Sales of milk powder hit 5.6 billion yuan in 2011 as the company registered strong growth despite fierce competition from international dairy companies.

Several new factories across the country were put into operations in 2011, including a factory in Ningxia with annual capacity of 190,000 tons of liquid milk, and another in Zhejiang with daily production capacity of 250 tons of ice cream. 

The diary company revised its private placement plan, and now intends to raise up to five billion yuan from the issue of 310 million shares at not less than 16.34 yuan per share.

Funds raised will be used to expand its liquid milk, milk powder, ice cream and yogurt businesses.
