Biopack Appoints Two New Agents for Approaching Production Capacity Increase

HONG KONG--(Marketwire - October 9, 2007) - Biopack Environmental Solutions Inc. (OTCBB: BPEV) is pleased to announce that agreements have been reached with two new agents to facilitate the increasing global demand for Biopack's unique 100% biodegradable product. These new agents were signed in anticipation of the increased production capacity from the new production facility "Biopark." As demand for Biopack's products had begun to outpace production capacity, plans were put in place to set up their own proprietarily owned production facility in Jiangmen City, China. Four brand new production lines are presently being installed at Biopark which will augment present production capacity three fold from last year. Operations are set to begin by the end of the calendar year. Given this upcoming increased production capacity, M2 Formulex Inc. ("M2") and AGQPE Ltd have been commissioned as respective agents for the North American and South African regions.

M2's principals combine in excess of fifty years of food and beverage industry experience. Formed in November of 2002 and having affiliate offices in New York and Minnesota, M2 is engaged in product and applications development, business development consulting, and contract sales and marketing. Its clients are primarily small and mid-sized manufacturers of unique and innovative food, beverage and nutraceutical ingredient solutions, novel ingredient delivery systems, and emerging packaging technologies.

M2 will have Roots Biopack's products on display at the PMA Fresh Summit, an international convention and exposition held in Houston, Texas. This summit is held from October 12-15, 2007. M2 will host booth No. 5 under the name NNZ Inc. which will display samples of Biopack's meat and poultry packaging to key buyers in this large sector market.

AGQPE will also have Roots Biopack's product on display in the upcoming Natural and Organic Products Exhibition in Cape Town, South Africa at the International Convention Centre. The exhibition is held from October 12-14, 2007. This exhibition has grown from 64 exhibitors in 2004, to 250 this year. It is the only dedicated platform of its kind in South Africa, which aims to support the continuous growth of this industry through consumer education and awareness programs, as well as facilitate business to business interaction, networking and trade. Biopack's products can be found in booth D36. More details can be found at this website: http://www.seshowsandevents.com/no/
