发布时间:2019-01-04 编辑:admin

JUNAN COUNTY, China, July 15 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- 千亿American Lorain Corporation (OTC Bulletin Board: ALRC) ("American Lorain" or the "Company"), an international processed foods company based in Shandong Province, People's Republic of China ("PRC"), today announced that the Company has reached an initial cooperative agreement with United States-based Well Luck Company, Inc. ("Well Luck" or the "Distributor") to introduce American Lorain's products to the United States.

Under the agreement, Well Luck will act as sales agent for American Lorain's chestnut and convenience food products. American Lorain's management visited Well Luck's facilities in New Jersey and discussed the details of the cooperative agreement in June 2009. The two parties later reached a preliminary agreement during the Fancy Food Show hosted by The National Association for the Specialty Food Trade's ("NASFT") in New York.

The partnership with Well Luck represents a milestone for American Lorain in its efforts to enter the North American market. Through the Distributor's nationwide distribution network in the United States, American Lorain plans to penetrate a new geographic market, increase sales, establish brand awareness, and gradually introduce other products to North American consumers. The Company will also utilize the opportunity to study the North American food and beverage industry and consumption habits in order to introduce products tailored to consumers in the United States.

Currently, Japan, Korea and Europe represent American Lorain's main export markets. Exports accounted for 30.9% of the Company's revenue in 2008.

"Penetrating the North American market has been a long-term goal of American Lorain, which we now are closer to achieving through this partnership with Well Luck," said Mr. Si Chen, CEO and Chairman of American Lorain. "Due to its large population of Asian origin, the United States represent a logical step in our expansion plan as we believe we can leverage our existing product portfolio to cater to this untapped market. As we increase our knowledge of the North American food and beverage market, we plan to develop more customized products in order to broaden our customer base. We look forward to providing high-quality food products to consumers in the United States."
