Founded in April 1993, the company has a registered capital of 65 million RMB and covers an area of 200 acres. With a workforce of 400 employees, it is a key leading enterprise in agricultural industrialization at the provincial level. Jiatian Agricultural Development Co., Ltd. is engaged in scientific research, mushroom seed cultivation, factory cultivation of edible mushrooms, and sales.
The company specializes in the production of Pleurotus eryngii (also known as King Oyster mushroom) and its products are exported to various countries in Southeast Asia, Europe, Canada, and the United States, as well as major domestic markets such as Beijing, Shanghai, Jiangsu, Zhejiang, and Guangdong. Currently, the company possesses three domestic production lines with the largest scale of bottle cultivation of Pleurotus eryngii. It has a daily production capacity of 210,000 bottles and produces 50 tons of high-quality Pleurotus eryngii mushrooms per day, with an annual sales revenue of 150 million RMB.
The company is currently expanding its facilities with the construction of the fourth phase. Once completed, it is expected to achieve an annual production of 27,000 tons of fresh Pleurotus eryngii mushrooms, with an output value of 280 million RMB. Jiatian Agricultural Development Co., Ltd. has successfully overcome the technological bottlenecks in the automated production of bottle-cultivated Pleurotus eryngii mushrooms and is at the forefront of production technology nationwide.
Over the years, the company has leveraged its advantages in assets, technology, equipment, production and operation, enterprise management, and technical talents as a leading enterprise, establishing a strong core competitiveness. It has built a positive corporate image within the industry and strives to become a symbol of the edible mushroom industry, not only in Fujian Province but also across the entire industry.
With daily deliveries of 210,000 bottles, Jiatian has become one of the largest factories specializing in bottle cultivation of King Oyster Mushroom in China.
The mushroom industry is a globally recognized emerging green industry, characterized by its circular economy features of being “short, flat, and fast” in terms of economic, ecological, and social benefits. China leads the world as the number one mushroom producer and exporter, accounting for 65% of the world’s total output. In Fujian Province, with its long history in mushroom cultivation, the total mushroom yield ranks third, preceded only by vegetables and fruits. In response to the Agricultural Development Planning for 1995-2010, the mushroom industry was introduced as a key industry and primarily supported in the Agricultural Structure Adjustment by the provincial government.
Scientific Research Advantage
Mr. Jiajin Yang, an agronomist and the original legal representative of the company, played a key role as the technical leader in mushroom cultivation and processing. As the first president of the Mushroom Industry Association and Vice President of Agricultural Products Association and Leading Enterprise Association, Mr. Yang has made numerous achievements in mushroom R&D and popularization over the years. Our corporate technological development force is not limited to our team but also includes expertise assistance from within the province. We have a long-term cooperation with associate experts from the Provincial Agricultural Institute, who have contributed to our scientific research activities culminating in technological introduction, as well as innovation. Thanks to our frequent communication with professionals in Taiwan to learn their advanced technology and management experience, we have further strengthened our technical guarantee in project implementation.
King Oyster Mushroom (Pleurotus Eryngii/King Trumpet mushroom) is a rare fungus that has been extensively cultivated in Korea and Japan at a larger production scale. In 2005, the variety was introduced into Zhangzhou. Given the existing technical advantage in the mushroom industry, the development has so far reached a certain scale with family workshops, simple equipment, management, and technology. At Jiatian, we have leveraged the original bag cultivation and market research to enhance the technology, make investments, and introduce production equipment from Korea, thus opening a new chapter in bottle cultivation of King Oyster Mushroom.
1. Our production lines adopt an automatic production process, including automated batching and mixing of ingredients, bottling sterilization, and other such processes.
2. By introducing advanced equipment from overseas, such as bottling machines, we have dramatically increased production efficiency.
3. Our corporate self-developed invention patent is utilized in liquefaction inoculation techniques based on substrates from grain culture medium, considered the first implementation of its kind in China.
4. Our technical innovation in the air conditioning circulation system of the mushroom house is more reasonable than those in Japan or Korea, in terms of wind speed and regularity control.
