  Liu Chunxi, Vice President of Inner Mongolia Yili Industrial Group Co., Ltd.

   Dear leaders, distinguished guests, and friends online, good afternoon! I am very happy to gather here to discuss development, share experience, and make suggestions for a harmonious and healthy dairy market order.

   used to be a long time, due to technical barriers, for most consumers, dairy products were still scarce, and the consumer brand concept was weak. Now with the popularization of ultra-high temperature sterilization technology and the efficient operation of logistics, China’s dairy industry has ushered in a flourishing prosperity. When consumers choose products, they are more inclined to brands, continuously improving brand influence and increasing consumers’ attention to brands. It has become an inevitable choice for the development of dairy companies. As the top 5 in the global dairy industry and the leader in China’s dairy industry, Yili has always adhered to the consumer-centered concept and has been a favorite fan of consumers. It has won the love of consumers and its brand image is deeply rooted in the hearts of the people.

   Over the years, Yili has adhered to the corporate creed that Yili is quality, and regards quality as life, provides consumers with the most satisfactory service experience, and promotes the development of Chinese dairy industry. In this era, I will share in detail from the four aspects of soft power, brand power, innovation power and driving power.

  The first soft power spreads the high pattern, corporate culture represents the spirit of enterprise, and is also an important soft power for the development and growth of the company. Yili believes that all lives need to be nourished. Only in order to show the colorful vitality to the world, in order to bring rich nutrition support to everyone, Yili people are working tirelessly towards the vision of becoming the world’s most trustworthy health food provider, just as the chairman of Yili Group Pan Gang said , Be the Yili people first, and then do the Yili business. If we want to produce good products, we must first build a good character. In Yili, we pursue excellent quality, strive to be better, take responsibility, ensure that our mission is fulfilled, innovate, and continuously have innovative value. To achieve a win-win situation for all parties, embrace diversity, and respect and trust each other.

  The Yili culture engraved in the bones of the Yili people gathers all people into a flowing river, breaking through difficulties and obstacles, and leading China’s dairy industry to a broader market and making it global The future of the dairy industry in China has gradually become a reality.

  Secondly, brand power achieves good performance. Only when consumers recognize corporate cultural values ​​and recognize corporate products and services can corporate brand influence continue to rise and performance Achieve steady growth. In the list of the top 20 global dairy industry in 2020 announced by ABN AMRO, Yili has entered the top 5 global dairy industry and ranked first in the Asian dairy industry for seven consecutive years. In 2021, Yili has become one of the top 200 global brands in terms of global brand value. As the only Chinese food brand, Yili has been ranked first among the brands most chosen by consumers in the Chinese market for five consecutive years. Brand power is purchasing power. In 2020, under the economic downturn at home and abroad, Yili’s total operating income in the first three quarters was 73.77 billion yuan, an increase of 7.42%, and net profit was 6.044 billion yuan, an increase of 7%, showing a steady growth against the trend. To achieve continuous growth in total operating income. Among them, Yili’s liquid milk business unit has the largest market share for seven consecutive years, and its brand penetration rate has ranked first for six consecutive years, ranking first in the industry. The cold beverage business unit has accumulated more than 1,000 products on the market, ranking first in the industry for 28 consecutive years of production and sales. Yili Xinhuo, Yili Changqing, Yili Changyi and other brands once again ranked first in the category.

   For a long time, Yili has adhered to the consumer-centered concept and continued to cultivate the dairy industry to meet the segmented needs of more consumers. The Shuhua lactose-free milk developed by consumers is a delightful ice cream for fans of the national tide. QQ Star, Xinhuo and other items for consumers of different ages to choose from, it is worth mentioning that 2020 A certain Yili brand cooperated with heavily funded brands, such as Anmuxi, Golden Classic, and Grain Duo, to take the first place in market segments, and the brand influence of the entire product line continued to increase effectively.
