Affinor Growers Receives Exclusive Purchase Order from Barnston Island Herbs for Sweet Basil

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwired - June 25, 2015) - Affinor Growers (CSE:AFI)(OTCQB:RSSFF)(FRANKFURT:1AF) ("Affinor" or the "Corporation), a diversified agriculture and biotechnology company with proprietary vertical farming systems, is very pleased to announce that it has received an exclusive purchase order from Barnston Island Herbs, BC's original and best local grower of fine herbs, for all the Sweet Basil grown at Affinor's R&D facility in Port Coquitlam, BC.

Barnston Island Herbs is a BC owned-and-operated family business, with farms located in Surrey. The company is known for supplying very high quality of fresh herbs, greens and specialty produce to BC's top restaurants and hotels since 1979.

"After our inspection of Affinor's R&D facility, and seeing the quality of the Sweet Basil that Affinor has produced, we are very pleased to enter into this formal agreement with Affinor to purchase all of the Sweet Basil produced at this facility for distribution to our premier customers" comments Mr. Peter Hoffmann, President of Barnston Island Herbs, adding that, "Affinor's integrity and commitment to quality align well with our values. We are extremely pleased to this new partnership and look forward to working with Affinor".

Under the terms, Barnston Island Herbs agrees to provide the required bags to Affinor for packaging the purchased products, and to arrange the logistics required to pick up the purchased products from Affinor's facility. The agreement is valid for a six-month term, effective immediately. Barnston Island Herbs and Affinor will look towards a possible joint venture to expand by installing Affinor's vertical farming technology on lands currently owned by Barnston Island Herbs. As the local market leader in quality herb distribution for the Vancouver market, the Affinor Technology will help them increase production.

Nick Brusatore, Affinor's Chairman, comments: "I am very pleased and honored to work with this strong group as they are a great company and people who care about quality and service and have for many years. This is an epic event for Affinor because it demonstrates that our products are commercially viable and we can now begin to supply the local market and grow as a company".
