Plandai Biotechnology Announces Listing on Branded Ingredients Marketplace Website

Move Expected to Increase Exposure to Product Developers

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwired - Jun 23, 2016) - Plandaí Biotechnology, Inc. (OTCQB: PLPL) ("Plandaí" or "the Company"), producer of the highly bioavailable Phytofare® catechin complex, today announced it has registered the Company and its products on the Branded Ingredients website ( as a further step towards increasing product visibility with product developers. Branded Ingredients is a show case for branded ingredients manufacturers, helping them get in direct contact with potential customers. The service provides a marketplace for ingredients manufacturers and finished product developers to connect, aided by regular product updates and access to the latest news and product information.

Callum Cottrell-Duffield, vice president of sales and marketing for Plandaí, commented, "One of the biggest hurdles for new branded ingredient manufacturers to overcome is customer education. While we know the benefits of Phytofare® compared to generic green tea extracts, including the ten-times greater bioavailability and six times longer residence in the blood plasma, many product developers remain unaware of these differences. Unlike generic extracts, Phytofare® is backed by human clinical trials which show the advantages both in performance as from a cost-per-dose standpoint. As a Company, we have set as one of our goals for the coming year the need to educate manufacturers and consumers as to the clinically-proven advantages of Phytofare®. Registering on Branded Ingredients, which is a globally known and respected marketplace, allows us to rapidly disseminate news to the industry in a targeted forum that is used and relied on by our customer base."

According to the website, formulating products using branded ingredients over generics allows product developers to differentiate themselves by incorporating the additional information that branded ingredients have, such as strong scientific documentation. Branded ingredients give end consumers the confidence that the product is formulated with care by choosing a superior ingredient backed with human clinical trials.
