Nutrastar International Completes Multi-Year Production Expansion Project Bringing Cordyceps Capacity to 100 Tons
Company Now Better Positioned Meet Demand for Its Premium Branded Consumer Products
HARBIN, China, March 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Nutrastar International Inc. (OTCQB: NUIN; “Nutrastar” or the “Company”), a leading producer and supplier of premium branded consumer products, including commercially cultivated Cordyceps Militaris (“Cordyceps”), functional health beverages and organic and specialty foods, today announced that the Company completed its multi-year, multi-phase Cordyceps production expansion project, increasing capacity to 100 tons going forward, up 81.8% from 2010.
The expansion project was designed in August 2010 to grow capacity from 55 tons to over 100 tons over the next two and a half years to meet the company’s growing demand for its core Cordyceps product and functional health beverages. The first phase involved the renovation of 3 buildings in 2010, increasing production capacity to 72 tons by year-end. The second phase included the renovation of an additional 3 buildings, bringing production capacity to 87 tons by early 2012. The renovation of the final four buildings included in the project was completed in February 2013 and will go into production this year. In total, the Company renovated 10 buildings located on their existing production facility.
“We are thrilled to complete this final phase of our expansion project and it could not have come at a better time,” commented Ms. Lianyun Han, Chief Executive Officer of Nutrastar. “Nutrastar is fortunate that the demand for our cordyceps related products continues to grow. With added capacity, we are now better able to meet this demand and even further, grow our product portfolio to include other specialty consumer products that have been in development but were unable to be launched due to previous capacity constraints.”
