Sino Agro Food, Inc. (SIAF) is a vertically integrated, fast growing and technology-focused Chinese agriculture firm whose subsidiaries build and operate beef, sheep, aquaculture and produce farms. It follows many organic principles, and aims to create products as naturally as possible. Managed by an experienced international team, the Company has operations in three provinces and sells throughout China.

SIAF's strategy is to work towards full vertical integration, from farm to plate, by expanding production and processing operations, while at the same time creating brands and restaurant outlets (via joint venture) for its products. The Company is currently active in aquaculture, cattle farming, livestock feed and fertilizer manufacture, produce farming and restaurant design and development. It is developing brand names in aquaculture and beef products, adding processing facilities, and is now involved in sheep farming. Though the Company sells throughout China, and even exports some of its products, its principal operations are in Guangdong Province, Qinghai Province and Hunan Province, as is shown in chart below.
The Company's agricultural projects generally begin with formation of a Sino Foreign Joint Venture Company (SFJVC) between one of its subsidiaries and a Chinese joint venture partner (or partners), with the SIAF subsidiary initially owning 25% of its equity. The Chinese partner acts as the project principal, initially owns 75% of the joint venture and usually contributes funding and land to the venture, while SIAF provides technology, construction and management services for a turnkey solution. The SIAF holding companies that undertake these projects are mainly located outside China, in Belize, Macau and Hong Kong, while the joint venture entities are Chinese companies. An important part of the development process is forming alliances with the farmer cooperatives that raise SIAF's cattle headcount requirements; SIAF provides them with infrastructure and education. Once a project is operational and profitable, SIAF typically increases its ownership in the joint venture from 25% to 75% and consolidates the project's operations into its financials.

The Company divides its fast growing operations into four standalone business units; fishery, cattle, HU flower plantation and fertilizer, enzymes and livestock feed. The commonality between the divisions is that each is operating in a comparatively slow growth consolidating market; SIAF has a strategy of targeting niches of these markets with their high quality products. The Company has described its strategy as wanting to be the highest quality with high margins, but not the largest firm.

In P.R.C. the rapid progress of industrialization of the last decade has unbalanced the needs of developments and activities of the agriculture industry, (i.e. diminishing of agriculture land, scarcity of farm laborers, industrial pollution and the generally over usage of chemical etc.). Therefore the P.R.C. Government has in recent years directed many incentive schemes and policies with the aim to revitalize and to modernize its agriculture industry. (i.e. Protection of agriculture land, stringent laws in governing the ownership and usage of agriculture land, tax free incentive applying to incomes generated from the industry and enforcing environmental friendly developments etc.)Management of the Company has many years of practical and professional experience in various and many sectors of the agriculture industry and decided in year 2004 that it was the right timing and there would be many opportunities available to develop agricultural ventures in P.R.C.
