Made-in-Macao Biotechnology Supplements Safeguard Urbanites’ Health
2021-04-01


        Tin Un Tai Wo Group Co., Ltd. is a Macao-based company. Its factory Tai Wo Tong Health Food Production Factory has not only inherited the Chinese herbal medicine culture that has thousands years of history, but also carries out research, develops and manufactures traditional Chinese medical products by means of biotechnology in collaboration with a technology enterprise in Taiwan, including Antrodia Cinnamomea capsules, the most well-known product under the ‘Made in Macao’ brand Tai Wo Tong. Tin Un Tai Wo Group introduced the “ruby of Taiwan”, Antrodia Cinnamomea, to Macao, where they perform the subsequent extraction and processing work. The product has been proven by empirical data to be more effective than Ganoderma capsules. Tin Un Tai Wo Group strives to fill the gap in the health supplement market of Macao and craft a “Made in Macao” brand.

Eyeing Biotechnology

        Si Oi Cheng, Executive Director of Tin Un Tai Wo Group, said that back in 2009, the commercial application of biotechnology was not common in the Macao market. She noticed that in the modern world, urbanites generally lead a bustling life and don’t sleep and eat on a regular schedule, which lead to people’s demand for more options in terms of maintaining health. With this in mind, they focused on biotechnology and Tin Un Tai Wo Group Co., Ltd. was founded in 2010 after a year of preparation. The company imports quality herbal medicines from other Asian regions to Macao, where the processing and manufacturing take place. They hope the Mainland and Macao Closer Economic Partnership Arrangement (CEPA) will facilitate the launch of their products in the mainland market. To date, the group has launched Tai Wo Tong Antrodia Cinnamomea capsules, Keymax Tongkat Ali capsules and Keymax Peptide powder.

Antrodia Cinnamomea capsules the top pick

        Tai Wo Tong’s Antrodia Cinnamomea capsules are the signature health product of the group that has been selected to be displayed and marketed at “Macao Ideas” of the Macao Trade and Investment Promotion Institute (IPIM). Si says Antrodia Cinnamomea is even more effective than Ganoderma: “Antrodia Cinnamomea mainly serves to protect the liver, enhance immunity, and help inhibit inflammation and oxidation. It is very useful for people who often suffer from lack of sleep, dry skin, or chronic smoking and drinking. Many people think that Antrodia Cinnamomea and Ganoderma have more or less the same effect, but tests have proved that the amount of polysaccharides and triterpenoids in Tai Wo Tong’s Antrodia Cinnomomea capsules surpasses those in typical Ganoderma products”. The Tai Wo Tong’s Antrodia Cinnomomea capsules adopt a packaging design that shows characteristic Chinese culture, which includes the use of auspicious and majestic colours, red and gold. Such design allows the products stand out among most products in traditional Chinese medicine pharmacies.

Keeping Marketing Strategies Up to Date

        The company’s business is now progressing along a favourable path. To extend the business to Mainland China and overseas markets, Si is looking for more promotional channels and collaborations, saying that “the times are constantly changing. At the moment, we have allocated more marketing resources to various online social platforms and we plan to promote the Tai Wo Tong products to the mainland in the future through collaboration with influencers”. In addition, joining Macao Ideas has also helped promote Tin Un Tai Wo Group to a certain extent, “the publicity efforts and business matching sessions organised by Macao Ideas allow more enterprises to learn about our brand. We have also actively participated in IPIM’s training programmes and field trips to constantly learn the operational models of enterprises in different regions and seek greater improvements’.
