CondomsTaiwan’s biggest condom manufacturer, Taiwan Fuji Latex, recently opened a “model condom factory” for tourists in a bid to educate the public on condom production and contraceptives.

The factory, called “Condoms Discovery Center” opened to the public on August 22, 2013 in New Taipei City, Taiwan. The center showcases condom inflation tests, electronic pinhole inspection machines and a production line that controls condom quality. The factory-museum also allows visitors to “play games and watch videos related to condoms”.

Established in 1973, Taiwan Fuji Latex Company Ltd. played a major role in the Taiwanese government’s campaign for family planning during the population boom in the 1980s. It was the largest condom distributor to healthcare centers, pharmacies and local convenience stores, the company’s President Steven Yu said. However, the business was faced with a challenge when Taiwan’s birthrate dropped.

“Since the government changed its family control policy, our 40-year-old factory was about to move out of Taiwan two years ago. But the New Taipei City’s Economic Development Department helped us to keep our business in Taiwan by turning the factory into an innovative tourism spot, so we established the first condom tourism factory in Taiwan,” Yu said.

The factory was transformed into a museum for people to learn about how to use condoms in preventing venereal diseases, especially when these diseases are spreading among young people.

“We want to keep our roots in Taiwan and educate the young people about how to protect themselves and love their partner. This is our goal and responsibility,” Yu said.
