Zhongpin resumes pork production in Sichuan
Zhongpin, a leading meat and food processing
company in the People's Republic of China ("PRC"), today announced that it
resumed production at the Deyang plant, located in Cangshan County, Sichuan
Province, which was affected by a recent earthquake.
The facility has resumed 80% of prior-earthquake
utilization level. During the recovery period, Zhongpin continued supply to
customers under contract with the Deyang plant using its production facility in
Zhumadian, Henan Province.
On May 12, 2008, Zhongpin's processing
facility in Deyang, Sichuan Province was adversely impacted by an earthquake.
Water and electricity supplies were cut off during the earthquake and resumed on
the morning of May 14, 2008. There was no loss of life at the plant, but there
was some damage to workshops and equipment at the facility. The Deyang plant has
annual capacity of 45,000 metric tons, accounting for 12.5% of Zhongpin's total
capacity of chilled and frozen pork.
