Yangling, Shaanxi— (December 12, 2018)––Kiwa Bio-Tech Products Group Corp. (OTCQB: KWBT) (“Kiwa Bio-Tech” or “the Company”), an emerging agricultural company that develops, manufactures and sells bio-fertilizers is pleased to announce that the Company’s Trinity Agricultural Marketing Model (Trinity) was formally implemented in Zhouzhi County, Shaanxi Province.
Kiwa’s representative Ms. Sun, Director of Fertilizer Division, and Ms. Dongxia Ren, the Board Chairman of Zhouzhi County Farm Tourism Fruits & Vegetables Specialty Cooperative (the Cooperative), signed a cooperation agreement on eco-friendly kiwi planting, which marked the implementation of the Zhouzhi Project. The agreement clarified the relevant rules for the implementation of the Company’s Trinity Agricultural Marketing Model (Retail Outlet Center——Patented Bio-fertilizer——Safe Produce Distribution) in the 5,000 mu (approximately 333 hectare) Kiwi Planting Park of the Cooperative.

The kiwi plant in Zhouzhi County is the largest kiwi production park in China with a very long history. Until now, the kiwi industry is an important pillar industry for Zhouzhi County’s economic development; it’s about 430,000 mu (approximately 28,667 hectare), and the output value of kiwi is more than RMB 4 billion (approximately 580,000,000 USD annually), accounting for more than 70% of the County’s GDP.
However, due to the excessive application of chemical fertilizers and pesticides in recent years, the quality of kiwi has declined, which has led to a negative impact on the sales and brand reputation of the Kiwi market in Zhouzhi County. Because of this situation, the government of Zhouzhi County has paid more attention to it and has sought ways to improve the quality of kiwi.
Kiwa Bio-Tech has built the Trinity Agricultural Marketing Model for a high-quality agricultural product planting park by establishing their Retail Outlet Center, adopting a unified standard for agricultural products, providing an eco-friendly standardized planting plan, introducing financial institutions for financial support, and implementing whole-process with technical services. The implementation of Trinity Agricultural Marketing Model is designed to greatly promote the healthy development of the agricultural industry in Zhouzhi County.
The reason Kiwa is cooperating with the Cooperative is to benefit from three advantages:
- In 2018, Kiwa succeeded in the harmless planting test of the Cooperative’s 300 mu kiwi demonstration base;
- Kiwa has established close cooperation with mainstream produce sales channels,such as Huaguoshan;
- On the basis of establishing the Retail Outlet Center, Kiwa has integrated resources such as “insurance, eco-friendly planting plan, contract farmingand financial support”, which meets the expectations of the government of Zhouzhi County and the development needs of the kiwi industry.
It is agreed in the cooperation agreement that when the Cooperative implements Kiwa’s eco-friendly planting plan, if there is a loan demand, Kiwa will provide financial institutions and bear unlimited joint and several liabilities for these financing activities. The Cooperative has 4,000 mu (approximately 267 hectare) of kiwi planting that needs loan support. In the process of cooperation, Kiwa Bio-Tech will provide a financial guarantee on the standard of 2,750 yuan / mu ($398 USD/ mu) to the Cooperative, with the total amount of loans being RMB 11 million (approximately $1,600,000 USD).
Furthermore, Kiwa will cooperate with the Professional Farmers Association of Zhouzhi County and select qualified fruit farmers to join the Zhouzhi Project. According to the plan, the first phase of Zhouzhi Project promotion target is 30,000 mu (2,000 hectare).
Ms. Wang, Kiwa’s CEO, stated, “It’s a good start for the Company’s Trinity Agricultural Marketing Model (Trinity) implemented in Zhouzhi County, and we strongly believe that once this great program in Shannxi Province is implemented, Kiwa Bio-Tech will expanded quickly throughout the Country of China.”
