2016/11/28     Source:

1. Introduction to the Project

1.1 Project Construction Background

1.1.1 Product Introduction

Quinoa, originally produced in Andes, South America, has a planting history of more than 5000 years. Quinoa is the good-quality high-protein alkaline food, with the low sugar and low fat, containing no gluten, with the high meal fiber, rich in multiple amino acids, unsaturated fat acid, vitamin B and Vitamin E as well as minerals.

Quinoa is characterized as easy cooking and digestion and good taste; plays the roles of resupplying nutrients and strengthening the immunity; adjusts the internal secretion, resists cancer, reduces the weight and prevents diseases; it is applicable to all groups of people, especially those physically weak persons. Quinoa not only contains the rich nutrients needed by a human being but also has the good-quality protein similar to the amino acid compositions of a human body. It can reduce the input of the breeding industry in the feedstuff, sheds and human labor, the occupation of the farmland by the farm, the environmental pollution by the animal discharges and influences of the diseases carried by the livestock and animals on the human health. It plays the irreplaceable roles in the food safety, food nutrition and even rural area, agriculture and farmer problems. It is one of the crops with the greatest potential.

1.1.2 Market Analysis

(1) Analysis of the present situation of the market 

Now, the planting and distribution of quinoa is centralized in the world. It is mainly planted in Andes, South America, which is also the place of origin of quinoa. In addition to South America, the commercial planting and relevant research has also been started in the US, Canada, France, Australia and China.

According to the incomplete statistics, the quinoa planting area of quinoa in South America is 1 million hectares, but the output is only 70000 tons. Therefore, the output is low. It is in the state of planting in a large area but low harvest in most of the high-altitude mountainous regions. Generally speaking, the quality is good but the output is low.

(2) Forecasting of market prospect

According to the current situation of low output of quinoa, the output can reach 500kg/mu in the foreign countries after the optimization test, so quinoa, like rice or wheat, has the potential of fertility. Our current test output can reach 400kg, but the output in the big farmland is not more than 500jin. As one of the staple food containing no gluten, which can replace rice or wheat, especially as the all-protein food, quinoa, as the staple food or functional food, has the broad development prospect.

Quinoa is one of the top 10 nutrients especially recommended by the UN Food and Agriculture Organization in the world. At present, the sales price in the international market is about 10USD/jin and the sales price in the domestic online shop is 86 yuan/jin, so the market prospect is really broad. Quinoa can be also developed into a new food industry. Because it contains various nutrients, there have been various quinoa deep-processed products in the international market, for example, some major companies such as Nestle and Babynat, etc. have their own children’s quinoa food, quinoa beverage, quinoa vodka, quinoa noodle and quinoa snacks, which are not rarea in the international market. Therefore, quinoa can be established into a rising industry and the industrial chain can be extended unlimitedly.

The foundation for the project construction is the successful test planting of quinoa in Jilin. This marks that the organic quinoa can be planted and processed in a large scale and the subsequent matching industrial construction can be carried out in Jilin.

1.1.3 Technical Analysis

The production equipment with the reliable quality and matching capabilities are chosen for the project construction. The stable process, energy conservation, environmental-protection technology and correct technical route are taken in the production. The deep-freezing process is scientific, rational and feasible.

1.1.4 Advantageous Conditions of Project Construction

(1) Policy conditions

Jilin (China-Singapore) Food Zone encourages the pilot development in some aspects such as system, mechanism, science and technology, etc., gives the support of policies, taxation and funds, etc. and provides the strong policy support for the enterprise entering the zone.

(2) Technical advantages

At present, more than 98% of the quinoa consumed in the world comes from South America and a little quinoa is planted in the US and Canada in North America and the test planting of quinoa in a lot of other countries is not ideal.

The domestic quinoa planting scale is small, it is only popularized and planted in some regions such as Shanxi and Qinghai and most of the processing enterprises depend on the producing area, with the small production scale.

In recent years, the test planting of quinoa in Jilin City has been successful, so the material source can be provided for the development of the quinoa industry in the local area.

(3) Personnel advantages

The project zone neighbors Jilin City and Changchun City where there are about 20 agricultural colleges and universities, about 30 national and provincial agricultural scientific research institutes such as Institute of Special Products of the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Science, providing the agricultural scientific and technological support for the enterprises in the food zone.

(4) Location advantages

The fundamental construction of Jilin (China-Singapore) Food Zone has been completed, the “connection of 7 aspects and 1 leveling” has been achieved, some facilities of water, power, heating and communication, etc. can be provided via the complete and matching public engineering pipelines of the zone, the basic conditions of the project are assured and there is the developed transport on the factory site.

The core zone is located between Changchun City, the capital city of Jilin Province and Jilin City, the second largest city of Jilin Province, with the planned area of 57km2, including the construction land of 36km2. The emphasis goes to build 6 major functional districts, that is, food processing district, storage and logistic district, modern commercial residential district, scientific research service district, leisure and holiday district and ecological protection district, etc.

1.2 Content and Scale of Project Construction

1.2.1 Product Scale

Build the quinoa processing workshop: annual processing of 10000 tons of quinoa, producing a series of products such as quinoa protomere, quinoa meal, quinoa powder, quinoa pastries and quinoa wine, etc.

Develop the quinoa planting base: according to the order agriculture, build the quinoa breeding and planting base to develop the quinoa planting area of 20000mu.  

1.2.2 Construction contents:

The project construction land is 20000m2. The quinoa processing production line and matching works will be built. The project includes the production workshop building, refrigerating warehouse, material warehouse, finished products warehouse, comprehensive office building, guard’s room and relevant public works, etc.
