Tianyun International Holdings Limited (“Tianyun International”, together with its subsidiaries, the “Group”) (Stock Code: 6836.HK), a leading manufacturer of processed fruit products in the People’s Republic of China (“PRC”), today announced the successful acquisition of a parcel of land located in Honghe Prefecture of Yunnan Province, PRC. The land has an area of 130,000 square metres and is located in the Mile Green Food Processing Park. The total consideration is about RMB61.12 million.
As a key step of the Group’s development within the tropical climate zone in China, the Group plans to set up a production base (the “Yunnan Production Base Project”) to further expand its production capacity and sales potential, focusing on manufacturing tropical processed fruits and vegetables, and developing greater synergies with other Group production bases in order to enrich the variety of processed fruits produced and increase market coverage.
The Yunnan Production Base Project is located in the low-latitude plateau area of Yunnan’s Honghe Prefecture, which has a strong reputation as a “Natural Greenhouse” with its low-latitude, and produces a variety of characteristic fruits, including mangoes, pineapples, papaya, pomegranates, grapes and kiwis. With strong local government support, the green food and food processing industries situated there have shown rapid development in recent years. Yunnan Province shares its borders with three southeast Asian nations and has reliable access to PRC seaports, which allows it to cover the ASEAN region as well as source imported products conveniently.
The Yunnan Production Base Project is designed to produce a total of 90,000 tonnes of fruit-based products per annum, with the initial focus on the production and sales of canned fruit and vegetable, beverages, and fruit jelly products. A complex network of roads in Yunnan Province will provide our production base with stable links to Vietnam, Myanmar, Laos, and Thailand with two-way circulation of commodities. The Yunnan Production Base project with Wubei and Shandong Production Bases of the Group in the southwest, middle and northern parts of the PRC will also provide further synergies. The Group will establish a research centre, processing centre, grading centre, sales and trading centre, and storage and logistics center in the Yunnan Production Base Project.
Mr. Yang Ziyuan, Chairman and CEO of the Group, said; “We are pleased to have strategically acquired the land in Honghe Prefecture of Yunnan Province as it marks the official launch of the Yunnan Production Base Project. As a national high-tech enterprise, the Group adheres to promoting enterprise sustainability through innovation and technology, in order to build a high-quality green food brand and modern production base. Through the Yunnan Production Base Project, the Group will introduce unique agricultural products and purchase more fruit varieties from the tropical climate zone in order to further expand its business from the east and middle to the southwest parts of the PRC.
We are confident that when the Yunnan Production Base Project commences operation, the production capacity of the Group’s products will be increased significantly. The warehousing and logistics arrangement for the Group’s own brand products in the PRC will also be benefit with enhanced cost efficiency so that we are in a well position to provide customers with more diverse and richer processed fruit products and beverages, thereby achieving a more sustainable path for the Group.”
