The JV company is set up for the purpose of building a central kitchen in Langfang, Hebei, China. Its primary business is in food manufacturing, food processing and sale of food products.

The two parties will each inject 30 per cent of their respective subscribed capital within 10 business days after the JV company’s bank accounts are opened. The balance 70 per cent will be injected within two years of incorporating the JV company.

SATS and Wilmar intend to draw on internal resources to fund their shares of the JV company investment.
