Vancouver, BC, Oct. 16, 2012 — GreenAngel Energy Corp (“GreenAngel”) (TSX-V: GAE) proudly announces that the Canadian Federal Government has contributed $175,000 to GreenAngel investee Mazza Innovation Ltd. Member of Parliament Dan Albas (Okanagan-Coquihalla), on behalf of Agriculture Minister Gerry Ritz, travelled to Summerland to announce the news. The funds were provided with the specific intent to help scale up Mazza’s novel, environmentally-friendly phytochemical extraction process.
“This is a great example of what we are trying to achieve with our investments in innovation and commercialization,” said MP Albas. “Our Government is proud to support novel projects like this one, which find environmentally-conscious ways to help farmers add value to their crops. Bringing new ideas to the market will keep Canada’s agricultural sector strong and sustainable.”
Bruce Schmidt, CEO of GreenAngel Energy comments, “This funding and its arduous peer review approval process indicates the high level of scientific merit driving Mazza Innovation’s technology. This directly translates into world-class processes for the extraction of high-value plant derived chemicals. With that comes higher quality products and greater profit margins for users of Mazza’s technologies.”
This technology could likely fill a gap in the rapidly growing nutraceuticals market. Consumers are more frequently looking for food products with health and medical benefits that can help protect against disease. This technology can open new markets for farmers by creating value-added opportunities for their crops.
