MUNDELEIN, Ill, Dec. 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Z Trim Holdings, Inc. (OTC Markets: ZTHO News), a bio-technology company providing value-added ingredients to a variety of industries, announced today that it will begin manufacturing non-GMO corn products in early 2013 to meet expanding domestic and international demand. Upon the announcement of the opening of its toll manufacturer's facility in November 2012, Z Trim Holdings, Inc. has received several requests from both U.S. and foreign companies expressing interest to purchase our high viscosity, high water-holding capacity corn Z Trim that meets non-GMO standards. "Large markets in Australia, Asia and Europe will only accept a small number of products from a specific number of GMO corn strains," said Lynda Carroll, Z Trim's VP of Sales and Applications. "As we now have secured sources for non-GMO corn bran, combined with our increased manufacturing capacity, it will be much easier to make a big push to enter into these large specialty and global markets."
