For full-year 2010, total revenue increased to $947 million, surging 30% from 2009 on increased sales in its meat and meat products segment, attributable to Zhongpin gaining traction in other geographies, expansion of the retail store network and improved sales to food service distributors in China.

Net income increased to $58.3 million in 2010 from $45.6 million in 2009. Net profit margin dropped to 6.2% in 2010 from 6.3% in 2009 as Zhongpin could not pass on to customers higher hog prices.
