SurePure Announces Exclusive Distribution Agreement With Milk Independent In Sub-Saharan Africa

Stocks in this article: SURP

NEW YORK, Aug. 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- SurePure, Inc. (SURP), the global leader in liquid photopurification, today announced that its subsidiaries SurePure Marketing SA (Pty) Ltd and SurePure Operations AG have entered into an exclusive agreement with Milk Independent (Pty) Ltd  of Stellenbosch, South Africa, for the distribution of its SurePure photopurification technology in the dairy sector across sub-Saharan Africa.

This announcement follows closely the announcement that the Indian Food Safety regulatory body (FSSAI) has approved the use of SurePure's proprietary photopurification technology as an alternative process to thermal pasteurization for milk and other dairy products in India. SurePure's distribution agreement with Milk Independent paves the way for the commercialization of SurePure's technology throughout Africa's fluid milk market, one of the largest dairy markets in the world. South Africa consumes 2.7 billion litres of milk per annum, with the balance of sub-Saharan Africa contributing about 28.3 billion litres per annum. 

James Fitzpatrick, Chief Executive Officer of Milk Independent stated, "We understand the massive opportunity for South Africa in food processing technologies. Taking this one step further into the rest of Africa means that we can bring about important changes, such as reducing carbon footprint, improving nutritional delivery in dairy products, reducing the costs of dairy processing and bringing a better product to the market at a lower cost." 

Steve Miller, VP Sales & Marketing at SurePure commented, "We were impressed with Milk Independent's commitment to our technology, bringing into production a state-of-the-art dairy processing plant in less than six months. While this is a measure of their expertise, they would be the first to concede that the ease-of-insertion of the SurePure technology played a significant part in this process. Milk Independent plans to have a similar processing plant in Centurion by the first quarter of 2014. The combined capacity of both facilities will be in excess of four million litres per month, less than 2% of South African production. This leaves large upside for Milk Independent to address."
