Notes to Editors:

China Food Company, based in Shandong province in the People's Republic of China, a region with a population of circa 95 million, operates a group of well-established food manufacturing businesses producing a range of cooking and dipping sauces. China Food has a very strong brand for cooking and dipping sauces which are sold through a network of distributors and outlets of supermarket chains such as Tesco, Wal Mart, Carrefour and Jialejia in Shandong and surrounding provinces in Northern China. China Food is expected to benefit also from the growth of international supermarket chains in China. The Group recently launched 'Xaka', its premium soya sauce product, which has been well received by the market. 


The Chinese sauces, dressings and condiments market is growing significantly, driven by Chinese population growth and economic prosperity. The Chinese domestic market is rapidly expanding, and the Group is well positioned to benefit from China's demographic growth and increased urbanisation, having invested in a new factory which increases China Food's capacity to 50,000 tonnes of soya sauce using processes which comply with domestic and international manufacturing and food safety standards.  The Group's strategy is to become a leader in premium soya sauce in Northern China and to capitalise on the rapid growth in the increasingly discerning consumer market. 


The Group's operations are highly scalable and able to support further growth, and with net assets of £39 million (as at 31 December 2011), the prospects for China Food are strong.
