Wanshing Delegation

In June, 2017, a Memorandum of Understanding was signed between Asia-Pacific Group and Laiwu Wanshing Corporation, to develop new technologies and international market access.

Management has transformed the company over the past 15 years from a commodity grower to an advanced technology company.

One of the company’s leading products is ginger — all natural, organic products centered on dried ginger, ginger candies, fresh ginger, and pickled ginger. A key American partner is McCormick, for which it supplies several grades of ginger powder and dried ginger. Other international partners, in Europe and worldwide, include Nestle and Unilever.
