PuriCore in $14 Million Deal


4/8/2013 10:58:12 AM

8 April 2013 -- PuriCore (LSE: PURI), the water-based clean technology company, today announces it has signed a new Sterilox Fresh agreement valued at approximately $14 million with a top-five US supermarket retailer.

Under the terms of the agreement, the retailer will broadly implement Sterilox Fresh in its enterprise and has agreed to a six-year warranty agreement. The agreement will come into effect in Q2 2013, and the Company expects the majority of the revenue will be booked in the FY 2013 financial accounts. The remaining revenue will be recognised over the term of the warranty.

Leading US and Canadian supermarket retailers, including three of the top-five US chains, rely on Sterilox Fresh to extend shelf-life and to address cross-contamination for fresh produce. Sterilox Fresh is a natural food- safe rinse that kills harmful pathogens and spoilage organisms on contact to keep perishable products safer and fresher for longer. With extended freshness, Sterilox provides labour and inventory shrink cost savings to supermarket retailers.

Michael Ashton, Executive Chairman, said: “Leading US supermarkets continue to recognise the value of Sterilox Fresh as a company-wide solution for waste reduction in fresh produce as well as for food safety. Sterilox Fresh is a valuable tool for supermarkets looking to reduce inventory costs and improve margins.”
