Tieh Chin Kung Company introduction
Tieh Chin Kung Metal Industry has been manufacturing and exporting stainless steel products for many years, establishing a good business reputation and becoming a renowned stainless steel manufacturer. As Guanmiao's traditional rattan ware industry started to fade away, Tieh Chin Kung saw an opportunity to diversify its businesses and revive tourism in the Guanmiao areas. Tieh Chin Kung Food (TCKW Food) was established for these purposes in July, 2008. Multiple pastry chefs with over 20 years of experiences were gathered to create pineapple cakes with 100% natural stuffing, reversing the common notion that pineapple cakes were stuffed with winter melons. These 100% authentic pineapple fillings redefined pineapple cakes, providing consumers with a snack that is healthy, nutritious, and safe. TCKW's pineapple cakes have now become an exclusive souvenir in Guanmiao area, and is now on its way to representing real Taiwanese pineapple cakes throughout the world! In addition to its marketing efforts, TCKW is also dedicated to charitable activities and caring for underprivileged members of our soci-ety. A total of 1000 boxes of pineapple cakes were sold during the 2012 Mother's Day Charity Sales. The sum of money collected, worth NT$ 300,000, was donated to the Fund for Children and Families of Tainan City in order to support underprivileged families. Such acts have made TCKW a benchmark amongst other companies.

TCKW's Guanmiao Pineapple Cakes are made using a unique non-traditional way. No artificial flavoring, preservatives, or color-ings of any sort are added. The best seasonal harvests of Guanmiao pineapples are simmered carefully to create a sweet yet refreshing pineapple stuffing. Premium grade wheat flour, fresh eggs, and 100% natural butter imported from New Zealand are then used to create the smooth crust made 100% by hand. The result is 100% natural, healthy, and nutritious pineapple cake filled with wholesome pineapple flavors and even the individual strands of the pineapple fruit can be tasted. TCKW's pineapple cakes also come in other flavors, including egg yolk, cranberry, and kabayaki eel (roast eel) flavors.
