Sep 26, 2016

GUANGZHOU, China-- Sino Agro Food, Inc. (OTCQX: SIAF | OSE: SIAF-ME), an agriculture technology and natural food company that produces and sells protein food including seafood and cattle, today announced that it has retained KCSA Strategic Communications, a leading New York-based communications firm, to lead the Company's investor relations program.

Sino Agro Food, Inc.

KCSA intends to deploy a comprehensive investor relations campaign designed to increase awareness of Sino Agro Food among the investment community through a comprehensive shareholder communications strategy. KCSA’s objectives include, among others, increased reporting on the Company’s strategic milestones and the hosting of institutional investor roadshows. Since KCSA’s inception over forty years ago, the firm has developed a strong reputation for its work representing public companies. Todd Fromer, Managing Partner of KCSA, will lead the KCSA team and provide strategic counsel on financial communication matters.

"We are excited to begin working with KCSA Strategic Communications to enhance our shareholder communications program and generate greater investor awareness for Sino Agro Food as we enter an inflection point in the Company’s development," said Solomon Lee, Sino Agro Food’s Founder, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "We are currently implementing a multi-pronged long term strategy to maximize shareholder value, including the restructuring and carve-out of our fast-growth aquaculture business segment into a stand-alone entity, and the carve-out of our beef operations segment. We believe this strategic plan will enable each of our business segments to realize their true value, thereby maximizing shareholder returns for our U.S., Nordic and Asia-Pacific investors. KCSA has decades of experience advising fast-growing public companies on how to optimize the impact of strategic milestones as they progress through their growth strategies; we are confident that working with them to maximize our exposure to Wall Street at this time will be greatly advantageous during this process.”

Todd Fromer, Managing Partner of KCSA Strategic Communications, commented, “With its ongoing construction of the world’s largest recirculating aquaculture (farm) system (“RAS”), its shift toward offering higher-margin, premium quality food items, and with an established track record, Sino Agro Food is extremely well-positioned to address the ramp-up in demand for seafood and beef occurring in China. We are pleased to implement a communications plan based on best practices to provide strategic counsel to Sino Agro Food and help the Company tell its story clearly and effectively to both existing and potential shareholders as it executes on its strategic plan.”
