Grape King’s Bioengineering Center was established in 1991 and now operates as a Research and Development center with new materials development and production capabilities. It concentrates on key component development and application of Grape King Bio’s own raw materials. In recent years, the Center has cooperated actively with national academia and research institutions. This collaboration focused on material development, functional verification and process improvement to build up the core technology. Grape King Bio has been granted nine DoIT (Department of Industrial Technology, Ministry of Economic affairs) and IDB-supported (Industrial Development Bureau, Ministry of Economic Affairs) scientific projects and over 20 joint academia-industry research projects from NSC (National Science Council), Council of Agriculture and Ministry of Education. We now have one patent in Canada,three patent in the United States,two patents in Japan, nine patents in China and 53 patents in Taiwan for Antrodia cinnamomea, Antrodia salmonea, Lactic acid bacteria , Antibiotics, Hericium erinaceus , Lepista nuda and Cordyceps cicadae.More Patents
Our Biotech Research Institute presently holds a fermentation production capacity of 386 tons, which is the largest in Taiwan. This is made up of six 1 ton, a 2 ton, a 3 ton, five 5 ton, a 10 ton, four 20 ton, four 40 ton and a 50 ton. Including pilot fermenters, there are a total of 50 fermentors making up a total fermentation production capacity of 386 tons, the largest in Taiwan. In 2015 the construction of our second fermentation facility was started at Longtan branch of Hsinchu Science Park and is expected to be completed in 2018. Downstream manufacturing facilities include membrane concentration systems, freeze-dryers, centrifuges, cold fluid bed dryers and pressure filters to provide Grape King Bio, Pro-Partner Ltd. and Shanghai Grape King with ingredients for functional foods. Our most distinguished functional food product since 1997 is Ganoderma King which was introduced at NT$ 10 per capsule and overtook the market of Ganoderma. In 1999, we produced the world’s first Antrodia cinnamomea mycelium and launched “Antrodia King” which rapidly gained popularity. The Bioengineering Center prides itself as having the largest and best Antrodia production facility in Taiwan. In 2015 Grape King Bio became the world’s first company to mass produce Erinacine A, targeting the growing neurodegenerative disease market. Our eye care product Cordyceps cicadae and Erinacine A and Cordyceps cicadae mycelia are now being sold in America and Japan respectively.More Equipments
