Smokefree Innotec Announces Results of Bryant West Focus Group

NASHVILLE, TN--(Marketwire - December 21, 2009) - Smokefree Innotec, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: SFIO) (http://www.sfio.us or http://www.smokefree-innotec.com) announced today that Bryant West Australia has recently facilitated a Product Focus Group to gather Australian consumer feedback on Smokefree Innotec's "totally smoke-free cigarette."

This meeting was a continuation of Bryant West's previous Focus Group recently concluded in October in Auckland, New Zealand.

The methodology adopted by Bryant West was to gather the responses from a 2.5 hour Product Focus Group on "REAL -- the 1st Smoke-free High-Tec Cigarette."

The focus groups were held on Tuesday the 1st of December 2009 in Melbourne and Sydney, Australia. The Participants were divided into 2 groups, these groups on average included 3-4 heavy usage smokers and 4-5 moderate smokers who are all currently active smokers. The participants came from the wider Melbourne and Sydney areas and were from broad and diverse social demographics.

The objective of these Focus Groups was to gather consumer feedback. In particular, Bryant West was interested in the group's product absorption, the effect of the product on the end user, the ease of product usage, the proposed costs of the product as well as the end users' perceived benefits and concerns of "REAL -- the 1st Smoke-free High-Tec Cigarette."

To summarize the key findings of the group:

The participants in this focus group reinforced that that REAL is a viable solution to a smoking alternative.

The moderate smokers in the focus groups reported that they believe that the product will greatly aid in quitting smoking cigarettes.

A high percentage of the groups believed that the effects of REAL where comparable to normal cigarette smoking and that they would actively use the product if available as a consumer item.

The conclusion of the Bryant West Australia's Product Focus Group and associated report indicates that REAL is a positive commercial product with a viable consumer market as well as a product that is essential for Australians.
