VANCOUVER, British Columbia, March 24, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- GLG Life Tech Corporation (Nasdaq:GLGL) (TSX:GLG) ("GLG" or the "Company"), the vertically-integrated leader in the agricultural and commercial development of high quality stevia, announces the completion of 13 regional AN0C TM offices for national marketing and sales in China.

Thirteen regional AN0C TM offices responsible for marketing, national (KA) channel sales and distribution have been completed. In addition to existing KA channel partners such as Wal-Mart, Tesco, RT Mart, these regional offices will focus on the important regional distributor market in China which accounts for almost 70% of the sales volume of beverage products in China. These 13 regional offices cover all parts of China and are located in Beijing, Shijiazhuang, Qingdao, Shenyang, Wuxi, Hangzhou, Xiamen, Shenzhen, Guangzhou, Wuhan, Nanchang, Lanzhou, Chengdu. Each office consists of one branch manager, one marketing manager and one sales manager who lead their respective teams for an integrated marketing and sales approach in each region.   

These regional offices are already signing distribution agreements with new distributors and deposits for product already being received by AN0C TM. Local marketing through TV, newspaper, magazine, and supermarket promotion will commence soon to support the sales efforts.

The Company also confirms that the first national launch of the first SKUs will start on schedule at the end of March.

Dr. Luke Zhang, Chairman & CEO of both GLG and AN0C TM stated: "We are very glad to see that our experienced marketing and sales senior executives have quickly organized such strong teams, completed the set-up of the 13 regional offices and have started to sign up new distributors. We are pleased to receive such very positive responses for our first AN0C TM tea drinks. We are confident that the second quarter will be the first quarter making a significant contribution towards our projected revenue for 2011 for AN0C since we are launching our first series of beverage products into the start of the second largest season of beverage sales in China."
