Sino Agro Food, Inc. to Apply for OTCBB Quotation; Company Information to be Available Through Standard & Poor’s Market Access Program

Oct 31, 2011

GUANGZHOU, China--()--Sino Agro Food, Inc. (OTCQB: SIAF.PK), an emerging integrated, diversified agriculture technology and organic food company with principal operations located throughout the Peoples Republic China, is pleased to announce that the Company has taken steps to apply for quotation on the Over the Counter Bulletin Board (“OTCBB”). In addition, the Company has enrolled in Standard and Poor's (“S&P”) prestigious Market Access Program and Stock Report Coverage and Compliance Program, in an effort to increase communications with the investment community.

The Company is currently in talks to secure sponsorship to seek quotation on the OTCBB. The OTCBB is an SEC and FINRA regulated quotation service that displays real-time quotes, last-sale prices, and volume information in over-the-counter (OTC) equity securities. Generally, all issuers that quote on the OTCBB must be SEC registered Exchange Act reporting issuers. An OTC equity security generally is any equity that is not listed or traded on NASDAQ® or a national securities exchange. OTCBB securities include national, regional, and foreign equity issues, warrants, units, American Depositary Receipts (ADRs), and Direct Participation Programs (DPPs).

The Company has also applied for S&P’s Market Access Program and Stock Report Coverage and Compliance Program, an information distribution service that enables subscribing publicly traded companies to have their company information disseminated to users of Standard & Poor's Advisor Insight. The company information to be made available through this program includes share price, volume, dividends, shares outstanding, company financial position, and earnings. Standard & Poor's Advisor Insight is an Internet-based research engine used by more than 100,000 investment advisors. A public version of the site is available at http://www.marketscope.com.

In addition, information about companies in Standard & Poor's Market Access Program will be available via S&P's Stock Guide database, which is distributed electronically to virtually all major quote vendors. As part of the program, a full description of Sino Agro Food, Inc. will also be published in the Daily News section of Standard Corporation Records, a recognized securities manual for secondary trading in approximately 38 states under the Blue Sky Laws.

Mr. Solomon Lee, Chief Executive Officer of the Company, stated, "These recent company developments and corporate actions are part of our ongoing efforts of increasing Company transparency and increasing our access to the investment community. Once quoted on the OTCBB, we will commence moving forward on corporate actions to increase investor awareness as well as begin taking the necessary actions to apply for listing on a more senior exchange."

The Company has filed an updated Corporate presentation with the SEC at http://www.sec.gov/Archives/edgar/data/1488419/000114420411055719/v236222_ex99-2.htm
