Taiwanese Dried Fruit

In 2021, we ran a Kickstarter campaign to collect preorders for dried fruit sourced from independent farmers in Taiwan, who were negatively impacted by the sudden ban China put in place on Taiwanese pineapples.

In 30 days, we raised over $100,000 from 1,000 backers, and purchased over 14 tons of fruit from small farmers vulnerable to cross-strait trade volatility.

Now our Golden Diamond Pineapple, Irwin Mango, Pearl Guava, Green Mango, and Wax Apple have been selected several times over as a staff favorite by the teams at Bon Appetit and The Strategist. They have been featured in Foreign Policy for their geopolitical relevance, and have been gifted by the US Taiwan Economic and Cultural Office to their VIP contacts. Available online, in our Brooklyn shop, and at over twenty-five retailers across the country.
