JustKitchen has created and recently launched Mr. Chili food items based on the ingredients and recipes of Mr. Hot products, to provide quality meals to convenience-seeking consumers who are also fans of Jam Hsiao. According to the Nielsen Marketing Research Consultant Co., Taiwan's instant noodle market recently approached NT$11 billion . 1 The total sales volume of Mr. Hot instant noodles in Taiwan is more than 1.1 million packs per year, due in part to the endorsement of Mr. Ching-Teng. Jam Hsiao Ching-Teng is primarily a pop singer who currently has over 1.95 million followers on Facebook, among other platforms. Mr. Ching Teng is currently the celebrity personality of Mr. Hot and is involved in the research and development process of many of its food products.

Mr. Ching-Teng recently completed a world tour with 70 concerts, including 25 concerts in Taiwan , with approximately 300,00 tickets sold. He is also the winner of the 13th Golden Melody Award as the Best Male Singer, which is the biggest music award in Taiwan . Jam Hsiao has also acted in several films like "The Killer Who Never Kills" and "My Geeky Nerdy Buddies", and successfully won the best new actor award at the Hong Kong Film Awards.

The Company has also developed and recently launched another proprietary brand, Kitsutaya. It was developed to meet the strong level of demand for curry and don cuisine in the Taiwan market, but with a lower price point than comparable menus suitable for family budgets. Kitsutaya has been available on the JustKitchen app as well as on UberEats and FoodPanda since April 20, 2022 . Offering Japanese cuisine to Taiwanese consumers has been deemed essential by Company management as it is currently one of the most popular cuisines in the country. Kitsutaya has been positioned as a complement to JustKitchen's other curry brand, Master Don Curry, but at a lower average price point. According to Taiwan Business Topics, Taipei has some of the best Japanese food in the world, outside of Japan , due to the range and quality of the city's authentic Japanese restaurants. 2 Also, Japan is the most popular destination for Taiwanese travellers, with over 4.5 million residents travelling to Japan per year, partially due to the cuisine. 3

Management Commentary

"We are excited to launch Mr. Chili in collaboration with Mr. Hot and the one and only Jam Hsiao Ching-Teng. This is an amazing opportunity for JustKitchen to launch our proprietary celebrity endorsed brand and making the instant connection to his fans worldwide," said Jason Chen , Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of JustKitchen. "Adding Kitsutaya as a Japanese brand from JustKitchen and having it available for delivery to consumers throughout Taiwan is also very important to the Company. Kitsutaya was originated by our data science team in identifying a cuisine gap that fulfils the family friendly and accessible categories," added Mr. Chen.
