  American Lorain Corporation Announces Acquisition of Controlling Interest in
  Europe Based Chestnut Manufacturer and Distributor

LINYI, China, Feb. 13, 2014 /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 acquired 51% share capital in
Athena Group ("Athena"), a France based prepared foods manufacturer and
distributor with a diversified product portfolio including chestnuts, bean
sprouts, as well as a variety of other Asian imported food products, for an
aggregate cash consideration of €1,995,000, or approximately US$2,702,650.

The Athena Group was founded in 1968 and currently operates two factories
based in France and one factory in Portugal. It is a leading brand and one of
the largest producer of canned chestnuts and bean sprouts products in France.
The France operation owns two highly automated production lines which are
considered Europe-leading in technology and capacity. The Portuguese factory
was established in 2013 and is located near Portugal's main chestnut producing
region, which is essential to sufficient supply of raw materials given the
falling chestnut output in Europe in recent years.

Meanwhile, Athena is currently one of the largest suppliers of Asian foods to
French supermarket chains and has a variety of imports such as coconut milk,
noodle, soy sauce, and rice paper from China, Thailand, Malaysia, etc.

After over 40 years of development, Athena's sales channel now covers over 80%
of the supermarket chains in France and besides sales generated under its own
brand, it is also a main supplier for private brand chestnut, bean sprout and
imported Asian food products for big supermarket such as Carrefour and Auchan
in France.

Mr. Si Chen, Chairman and CEO of American Lorain, commented: "We are extremely
pleased to announce to investors this acquisition in France. American Lorain
has been giving increasing emphasis in recent years to building a stronger
international sales network and this acquisition marks the other important
step for American Lorain along with our sustained marketing and operating
efforts in Japan as well as domestic China. France is in a central position in
Europe's food supply as well as logistics, and this acquisition will
potentially enable American Lorain to achieve a strategic command of the whole
chestnut industry value chain in Europe, yielding significant synergy together
with American Lorain's China operations. We will provide strong support for
raw material as well as procurement of Asian food supplies in China, and will
also be able to take full advantage of Athena's existing sales channels in
Europe to supply not only chestnuts but also other food products desired by
the European market. American Lorain and Athena will jointly work in this
strategic chance to develop new products with reduced cost in Europe's
chestnut and Asian foods market, and strengthen its leading position in
Europe."
