Kim-tshù-bī / A platform makes fruit vinegar from NG fruits.


Kim-tshù-bī is a vinegar-making platform inspired by the global food issue. It is set up in produce markets and medium and large supermarkets for consumers, vendors, and farmers to make vinegar from unappealing or perishing fruits in a simple and intuitive DIY way, increasing the added value of fruits while minimizing food waste.

The platform provides glutinous rice vinegar and sugar for making vinegar, and the sugar can be added freely. Under the platform, glass bottles are sold and recycled to create a green consumption model. Fruit vinegar is made and sold on the platform, and this creates more business opportunities for small farmers.
