A track record of success
Established in 1988 and listed on the Main Board of the Singapore Exchange Securities Trading Limited in February 2006, Luzhou Bio-chem Technology Limited ("Luzhou") is a leading corn refiner and one of the largest producers of maltose-related products and other corn sweeteners in the People's Republic of China ("PRC").
Large production capacity
Luzhou has strategically increased its production capacity by 60% since 2006, and currently maintains a total production capacity of 1,040,000 tonnes per annum through six production facilities in the PRC. These include two production facilities in Yishui, Shandong Province, and one each in Fushun, Liaoning Province, Xingping, Shaanxi Province, Xiping, Henan Province and Pengshan, Sichuan Province. These facilities operate with their own water resources and several also have their own power generating capabilities. With one exception, all of them straddle key corn producing provinces in the PRC to ensure easy access to ample and competitively priced raw materials. Luzhou has also expanded its range of higher value-added products to include sugar alcohol, corn oil, amino acids and high fructose corn syrup 55.

These products are used by its domestic and overseas customers as additives or ingredients in the manufacture of their own products.
