Media Release: Keytone Dairy China Export Licence Secured Until 2021
Keytone Dairy Corporation Ltd (ASX: KTD) (“Keytone Dairy” or “Company”) is pleased to announce that the Company’s China Certification and Accreditation Administration (CNCA) licence, a pre-requisite for importation of dairy products into the People’s Republic of China, is expected to remain effective, through to November 2021.
The CNCA is a highly coveted licence, which is not only a pre-requisite for importation of dairy products into China but is also Halal-certified, enabling exports into Muslim countries.
Since 2014, Keytone Dairy’s wholly-owned subsidiary Keytone Enterprises (NZ) Company Ltd has held a CNCA foreign manufacturer registration, enabling the Company to import into China a wide range of dairy products and dairy based formulations.
Bernard Kavanagh, Non-Executive Chairman of Keytone Dairy, and dairy industry veteran, said:
“China’s per capital dairy consumption is less than one third of the global average but rapidly growing. Keytone has been able to capitalise on this rapidly growing market with its clean, green and high quality dairy products.”
Keytone Dairy’s products are exported globally, including to China, for sale in a variety of channels, including major supermarket chains, premium retail channels and online marketplaces. Keytone Dairy’s customers and distribution channels include, New World, PAK’nSAVE, Countdown (Woolworths New Zealand subsidiary), Dairyworks New Zealand, Metro, Guangzhou Dept. & Friendship Store, HalsoKraft, JD.com, Tmall.com and VIP.com.
