(Okay, here's the official statement from Watkins Inc.:)
Irwin L. Jacobs, Chairman of Watkins Incorporated, and Watkins President Mark E. Jacobs were the guests of honor in the Chinese City of Zhengzhou where former U.S. President Bill Clinton spoke on September 8. Henan ZhongLu WuLiu Inc., a Chinese company that imports and distributes products from the Winona, Minnesota based manufacturer, sponsored the event. Henan ZhongLu plans on opening hundreds of stores in China featuring Watkins products.
Mr. Clinton stood behind a podium faced with Watkins logo in English and Chinese and spoke to an audience of Chinese business people. Behind Mr. Clinton, floor to ceiling stage banners featured Watkins and Henan ZhongLu. The event was covered extensively in newspapers and news journals throughout China.
It's obvious the Chinese appreciate the excellence of Watkins gourmet products.
