With a time-honored brand of over 100 years in the dairy industry, Ausnutria now possesses ten modernized factories around the world, among which two are in China, five in the Netherlands, two in Australia, and one in New Zealand. Dedicated to the production of high-end milk powder and nutrition products, Ausnutria's factories were among the first to be granted the National Infant Formula Enterprise Production Permit in the PRC. Parts of its overseas factories were listed in the first series of registered overseas dairy product producers by PRC officials.
Changsha First Factory covers an area of 150mu (100,000 square meters), consisting of a GMP production line of 100,000 tons capacity, R&D buildings, laboratories, stereoscopic warehouses, and office buildings. The factory is equipped with advanced testing and product research capabilities.
The Changsha First Factory's production process passed the ISO9000, ISO14000, HACCP, Safety Production Standardization System, Integrity Management System, Dairy Product GMP Registration, and the review of SC Food Production. Having cleared these hurdles, Ausnutria Dairy (China) Co., Ltd. ("Ausnutria China") a wholly-owned subsidiary of Ausnutria, was designated as a High Technology Enterprise in Hunan Province.
Located in Changsha City, China, the Smart Factory is committed to building itself up as Ausnutria's signature factory. With an investment amount of RMB350mn, the factory covers an area of 50mu (33,000 square meters), consisting of a smart production line for infant and toddler formula, the smart warehouse, and the nutrition products technology center. At present, the factory has completed the trial-production successfully, and its annual production value is expected to reach RMB2.25bn with a designed annual capacity of 30,000tons.
At present, the Group has five factories with a total annual output of over 130,000tons in the Netherlands (located in Ommen, Kampen, Leeuwarden, and Heerenveen) all of which have obtained the production license in the Netherlands and succeeded in fulfilling the registration requirements of the Certification and Accreditation Administration of the PRC (the "CNCA").
Ommen Factory is among the first series of registered overseas dairy producers granted the approval to import dairy products into the PRC. The factory produces a variety of quality dairy ingredients, including (organic) cow milk powder, goat milk powder, and (organic) butter. Its production facilities include a milk-intake unit, an evaporator, and a drying tower for production purposes.
Kampen Factory is also among the first series of registered overseas dairy producers granted the approval to import dairy products to the PRC. The factory is equipped with a milk intake unit, two drying towers, and a modernized testing factory, where semi-manufactured powder for formula is produced before further processing. Besides quality infant and toddler formula, the factory's products also include superior milk-free products, such as a small variety of pre-mixes of vitamins and minerals.
Lypack Leeuwarden Factory produces the Group's infant goat milk formula Kabrita Yuebai, infant cow milk formula Hyproca Hollary, and organic infant cow milk formula Neolac.
The investment and construction of the two factories commenced in 2014 with an investment amount of approximately Euro113.2mn and a total designed annual capacity of 75,000tons. The factories passed the on-site examination of the Certification and Accreditation Administration of the PRC (the "CNCA") in November 2017 and commenced commercial production in January 2018. The Hector Factory mainly produces the Group's infant cow milk formulas Hyproca Hypure, Eurlate, and Eko Baby, while the Pluto Factory mainly produces the Group's infant goat milk formula Kabrita Youzhuang and infant cow milk formulas Allnutria and Myougood.
In order to further optimize Ausnutria's global supply chain, the Group acquired the high-end nutrition products brand Nutrition Care in 2016, along with ADP and Ozfarm in 2017, which are located in Australia.
The factory of Nutrition Care Pharmaceuticals Pty Ltd. ("NCP Factory") mainly produces Ausnutria's nutrition products under the high-end brand name of Nutrition Care. Having been certified for its production and processing qualifications by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) in Australia since 1998, the NCP Factory now prides itself on the double-recognition of both TGA and GMP under the strict standards of Australia. It is committed to providing consumers with comprehensive, high-quality, effective, and natural nutrition products.
Australian Dairy Park Pty Ltd. ("ADP") is a dairy enterprise with modernized processing and canning facilities. It produces the Group's infant cow milk formula Augoods, organic infant cow milk formula Extrapure, and products of Ozfarm, a high-end Australian brand. ADP's factory ("ADP Factory") is one of the first two Australian factories granted import licenses by the PRC government for infant milk formula products. At this time, ADP is one of only fifteen infant formula producers in Australia that fulfill the registration requirements of the CNCA.
In 2016, Ausnutria co-invested with Westland, the second largest dairy company in New Zealand, to establish a joint venture, Pure Nutrion Ltd., ("PNL") and a modernized and high-standard factory ("PNL Factory") located in Ralston, New Zealand. The total annual capacity of PNL Factory is expected to reach 30,000tons, which will fulfill its major task of supporting the Group's brand Puredo, an infant cow milk formula.
