Make Earth Colorful Again

By Chang Che Wei

In the post-pandemic era, Taiwan, well known as the "Fruit Kingdom" in Asia, has faced a crisis due to export restrictions and overproduction of fruits, leading to a huge impact on the agriculture industry. The MECA Project is aimed to combine two important communities to support our local agriculture business:

1. Farms, including official agri-business, corporates, and private farmers
2. The beverage industry (i.e. Bars, Bistros, Cafes, etc.),

With the power of the internet and data integration, we are able to monitor information of overproduced fruits instantly and use them to create amazing drinks and deliver to consumers collaborating with the beverage industry.

The first cocktail in this project is called "Palette #One", leveraging overproduced pineapples in Taiwan.

Ketel One Vodka, spicy pineapple cordial and earthy-taste liqueur. The recipe can be easily replicated across the Taiwanese bartending community. Besides, it's also good for putting into bottles to be the RTD product for to-go business and the other shops without professional equipment.

Palette "#One" represents that the MECA Project will keep creating more and more cocktails with different overproduced fruits to support our communities comprehensively and raise awareness of customers around the issue.

We also encourage involved bartenders to create their signature with pineapples or other overproduced fruits in the future.

With these beautiful and colorful fruits, we try harder and harder to Make Earth Colorful Again in this "Pandemic Dark Age".
