A SINGAPORE INVESTOR, who was recently in Chengdu, spotted advertisments of Garden Fresh beverages at a subway station.

He also came across Garden Fresh drinks being sold at various foreign-owned supermarkets in Chengdu, which has a population of about 14 million and is the capital of Sichuan province. 

(Garden Fresh is the brand name of the beverages produced by Singapore-listed Sino Grandness).

Sino Grandness initially outsourced the productio of its Garden Fresh beverages, first introduced in 2010, to OEMs.

When sales reached a satisfactory level, Sino Grandness built a factory in Qionglai City, an hour's drive from Chengdu. It started operations in 2012.

Garden Fresh's second juice factory (which started operations in Oct 2014) is in Dang Yang City of Hubei, a three-hour drive from the provincial city of Wuhan.  

The third juice factory is under construction in Guzhen County (固镇县) of Anhui, which is a 3-hour drive from the provincial capital of Hefei.  

These three factories are to serve, respectively, the western, central and eastern regions of China.
