JUNAN COUNTY, China, Dec. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- American Lorain Corporation
(NYSE MKT: ALN) ("American Lorain" or the "Company"), an international
processed snack foods, convenience foods, and frozen foods company based in
the Shandong Province, China, today announced that it has finished
installation of its chestnut decladding machine in December, 2013.

The machinery, imported from Europe, preheats the chestnuts into dry
condition, and declads the chestnuts using ejected natural gas flames.
Unshelled chestnuts are then carried directly to frozen storage through
connected pipeline. Average processing capacity could reach 3 metric tons per
hour. The unshelled chestnuts could be processed into a wide variety of
products such as chestnuts in syrup and chestnut snack packs.

Mr. Si Chen, Chairman and CEO of American Lorain, commented: "Before
introducing the automated decladding line, due to the varying size of raw
materials and differing specifics of finished products, our chestnuts are
mostly unshelled by hand. As labor costs continue to rise in China, we
introduced this automated line in an effort to reduce our reliance on human
labor. Enhancing automation, increasing productivity and reducing cost
constitute our main focus in the next few years and we are glad American
Lorain has made a solid step in this direction."
