Jiangsu Anpon wins Chinese brand award
Jiangsu Anpon Electrochemical's pesticide brand, “Anpon jitu”, has been awarded “well-known Chinese trademark” status by the State Administration for Industry and Commerce. The brand is used on a range of insecticides and herbicides marketed by the company. “Well-known Chinese trademark” is the “highest honour that can be awarded to a Chinese brand”, and is a mark of a brand's reputation, market competitiveness and influence, Anpon states. Jiangsu Anpon Electrochemical, a subsidiary of state-owned ChemChina Agrochemical, won a Yuan 100 million ($15.4 million) contract with China's Jiangxi province to supply the area with 300 tonnes of pesticides earlier this year ( Agrow No 607, p 22).
