Organto Enters Into US$590,000 Loan Agreement Convertible Into Common Shares at C$0.42

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - April 4, 2016) - Organto Foods Inc. ("Organto" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:OGO) announces that together with its wholly-owned subsidiary, Organto Guatemala, S.A. it has entered into a secured convertible promissory note with SG Strategic Income Limited (the "Lender") pursuant to which the Lender has agreed to lend the Company US$590,000 (the "Loan") until March 30, 2017. Outstanding amounts will incur interest at a rate of 5% annually.

The Loan and any interest accrued to date thereon will convert into common shares of the Company (i) at the Lender's election on delivering written notice to the Company; or (ii) automatically, if Organto completes a financing of at least $5 million, including the value of the Lender's convertible note and any other debt convertible into equity securities of the Company as a result of such financing. Any conversion will be effected based on a price of CDN$0.42 per share and conversion shares will be issued on the same terms and conditions that are applicable to the securities issued under the financing. Completion of the transaction remains subject to final approval from the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSX-V").

Organto intends to use the proceeds of the promissory note for general working capital purposes and to finance the development of its business, which is focused on agricultural production in Guatemala of organic and conventional produce and its distribution to overseas markets, primarily in North America and Europe.
