Peer-reviewed studies have attributed a multitude of health benefits to Resveratrol, ranging from anti-aging to cardioprotection and beyond, underscoring its substantial life-extending potential.

Previously, USC has successfully marketed mung bean sprout facilities in Taiwan and Mainland China, with a daily production capacity of 37,500 kilograms across 25 growing lines. It is now sold at several chain stores, including Carrefour Taiwan. USC is committed to introducing freshly germinated sprouts to the Taiwanese market - a nutritious and tantalizing culinary delight.

Michael Lai, USC founder, said "basically we will mainly develop our own vegetable business across the world. But we are also looking for partners who would like to have a joint venture, license or even buy our facility. By implementing our Ubisprouting technology, we all together can do a better environmental and friendly cultivation to produce more various food for our wonderful planet citizen."
