Xylitol Canada to Exhibit at Supply Side West Expo in Las Vegas, Nevada

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Nov. 14, 2013) - Xylitol Canada Inc. ("Xylitol Canada", or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:XYL) is pleased to announce that the Company will be exhibiting at the Supply Side West Expo in Las Vegas Nevada November 14-15, 2013. Supply Side West is the largest North American Ingredient trade show where buyers from around the world look for up and coming ingredients to use in their products.

"Over the past 18 months, industrial and commercial scale customers have increasingly looked to us as their supplier for bulk natural sweeteners. While historically our sweeteners were limited to our branded retail products, we have been able to expand both our scale, product catalog, and reach to become a supplier of bulk sweeteners to other manufacturers," commented CEO Andrew Reid.

As the Company's consumer packaged goods business has continued to grow through increased key retail accounts, other manufacturers have taken notice of the Company and its sweeteners. This awareness has led many manufacturers incorporating Xylitol and other sweeteners into their product formulations on a commercial scale. With this complementary business expanding, the Company is excited to display its product portfolio and capabilities at the Supply Side West Show.

Mr. Reid stated "While it's very exciting that major retailers have adopted our sweeteners at the consumer packaged goods/branded level, it's equally exciting to see large manufacturers recognizing the market conditions and adopting our sweeteners into their non-competing product offerings. Supplying other manufacturers on a commercial scale is a channel that we feel will help the Company continue to grow during these favorable market conditions."

Visit Xylitol Canada at Booth 29092 at the Las Vegas Convention center from November 13-16 for more information.
