2011-07-27 19:01 876

DAQING, China, July 27, 2011 /PRNewswire-Asia-FirstCall/ -- China Nutrifruit Group Limited (NYSE Amex: CNGL) ("China Nutrifruit" or "the Company"), a leading producer of premium specialty fruit based products in China ("PRC"), today announced that the Company commenced its fiscal year 2012 production operations on July 25, 2011.

China Nutrifruit's production season typically spans from mid July to mid November each year. The Company engages in selling, product distribution activities and research and development initiatives throughout the year to monitor market demand and changes in consumer tastes. During the fiscal year 2012 production season, the Company will introduce a series of new products, including fruit and vegetable powder products, concentrate paste products, cherry tomato glazed fruit products and golden berry dried fruit products, through its well-established nation-wide distribution network.

"Our fiscal year 2012 production season marks an important milestone as with the launch of our new fruit and vegetable powder products and new concentrate paste products, we will extend the production period for our powder products beyond our typical harvest season. This is mainly because we can utilize our concentrate paste products as raw materials for production of our fruit and vegetable powder products and therefore extend our production season. We believe this will have a positive impact on our revenue growth, resource efficiency and profitability," commented Mr. Changjun Yu, Chairman and CEO of China Nutrifruit.

"In addition, we have completed technological upgrades to our glazed fruit production lines in Daqing and completed installation of additional processing equipment at our concentrate juice production lines in Mudanjiang, increasing our annual concentrate juice production capacity by 50% to reach 9,000 tons. Such upgrades will result in improved operational efficiency and higher productivity, while expanding our product portfolio as we begin production of our new cherry tomato glazed fruit products and golden berry dried fruit products. We expect the technological upgrades combined with the new product introductions to favorably contribute to our fiscal year 2012 results and are confident in our ability to achieve our projected revenue of approximately $110 million to $113 million and net income of approximately $29 million to $30 million in fiscal year 2012."
