Marani Brands to Begin Sales and Distribution in India

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - September 24, 2009) - Marani Brands, Inc. (OTCBB: MRIB) has been informed by its partner in India, KMOI International, that the first shipment of the Company's signature spirit, Marani® Vodka, has reached port in India and all registrations have been completed to begin distribution in India.

India is a key overseas market abroad for Marani due to its fast growing economy. A recent article in notes that the Asian Development Bank (ADB) has said, "The Indian economy is expected to grow by 6 percent in 2009 as capital inflows, industrial production and business confidence soar."

"The final approval to begin distribution in India now allows us to begin our drive to introduce Marani Vodka to what we feel is an important market for our Company and marks the achievement of a very important goal for the Company," stated Margrit Eyraud, Marani's CEO. Ms. Eyraud added, "India is one of the cornerstones of our effort to expand our brand and make our products available throughout the world. We intend to aggressively market and support our brand in India, enhancing market awareness and the stature of the brand. We are extremely excited about the introduction of our signature 'Marani Vodka' in one of the world's most dynamic economies."
