"With the high value of Gastrodia, we hope to broaden our product line, resulting in increased profits.”
Sichuan, PRC (PRWEB) May 11, 2011
China Health Resource, Inc. (OTCBB: CHRI), today announced that the company has entered into an exclusive agreement with a leading producer of Gastrodia in Pingwu, Sichuan. This agreement will give CHRI leverage in the Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) marketplace in China, as the main controlling distributor and supplier of Gastrodia (also known as Tianma), a traditional Chinese herb used to treat hypertension, improve circulation and resolve headaches.
Widely recognized for producing high-quality Angelica, CHRI is expanding its TCM offerings with a highly regarded and marketable TCM herb, commonly known as Tianma in China. Pure Gastrodia in Pingwu County of the Sichuan Province contains a high content of active ingredients, with low heavy metal content. Free of pollution and boasting high quality, the demand in the market for pure Gastrodia surpasses the supply in Pingwu County.
“Although Pingwu County is well-known for Gastrodia, the company is a rather small operation,” stated Jiayin Wang, CEO, China Health Resource, Inc. “As our company is widely known for producing high-quality Angelica, signing this Letter of Intent makes for a solid combination between a large enterprise and a high-quality product. With the high value of Gastrodia, we hope to broaden our product line, resulting in increased profits.”
Gastrodia currently retails for about 250~1,000 yuan/kg (US$38~150/kg) and is considered one of China’s highest priced TCM drugs available in the market. This exclusive arrangement for the supply of Gastrodia is expected to generate an estimated 120 million yuan (US$18 million) of revenue each year for CHRI.
