Oct 28, 2010

GUANGZHOU, China--()--Sino Agro Food, Inc. (Pink Sheet: SIAF), an emerging integrated, diversified agriculture technology and organic food company with subsidiaries operating in China, is pleased to announce QingHai, HuangYuan, SanJiang APower United Corporation Ltd., a joint venture project which Sino Agro Food, Inc. holds 45% equity ownership, is set to obtain 170 MU under “land usage rights” as well as additional grants.

Under policy initiatives set forward by the central government of the Peoples Republic of China, the district government of HuangYuan has agreed to provide SanJiang APower United full “land usage rights” to the property currently being used rent free at the project site. The land is valued at USD $5.112 million and will provide additional assets to the joint venture which can be used as collateral for loans through the Agricultural Bank of China.

The district government has also agreed to provide RMB 5 million to be used towards infrastructure improvements and development. Funding through this grant began September 15, 2010. In October, earlier this month, the project received a government sponsored evaluation report placing a RMB 24.5 million, or USD $3.7 million asset value on the improvements made so far on the property. This valuation report satisfied the required RMB 20 million development investment required by the government to transfer “land usage rights” to the project.

Currently, the joint venture project has submitted additional development grant requests for the construction of dairy houses, manufacturing facilities and laboratory for its cold weather enzyme. The Company anticipates making an announcement on these additional requests soon.
