LISHUI, China, May 26, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Farmmi, Inc. ("Farmmi" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: FAMI), an agricultural products supplier in China, announced today it has become a member of the influential National Restaurant Association (the "Association").
Founded in 1919 and headquartered in Washington, D.C., the National Restaurant Association is the leading business association for the restaurant industry, which comprises nearly 1 million restaurant and foodservice outlets and a workforce of 14.5 million employees. Together with 52 State Associations, the National Restaurant Association is a network of professional organizations dedicated to serving every restaurant through advocacy, education, and food safety. The Association sponsors the industry's largest trade show the National Restaurant Association Show, leads the food safety training and certification program ServSafe and the unique career-building high school program the NRAEF's ProStart.
Ms. Yefang Zhang, Farmmi's Chairwoman and CEO, commented, "We are very excited to become a member of the powerful National Restaurant Association. We are one of the few members with major operations in China and this adds another tool to our toolbox, and gives us even higher market credibility. The synergies with our business are incredibly compelling, with restaurants and foodservice outlets in the U.S. seeking high quality agriculture products. As a new member, Farmmi's products will now be even more accessible and we will have much wider market opportunities. We expect to dramatically multiply the number of qualified potential customers we have access to, including active buyers of organic food stuffs and ingredients by export to the U.S. Our team is already engaged and just spent 3 days at the 2022 National Restaurant Association trade show, which is known for bringing together more restaurant and hospitality buyers and equipment manufacturers than any other industry event."
"In addition, as part of our long-term strategy, we are committed to helping thousands of famers in China to improve their practices, including the reduction of pesticides, in order to improve consumer health and the planet. We will do this by working alongside famers to implement protocols and to produce according to the U.S. FDA's most stringent food quality standards so that U.S.-based restaurants will accept their food supplies. We are also considering building out production in the U.S. where there are competitive advantages in agriculture production and in marketing to other National Restaurant Association members. There are a lot of opportunities in front of us and we are already talking with potential supply partners in the U.S. and Canada."
