NEW YORK, April 02, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- iFresh, Inc. ("iFresh" or the “Company") (Nasdaq: IFMK), a leading Asian American grocery supermarket chain and online grocer, announced today that the Company has launched sales of 3-ply disposable face masks at an affordable price to customers in iFresh chain stores, the iFresh online store at www.onlineifresh.com, and via the Amazon marketplace. The first shipment of 200,000 disposable face masks arrived in New York last week, produced by Xiamen DL Medical Technology Co. Ltd., (“Xiamen DL”), a 70% owned subsidiary of the Company. Ximen DL is ramping up production of N95 face masks in response to the New York and nationwide shortage of face masks as a result of the Covid-19 outbreak.
Mr. Long Deng, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of iFresh commented: “We continue to execute on our business strategy and demonstrate our ability to drive sales through online and offline stores despite the challenging market situation due to the Covid-19 pandemic. An increase in face mask production has been rolled out in an effort to optimize the Company’s manufacturing abilities to increase our supply of face masks for iFresh customers, as well as other Asian supermarkets. Most importantly, iFresh’s online grocery delivery service is now available and has become one of the most popular options in our communities during this special period. The management team remains confident about the Company’s steady growth in 2020 and beyond.”
