Zhongpin increases revenue in chilled pork unit
China-based meat processor Zhongpin Inc. announced on
Tuesday that its fourth quarter revenues rose considerably due to higher pork
For the quarter ended December 31, the company reported net income of USD5m,
or 17 cents per share, compared to a loss of USD1.5 million, or 7 cents per
share in same quarter a year previously, which was caused by a registration
penalty at the time.
Sales more than doubled to USD100.6m from USD47.7m in the fourth quarter of
2006. Market expansion and a rise in the price of pork products in China were
the factors contributing to the sales increase.

of the company's overall revenue in the quarter - more than doubled.
For the year, profit jumped to USD18.5m,or 80 cents per share, from USD4.1m,
or 20 cents per share in 2006.
