Chinese Meat Processor Zhongpin Expands Capacity by 114%

Zhongpin, a major Chinese exporter of meat and food products, has commenced production at its new meat facility in Changge City, Henan Province — increasing its annual production capacity for prepared meat products by 114%.

Zhongpin began construction of the new prepared meat facility in the first quarter of 2008 with an investment of approximately USD13.2 million. The new facility is located at the company's main production base, Zhongpin Industrial Park, and has an annual prepared meat-production capacity of 28,800 metric tons. The new facility will increase Zhongpin's total annual prepared meat production capacity to 54,000 metric tons from the current 25,200 metric tons. The company's prepared meat products include a variety of popular sausages and ham. Traditionally, prepared meat facilities have longer ramp-up periods compared to the frozen and chilled pork facilities. Zhongpin expects the new facility to achieve an over 80% utilization rate by the second quarter of 2009.

Zhongpin is a Chinese meat and food processing company that specializes in pork and pork products, and fruit and vegetables. Its distribution network in China spans more than 24 provinces and includes over 2,960 retail outlets. Zhongpin's export markets include the European Union, Eastern Europe, Russia, Hong Kong, Japan, and South Korea.
