I-MEI was founded in 1934. From a small cake shop in Taipei during the Japanese colonization, it now has become one of the most well-known pastry enterprises in Taiwan. Over these seventy years, I-MEI's insistence on the highest quality in food production as well as its down-to-earth attitude has accompanied many Taiwanese through their golden years. In 2006, to carry on the chairman Gao Tengjiao's belief, "Food is an industry that calls for a clear conscience and decent people," I-MEI Foods Demonstration Training Center was established in Nankan, Taoyuan and was then renamed to "I-MEI Foods Apprentices Training Center" in 2009. In the same year, it honorably received the Excellent Tourism Factory certification from the Ministry of Economic Affairs. Taking a trip to I-MEI Tourism Factory, even a glutton's taste buds will be satisfied. With the fragrance of coffee, cake and bread baking drifting in the air, from cookies, candies, cooking materials to ice products, you will be able to choose fresh, delicious and healthy products. In the vital I-MEI Ecological Garden, production equipment bear witness to the history of the company. The elegant history exhibition area records the thriving story of how I-MEI grew step by step. Besides the world of desserts from the north and south, as well as Taiwanese cuisine, many healthy and vegetable set meals are also available in the Center. In addition, in the Cake DIY area, there is a series of DIY activities. As long as you book in advance, you can enjoy the fun and a sense of accomplishment from baking your own goods. I-MEI Foods Apprentices Training Center is full of fun and the best place for you to shop!
Individual visitors are free to walk around the Center. For general groups and special professional visitation, please make reservations in advance by phone. Guided tours and DIY activities need to be reserved a week in advance.
