1. Description of Our Community
The factory of Mister Olive is located on a hill with dry weather and plenty of sunshine. The olive trees are planted on nearby steep slopes, whose drainage system is very appropriate for native Formosan olive growing. Yu Zong Xi, known as Mister Olive, established a olive production and marketing team with the great help of the local government and Farmer’s Association. Trying to develop more olive-related products, Mr. Yu converted his team into a innovative bio-tech industry and built a brand of local produces.
2. Summary of Our Project
Olives, the emerald fruit, are very common in our daily life. We eat preserved olives, we put sliced olives in spaghetti, and we spray olive oil on lettuce and tomatoes to make a delicious salad. But we have the slightest idea where the olives are grown, how they are processed, and by whom they are planted. In this project, we will visit an olive factory in Baoshan, Hsinchu County, to investigate this mysterious emerald fruit.

4. Problems We Had To Overcome
At first the team members could not reach an agreement in this project and even had some conflicts, which nearly worn out our enthusiasm for the thematic production. But with a much deeper discussion and communication, we finally came to a common consensus and made a great teamwork.
5. Our Project Sound Bite
Olive industry has a long history in Western civilization, while that in Taiwan has just begun to stretch its roots. In this thematic production we have a great opportunity to have better knowledge about the olive farming and its product manufacturing. And we realize that it really takes great efforts of many people to accomplish such a contributive yet undervalued industry.
6. How did your activities and research for this CyberFair Project support standards, required coursework and curriculum standards?
We have applied SWOT analysis, Porter five forces analysis, and risk analysis to the collected data. In this thematic production, we have fully enhanced our webpage design capacity, language logiccality, editing skills and team communication abilities.
