Specialty Food Brought to You by… Inmates?
While serving time in Taiwan prisons, some female inmates are creating specialty food products including high-quality chocolate, kimchi, peanut brittle, and soy sauce. With local consumers concerned about food safety issues, the inmates' additive-free products have garnered a loyal following, generating more than $15.6 million last year. The money goes towards victim compensation, facilities improvement, and inmate wages. The items are so successful that more than 50 prisons are making around 300 products, and all can be ordered via phone, online, or directly from prison offices.
