EXPLANATORY NOTE
 
This Amendment No. 1 (“Amendment”) amends the Current Report of SkyPeople Fruit Juice, Inc. (the “Company”) on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, or the Commission, on December 30, 2011.
 
Item 4.01 Changes in Registrant’s Certifying Accountant
 
On December 23, 2011, SkyPeople Fruit Juice, Inc. (the “Company”) dismissed its independent registered public accounting firm, BDO Limited (“BDO”), from its engagement with the Company with immediate effect. The decision to dismiss BDO as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm was recommended by the audit committee of the board of directors of the Company (the “Audit Committee”), and approved by the board of directors of the Company (the “Board of Directors”) on December 23, 2011.
 
The audit reports of BDO on the Company’s financial statements for each of the fiscal years ended December 31, 2009, and 2010, contained no adverse opinions or disclaimers of opinion, and were not qualified or modified as to uncertainty, audit scope, or accounting principles.
 
During the Company’s two most recent fiscal years ended December 31, 2010 and 2009 and the subsequent periods through the effective date of the dismissal of BDO, there were no disagreements on any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure or auditing scope of procedure, which disagreement, if not resolved to the satisfaction of BDO, would have caused BDO to make reference thereto in its reports on the Company's consolidated financial statements for such periods.
 
There have been no reportable events as provided in Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K during the Company’s fiscal years ended December 31, 2010 and 2009 and any subsequent interim period, including the interim period up to and including the effective date of the dismissal of BDO.
 
The Company provided BDO with a copy of the disclosure set forth in this Amendment No. 1 to the Current Report on Form 8-K, and requested that BDO furnish a letter addressed to the Commission  stating whether they agree with the disclosures contained in this 8-K. A copy of BDO’s letter to the SEC dated January 13, 2012 is filed hereto as Exhibit 16.1.
 
On December 24, 2011, the Company engaged Paritz & Company, P.A. (“Paritz”) to serve as its independent registered public accounting firm with immediate effect. The decision to engage Paritz as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm was recommended by the Audit Committee and approved by the Board of Directors on December 23, 2011.
