2/18/2011 7:02:54 AM

SHANGHAI, Feb. 18, 2011 /PRNewswire-Asia-FirstCall/ -- China-Biotics, Inc. (Nasdaq: CHBT) ("China-Biotics" or "the Company"), the leading developer, manufacturer and distributor of probiotics products in China, today announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, Growing Bioengineering Company Limited, will attend a premier natural and health products trade show in Anaheim, California, in March 2011.

A senior R&D officer and other business executives from the Company will present at the Natural Products Expo West in Anaheim, California. Having attracted approximately 3,400 exhibitors and 50,000 spectators in 2010, Expo West is the world's largest natural, organic and healthy products trade show. This annual exhibition is hosted by New Hope Natural Media and has been ongoing since 1981. A wide array of industry participants including wholesalers, distributors, chain store owners and R&D professionals are expected to attend this year's event from Friday, March 11th to Sunday, March 13th at the Anaheim Convention Center.

Mr. Jinan Song, Chairman and CEO of China-Biotics, commented, "As an important aspect of the expanding global health products market, bulk probiotics products continues to grow rapidly in core areas such as dairy and animal feed while finding more applications in new areas such as food, beverage and cosmetics. We will continue to participate in more global industry events to gain insights into the latest industry trends and technological developments as well as to help promote our brand to a global audience. We are confident that the enhanced safety and stability of our bulk products are allowing us to venture into new market areas such as baby care products and eventually new domestic and overseas geographic markets as well."
