Ms. Yefang Zhang, Farmmi's Chairwoman and CEO, commented, "We are very pleased with our strong revenue growth and surge in profitability.  We successfully worked with our supply chain and customers to meet demand levels that were moving up and down with the COVID-19 lockdowns.  Our efforts paid off and we achieved impressive growth in our core Shiitake and Mu Er businesses, as we continue to leverage our competitive advantages, including premium product quality, sought after production locations and strong supplier relationships.  Importantly, we significantly strengthened our balance sheet and now have the resources to support our accelerated long-term growth strategy."
