade, which flourished for almost 400 years, is now a sunset industry. The Taiwan Sugar Corporation has diversified its business into tourism, floriculture, biotechnology, and retailing. It also operates a chain of gas stations and invests in Taiwan High Speed Rail.
