Huifeng Bio-Pharmaceutical Technology Inc. (“Huifeng”) develops, produces and sells plant extracts, pharmaceuticals and pharmaceutical raw materials in mainland China and internationally. Founded in 2000, the Company holds the patent for a highly efficient process to extract rutin, one of a class of plant-derived chemicals called flavonoids, with anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and anticoagulant properties. Other flavonoid or flavonoid-derived Huifeng products include troxerutin, quercetin, ginkgo biloba, diosmin and l-rhamnose. Manufacturers buy these products for use as the building blocks of drugs, dietary supplements and as additives in functional foods and beverages.
The Company’s production facilities are ISO9001:2000 certified, a necessary international qualification for export sales. The Company also holds a Chinese Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) certification that allows it to distribute domestically. Products manufactured under GMP conditions have higher quality, consistency and potency assurances. Huifeng’s participation in PRC government biopharmaceutical industry initiatives entitles them to obtain funding to research new products.
Huifeng’s production efficiency has allowed them to become the dominant Chinese producer and exporter of rutin and to develop related products. In 2005, internal R&D efforts produced efficient methods of extracting diosmin and L-rhamnose, and they have recently expanded production facilities to manufacture these new products.
Huifeng has a diverse customer base, including distributors and manufacturers in China, Japan, Hong Kong, Russia, India, Germany, and the U.S. In the first 9 months of 2006, approximately 60% of products were sold in China and 40% were exported.
