Farmmi (NASDAQ:FAMI) stock is on the rise Thursday as investors react to the Chinese agriculture supplier’s most recent earnings report.
That earnings report includes the company’s results for the full year of 2021. This has it posting revenue of $39.29 million. That’s a 38.5% increase over the company’s revenue of $28.36 million for the full year of 2020.

Yefang Zhang, chairwoman and CEO of Farmmi, said the following in the earnings report sending FAMI stock higher today.
“We drove significant improvements in our financial results, while also launching a diversification initiative that will be key to our longer term success. We are benefitting from a higher order volume and expanded relationships because we have been able to secure the quality agricultural products customers want at scale, helped by our end-to-end supply chain. We expect this business momentum will continue into the New Year, which will help us further grow our sales.”
