Jack Ma Ventures Into ‘Ma’s Kitchen Food’ – A Return to Business Amid Speculation

The billionaire recently backed a small enterprise aimed at processing and marketing agricultural produce, marking his latest venture since stepping away from the limelight during a regulatory clampdown.

The co-founder of Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. established “Hangzhou Ma’s Kitchen Food” with an initial capital of 10 million yuan ($1.4 million). The company, focused on distributing packaged agricultural goods, is documented on China’s National Enterprise Credit Information Publicity System.

Since 2020, when Beijing initiated stringent actions against his companies, Alibaba and Ant Group Co., Ma’s activities have been a subject of curiosity. He’s devoted considerable attention to agricultural pursuits and charitable work through his foundation. Ma joins a cadre of prominent entrepreneurs channeling substantial resources into the Communist Party’s “common prosperity” initiative, aligned with Xi Jinping’s vision of uplifting underdeveloped rural areas.

While Ma’s public appearances have been scarce, a March visit to a Hangzhou school hinted at a gradual return to public engagements. His recent focus remains centered on agricultural and educational projects, reflecting his enduring interests.

Details regarding his latest enterprise are scant. Reports indicate key positions in the new company are held by senior officials from his foundation. Despite Bloomberg’s attempts to reach Alibaba for comment, the Jack Ma Foundation has yet to respond.
