Ontario, CA— (August 20, 2018)––Kiwa Bio-Tech Products Group Corp. (OTCQB: KWBT) (“Kiwa Bio-Tech” or “the Company”), a leading agricultural biotechnology company that develops and manufactures microbial fertilizers for use in the multi-billion agricultural industry announced that the Company has inaugurated its new state-of-the-art research center related to its rapidly expanding microbial fertilizer business in China.
The purpose of establishing the new Kiwa-Yangling Ecological Agriculture and Environment Research Center (“Kiwa R&D Center”) is to create a headquarters for conducting original research on microbial fertilizers and to make innovative advances in its KETS core technology and support Kiwa Bio-Tech’s strategy of opening new agricultural planting markets and safeguarding the Company’s leading position in the soil restoration industry.
“Research is at the center of everything we do. We reinvest 12% of our revenue annually in new innovation and continue to upgrade our soil-smart technology. The Kiwa R & D Center will also accept government subsidies to support its agricultural research. With sufficient financial support, our innovation pipeline could redefine the industry,” stated Kiwa Bio-Tech’s CEO Ms. Wang.
The new Kiwa R&D Center is located in the only High-Tech Agricultural Free Trade Zone in Yangling, Shaanxi Province. This location will give Kiwa Bio-Tech access to one of the largest agricultural industry clusters in China. With these geo-advantages and cluster competitive advantages, the Kiwa R&D Center has already established a Research and Innovation Division, Laboratories, an International Cooperation Division, a Data and Information Division and Personnel Training Division.
“The agricultural industry in China has historically faced a lack of industrial standards for bio-fertilizers, which has resulted in a low level of biotechnology advancement and achievement and severe agricultural pollution. The Company’s research and development begins with a thorough understanding of the necessities for transforming agricultural research achievements, bridging between biotechnologies and market demands, developing eco-friendly agricultural standards and alleviating the soil pollution caused by the use of chemical fertilizers,” added Ms. Wang.
We see the Kiwa R & D Center playing a role in fostering dynamic collaboration between academia and the agricultural industry to enhance the knowledge and understanding of eco-friendly agriculture to address far-reaching challenges. The Kiwa R&D Center cooperates with Northwest Agriculture and Forestry University, China Agricultural University, Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences, Northwest University, Harbin Technology Institute, Research Institute of Tsinghua University and several other prestigious universities.
The Company has appointed Dr. Yanan Tong as the first president of the Kiwa R & D Center. Dr. Tong received his Ph.D. from Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences. His research direction includes fertilizer use and environment, agricultural environmental protection, and soil sciences. Dr. Tong has served as the Secretary-General of the UK-China Sustainable Agriculture Innovation Network to promote agricultural cooperation and food security in the United Kingdom and China.
