It rapidly developed into China's largest and the world's second largest professional manufacturer of sucralose within the shortest time, breaking into the international market monopolized by western multinationals through intellectual property rights.

The company's sucralose products are now available in over 3,000 kinds of foods, beverages, healthcare products, pharmaceutical and Daily Health Products fields in the world and are sold to 60 countries and regions across the five continents. JK Sucralose saw a sales growth of 100 percent in 2010 and expected a 70 percent surge of sales in 2011.
 
In order to meet the growing market demand for sucralose, JK Sucralose completed the second phase capacity expansion project and started production in July 2010 and launched the third phase.

JK Sucralose became the only company with 4,000-ton designed capacity of sucralose production approved by the government in China.
