Jatcorp Board Chair, Dennis Shen, said, “We are excited to welcome Sunny to take the CEO position. He brings a wealth of experiences which are well aligned with Jatcorp and will be critical to the achievement of our growth strategy. We wish Sunny every success in this role and look forward to seeing Jatcorp flourish under his leadership.”
Jatcorp is known for producing supplementary food, plant-based products, and dairy items, including milk powder targeted at Asian markets. The unaudited figures for the September quarter indicated total revenue of $20.9 million, a remarkable 186% increase compared to the prior corresponding period, reflecting enhanced international trading and self-branded product sales.
The Company successfully concluded a $28 million production contract with BTNature by the end of the September quarter and announced a renewed contract targeting $30 million in production orders for 12 months from September.
The Moroka product achieved success on the China Tmall platform, ranking third in lactoferrin supplement sales by the end of September. Jatcorp expanded its market presence in Vietnam at a trade exhibition and received replenishment orders from a Taiwan client, expecting continuous growth.
