Currently, there are draft beer distributors throughout the country to deliver our most-fresh, ready-to-drink product, Taiwan Draft Beer, to restaurants, night markets, and pubs directly from beer factories. To ensure a better supply of new products for customers, TTL has employed beer-and-liquor-promoting waitresses in large food and beverage venues, and has selected some of its employees to hold tasting fairs in hyper-markets for product promotion.

To ensure more convenience for our customers, there are various purchase methods to choose, such as telephone shopping, centralized shopping, transfer-payment, or delayed-payment. In recent years, we have remodeled business outlets and adjusted shipping routes to provide a more comfortable and convenient shopping experience. To improve total quality management, each operation station has already received ISO-9001 accreditation and established a performance benchmark evaluation system.

“Long Life Cigarettes” is the most popular name in Taiwan cigarette products. In the period between 2002 and 2003, we successfully developed a new product line, the LongLife Gentle. It is a high class, luxury line of the Long Life cigarettes. The cigarette sports a mainstream, mixed-flavor blend of aromatic tobacco leaves that quickly became popular among cigarette smokers after its introduction to the market. We were able to focus our resources into product marketing and segregate the Gentle product series into a separate, independent line. We also imported new, cutting edge technology; such as grooved cigarette filters, coconut shell active charcoal filters, the 6-second tobacco strand quick-drying system, and production line laser punching technology. Consequently, we revised product packaging to create a younger, high-tech image. As a result, the Gentle product series has become the largest cigarette blend of TTL. Meanwhile, we also developed a number of new products in varying packaging containers, packaging designs, cigarette tastes and price ranges to revel the high technological standards of TTL, such as ‘Banana New Paradise’ series and ‘Tien Leaf Formosa’ series to improve our products to be more competitive and internationalized.
