GLG Life Tech Corporation (NASDAQ: GLGL, TSX: GLG) (“GLG” or the “Company”), the vertically-integrated leader in the agricultural and commercial development of high quality stevia and all natural and zero calorie food and beverage products, recently conducted a tour of its key assets, operations and a recent product launch in China of AN0C for Investment Analysts and Investors.
Historically, GLG invites a select group of Analysts and Investors to visit their operations in China to tour the Company’s important assets and operations. The Company was joined this year by four investment analysts that currently cover the Company’s stock and several investors.
The tour began with a visit to Shanghai and the Company’s Head Office for China. Here, the group was part of a comparison sampling of their new line of beverage products. This was an opportunity to witness, first hand, the National launch of a new line of consumer beverage products developed and licensed under the “Dr Zhang” All Natural Zero Calorie (AN0C) brand that began distribution in March of this year. The group conducted in-store checks at large-box chains including Tesco, Carrefour and Walmart, along with numerous C-Stores and smaller independent grocery and corner store operations. To follow-up, the group visited the OEM bottling facility in Suzhou, one of five of their licensed facilities where the company has contracted them to execute the bottling and distribution of these consumer beverage products throughout China.
Later the group toured the Company’s facilities and its Chinese Partner’s manufacturing operations. This included a trip to their Runhai primary processing facility in Mingguang where the dried plant is converted to a raw stevia extract. From there the group travelled to their Chinese Partner’s (FXY) Xiaogang facilities where product R & D is conducted and package finished goods are produced. This includes AN0C beverages, tabletop sweeteners and other food and beverage products. Finally, the group visited the city of Qingdao where they visited the Runhao facility to see the final purification and refinement of stevia compounds that are separated and packed off into GLG’s finished products. These finished products are produced within a pharmaceutical grade clean room environment that is quality control rated to 100,000-degree classification.
The complete trip was photographed and can be viewed in Recent News on the company’s homepage titled: “GLG Analyst and Investor Tour 2011 Photos”.
