FTI Picks Up Rights to Kover Germicidal Lamp Air Sterilizer

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - Oct. 17, 2006) - FTI FOODTECH INTERNATIONAL INC. (TSX VENTURE:FTI) announces the signing of a sales agency agreement with Breathe Free Inc. of Mississauga, ON for the exclusive sales rights for North, Central and South America and the Caribbean for the Kover line of Germicidal Lamp Air Sterilizer Systems. Initial interest has been very strong amongst various dental, veterinary and laboratory supply companies.

The Kover Germicidal Lamp Air Sterilization Systems are currently being used in Europe. In January 2005, a major European laboratory supply company rated them as their #3 top selling product.

Using proven technology combined with European innovation, the Kover Germicidal Lamp Air Sterilization Systems kills air-borne micro-organisms, using UV-C rays, providing a safe and efficient method of air sterilization. Based on a closed cycle, they work by pulling the air through a filter before forcing it into direct contact with two focused UV-C lamps, effectively killing most air-borne micro-organisms. All UV rays are contained within the unit, making it safe for enclosed environment working conditions.
