Tianli Agritech Signs Contract With Leading Wuhan Supermarket Chain





WUHAN CITY, China, May 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Tianli Agritech, Inc. (NASDAQ:OINK) ("Tianli" or the "Company"), a leading producer of breeder hogs, market hogs, and black hogs, headquartered in Wuhan City, China, today announced that the company had signed an agreement with Zhongbai Warehouse Supermarket Co., Ltd. ("ZHONGBAI") to sell cuts of its Tianli-Xiduhei™ black hog meat through five of ZHONGBAI's warehouse outlets in Wuhan, Hubei province.

Established in 1997, ZHONGBAI is a wholly owned subsidiary of Zhongbai Holding Group Co. Ltd. (ticker: 000759.SZ) ("Zhongbai Holding"), a leading supermarket chain in the Wuhan metropolitan area. According to its latest Annual Report, Zhongbai Holding had 244 warehouses, 651 convenience stores, 5 department stores, and 45 consumer electronics stores at the end of 2012. Net sales of Zhongbai Holding totaled RMB 15.7 billion in 2012, of which ZHONGBAI contributed approximately RMB 11.2 billion.

Mrs. Hanying Li, Chairwoman and CEO of Tianli Agritech commented, "We are very excited to see cuts of our branded black hog meat gain traction in the Wuhan market following our recent entry into the Beijing market. This marks an important milestone for our retail channel buildout effort and could potentially open the door for us to gain broader access to Zhongbai Holding's network of stores. As we are committed to expand our reach in the Wuhan market and explore other geographic markets, we expect retail sales of our black hog products to generate meaningful revenue and earnings in coming quarters."

Tianli's black hogs and Tianli-Xiduhei™ meat cuts are products of the Company's "10,000 families and 1,000,000 Black Hogs" program in Enshi Prefecture, Hubei Province. By March 31, 2013, the Company had provided funds totaling $12.67 million and completed the construction of 765 black hog farms in Enshi Prefecture.
