CLAREMONT, CA--(Marketwired - Mar 6, 2017) - Kiwa Bio-Tech Products Group Corporation (OTC PINK: KWBT) ("Kiwa" or the "Company"), a Company focused on eco-friendly bio-based fertilizers promoting soil health, announced today that the Company has agreed to a strategic relationship with ETS (Tianjin) Biological Science and Technology Development Co., Ltd. ("ETS"). The partnership will include the deployment and strategic use of ETS biotechnology to produce bio-fertilizers for use in both China and internationally.
Kiwa and ETS, together with certain Chinese government departments, will work together to enhance China's microbial fertilizer industry standards and China's food safety industry chain standards. The parties will work together on the development of microbial technology and products in agriculture, environmental protection, soil management and other fields.
Relying on the Chinese Academy of Sciences, ETS Environmental and Agricultural Microbial Technology Research Center and biotechnology project research results, Kiwa has introduced the ETS core technology to complete bio-fertilizer upgrading, transformation and to develop new product lines.
In order to meet the growing global consumer demand to increase food supply and develop sustainable farming, we are applying sustainable use of biotechnology and the use of biotechnology products to replace chemical products, which will strengthen environmental protection and promote international cooperation. As a result of strict management of many agricultural chemicals, such chemicals will continue to be abandoned, resulting in a growing demand for bio-fertilizers.
It has been widely accepted that the application of ETS biotechnology facilitates agricultural sustainability and helps to protect the soil and improve grain output. The technology focuses on keeping soil healthy by restoring healthy microbes that are naturally present in healthy soils. As the technology gains worldwide recognition, it is imperative to popularize bio-fertilizer in developing countries to fulfill the needs of growing populations and promote environmentally friendly agriculture.
Through the cooperation of Kiwa and ETS, the parties aim to enhance the usage of the bio-fertilizers in China. The cooperation will bring technological transformation and support for Kiwa to improve its existing manufacturing techniques. Kiwa and ETS will also collaborate to establish a comprehensive platform for producing, supplying, and marketing in China. Ultimately, Kiwa would look to introduce these products to the international market, including the United States.
