Affinor Growers Signs With University of the Fraser Valley to Explore Vertical Farming of Strawberries

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Jan. 12, 2016) - Affinor Growers (CSE:AFI)(OTCQB:RSSFF)(FRANKFURT:1AF) ("Affinor" or the "Corporation), a diversified agriculture and biotechnology company with proprietary vertical farming systems, is pleased to announce the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with The University of the Fraser Valley (UFV). The MOU details collaboration and utilization of Affinor's leading edge vertical farming technology in full-scale production mode. Grade A strawberries will be produced using an existing light-diffused polycarbonate greenhouse (manufactured by BW GLOBAL FREEFLOW) on the UFV campus in Chilliwack, BC. It is anticipated this operation will generate revenue from strawberry sales on a small scale at first, with expansion potential. This venture will also explore new agriculture methods and provide opportunities for the University of the Fraser Valley in pioneering new methods of production.

Jarrett Malnarick, President and CEO said that "This is a great opportunity for both Affinor and the University of the Fraser Valley. First run strawberry vertical production in BC could start as soon as the summer of 2016 and data collected from this operation will be compared with yields from existing operations in Michigan. This information will help prove the production capability of Affinor's vertical growing tower technology."
