Union Equity, Inc.'s Wholly Owned Subsidiary Receives USDA BioPreferred Certification

BioFusion Corporation Increases Awareness of the Economic and Environmental Benefits of Its Products

ORLANDO, FL--(Marketwire - Jul 29, 2011) - Union Equity Inc. (PINKSHEETS: UNQT) is pleased to announce that its wholly owned subsidiary, BioFusion Corporation, has received its USDA BioPreferred certification for its "Multi-purpose Cleaner," General Purpose Household Cleaner and "Floor Cleaner and Protectors."

Since 2008, Federal law requires government agencies to give preference to purchasing products that USDA has designated as biobased. Government purchasing agents rely on the BioPreferred Catalog to purchase biobased products, giving an important market advantage to those biobased manufacturers and vendors listed. In 2009 President Obama put into place an executive order (http://www.biopreferred.gov/files/EO_13514.pdf) to try to further push the program. Still there was not the participation desired so in February of 2011 President Obama issued a mandate that 95% of all products purchased by the Federal Government has to be Biobased products, if they exist.

"We are very excited to receive this BioPreferred certification," stated David Gubb, President of BioFusion Corporation. "We have pursued this certification and others because our industrial distributor wants to use their 975 plus sales people to target all government agencies and the 17,000 government facilities. This program gives the sales people a competitive advantage with our USDA BioPreferred label."
