The Company is focused on developing, producing and distributing higher margin agricultural products to meet the increasing demands from China's emerging middle class consumers for wholesome, trustworthy, higher quality, and gourmet or medicinal food items. We specialize in producing the highest quality beef and seafood, and high value produce.
A holding company, SIAF's Group Corporate Structure is organized as follows:
As the chart illustrates, Sino Agro Food holds equity stakes in a cohesive portfolio of companies SIAF forms according to its strategic mission to produce, distribute, and market natural, sustainable protein food and produce, primarily seafood and cattle to the rapidly growing middle class in China.
SIAF provides financial oversight and strategic direction for each company’s operations, and for the inter-operation between them, stressing vertical integration between the pre-wholesale, wholesale, distribution, and retail levels of the Company’s subsidiary food chain.
These companies are joint ventures managed at an operations level by joint venture partners. SIAF intends to IPO subsidiaries when they reach viability for the public markets.
After successfully developing many aquaculture fishery farms and cattle farms and related business developments (in addition to sales and marketing of produce and products) in Australia and Malaysia since 1998, SIAF's management team introduced our business activities in China in 2006. We are an engineering consulting company that specializes in building and operating agriculture and aquaculture farms.
To accomplish this, we utilize our expertise and know how in specific agriculture and aquaculture technologies. Our “A Power Re-circulating Aquaculture System” is a patented and proven technology for indoor fish farming. We’ve developed modern techniques and technologies to grow, feed and house both fish and cattle. These are engineered into the designs of, and the management systems for, indoor and outdoor fishery and cattle farms. Our experience managing crops, and employing technologies (including hydroponic) to work within climate and growing conditions optimizes the production of organic, green and natural agricultural produce.
In all of these developments we have acted as the master engineer, pioneering the construction and building of farms, from raw land into fully operational facilities. We complete the construction and building of infrastructure including staff quarters, offices, processing facilities, storage, and all related production facilities. Our management teams are responsible for developing all business activities into effective and efficient operations.
In just a few years, SIAF has matured into a company dedicated to the agriculture and aquaculture industry in China. We currently maintain operation of our HU Plantation as well as our services in engineering consulting, specializing in the development of two major products; namely, meat derived from the rearing of beef cattle and seafood derived from the growth of fish, prawns, eel and other marine species.
All with niche markets, revenues are generated from activities that we divide into five stand alone business divisions or units: (1) Fishery, (2) Cattle, (3) Organic Fertilizer, (4) HU Plantation and (5) Marketing and Trading.
This fifth and newest division, “Marketing and Trading” represents our strongest push to vertically integrate the Company operations, furthering the Company’s overall “farm to plate” concept.
