iPura™ Impresses in China

HANFORD, CA and BEIJING, CHINA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- September 22, 2006 -- Global Food Technologies, Inc. ("GFT"), a U.S.-based biotech food safety service company, is drawing attention in China.

On September 20, GFT executives and members of its advisory board were special guests at the Chinese Ministry of Agriculture's National Fisheries Technical Extension Center (NFTEC) in Beijing, China. The purpose of the meetings was to exchange ideas and information on the latest technologies in seafood safety. The meetings were sponsored by the Chinese Seafood Certification Institute (CSCI).

Han Min, CEO of the CSCI, stated, "GFT made a very good impression and the foundation for future development has been set. The meetings opened the doors that are normally difficult to open. The NFTEC and CSCI are very interested in pursuing GFT's seafood safety service and processing technology."

Also present during meetings was Wang Jin, Director of the Division of Cooperation & Exchange under the Ministry of Agriculture; he explained, "GFT's technology definitely fits the trend for increased food safety. The element of rejection and regulatory intervention insurance is evidence that the Company stands behind its service. This scientific approach is appropriate for our seafood industry as we desire to produce more exports to meet international demand."

Kexin Li, Director General of the NFTEC, commented, "The role of our organization is to be a catalyst and to give guidance to China's fisheries. It is our job to introduce advanced technologies to the industry. It is in the interest of our mission for food safety to join hands with our new friends at GFT to bring this technology to China."

Ronald Calonica, Director of Business Development for GFT, commented, "These meetings represent major steps in the development of business in the largest market in the world."
