ROCKY MOUNTAIN GINSENG, INC.'S SUBSIDIARY, ROCKY MOUNTAIN (FUZHOU) DRUG CO., LTD., ANNOUNCES MAJOR BUSINESS EXPANSION
August 20, 2001 Vancouver, Canada - Rocky Mountain Ginseng, Inc.'s (Pink Sheets: RMGS) Company President, Mr. Brian Hodge, announced today that the company is embarking on a 4 year, 1,000 retail store expansion program. It is expected that one-third of the stores will be company-owned. The company is actively seeking franchisees for the remaining two-thirds of the store expansion program.
Mr. Hodge stated that having a production facility and available nutritional supplements (known as healthy food products in China) combined with the right to establish company-owned stores and franchised stores anywhere in China has prompted the company to enter the retailing field in a major way. Profit margins are significantly higher and inventory financing is much lower than in wholesaling he said.
Establishment of a solid base of retail stores will provide a marketing network and enable the company to seek alliances with nutritional supplement manufacturers worldwide. With China's forthcoming entry into the WTO it will be easier for foreign companies to enter the Chinese market.
