The company's headquarters were in Hong Kong and the People's Republic of China (PRC) was its major customer. Despite hurdles like the Asian financial crisis in 1997, a ban by the western countries on imports of food products of animal origin from China and global economic slowdown, Pacific Andes surged forward successfully to end fiscal 2003 at HK$ 2,141 million with a net profit of HK$73.3 million. It also planned to expand in other developing countries to increase its global market share and gain sustainable competitive advantage through synergy.
