- Less than 2 months after launching in China, Else Nutrition opens a flagship store in the largest internet company by revenue in China – JD.com
- Else featured on ChinaDaily.com.cn, and received a bestseller rank on Tmall
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Nov. 16, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — ELSE NUTRITION HOLDINGS INC. (BABY) (BABYF) (0YL.F) (“Else” or the “Company”), announces that following a successful launch on Tmall in September, it is increasing its efforts in penetrating the Chinese market with the launch of a second online store, with JD.com. This launch comes at the start of the two busiest shopping months of the year in China and is expected to significantly accelerate Else product penetration amongst Chinese parents.
Since launching direct-to-consumer sales through Tmall, Else has been featured on ChinaDaily.com.cn and listed as a bestseller on Tmall in the category. Else plans to take advantage of the success so far to increase brand awareness and sales during the Double 11 and Double 12 shopping holidays in China.
“The reception for Else Nutrition products amongst Chinese consumers and key opinion leaders has been excellent, for this reason we made the decision to launch our second store in China on JD.com – China’s largest e-tailer” said Hamutal Yitzhak, CEO, and Co-Founder of Else Nutrition. “We expect a very good response and accordingly have decided to increase the shipments to China in the coming months in anticipation of this demand.”
JD.com is China’s largest online retailer, as well as the country’s biggest Internet company by revenue. JD has 580 million annual active customers, and the Else Nutrition JD store will allow parents on the platform to purchase Else Toddler and Baby Super Cereal products directly. The additional exposure to the JD audience is expected to increase the sales of Else Nutrition products to new Chinese customers in the coming months.
