MAUI, Hawaii, Nov. 29 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Bioponic Phytoceuticals,Inc. (Pink Sheets: BPYT) ("Bioponic"), an innovative provider of naturalproducts and patented technology serving the Complementary AlternativeMedicine (CAM) and nutraceutical markets, issued today a letter toshareholders from CEO and Chairman Steven M. Schorr to discuss the Company'smaterial developments during 2007.
I have great enthusiasm about Bioponic's achievements to-date, and theoutlook for the natural products and phytochemical production industry as awhole. Pharmaceuticals derived from plants account for over $10 Billion insales in the U.S. alone, and demand for plant-derived medicinals is on therise worldwide. By 2010, global sales of nutritional preparations and naturalmedicine will top nearly $200 Billion. Bioponic has over 94 proprietaryproducts in commercial production through our unique BioresonantPhytotherapeutic(TM) formulas and our proprietary Airponic Growth System thatenables the in-house production of the highest quality health and wellnessproducts.
-- This month, we launched Curemisinin(TM), an all-natural
artemisinin-based treatment for malaria. Alternative anti-malaria
medicines are in dire need in places like Africa, where every 30
seconds a child dies of the disease. According to the World Health
Organization (WHO), "The inappropriate use of anti-malarial drugs in
the past century contributed to widespread resistance in the malaria
parasite to drugs such as chloroquine, leading to rising rates of
sickness and death. Over the past decade, a new group of
antimalarials-- known as artemisinin-based combination
therapies -- has brought new hope in the fight against malaria."
-- Representatives from the American Friends of Guinea began distributing
Curemisinin to clinics in Conakry, the capital city of Guinea, Africa.
These human clinical trials will record the efficacy of Curemisinin,
an important step toward partnering with WHO and other organizations
that can aide Bioponic in bringing Curemisinin into countries where it
is needed most.
-- Our flagship product Flight Spray® is on the heels of a mass-market
launch into national retail outlets, including major health food
chains, top-name pharmacies and drug stores, beginning in the first
quarter of 2008.
-- Our Master Broker for the Western U.S., Active Sales and Marketing of
Southern California, will expand our retail channels for six of our
core product lines to 1,000 or more of the nation's top health food
stores in the Western region. We anticipate this agreement can add
$1.5 Million in sales to Bioponic in 2008.
-- This month also marked the launch of our first product suite geared
specifically for newborns and infants called Gentle Mother(TM). Gentle
Mother, a suite of five products that treat common ailments of babies,
is available for purchase online and will be rolled out to 1,000 or
more national retail chains beginning in 2008.
-- Entered into a $500,000 exclusive production and sales agreement with
Malie, Inc. of Kauai, Hawaii to manufacture Malie's new Facial Tonic
product line using Bioponic's proprietary ingredients and
-- Received an initial order from Singapore-based Muji Global Sourcing
Pte. Ltd. ("Muji"), who will be selling several Bioponic product lines
throughout its established territories in Asia.
-- Developed Curecumin(TM), a Bioresonant Phytotherapeutic(TM) formula
designed to treat Alzheimer's Disease and the five leading forms of
cancer (breast, colon, lung, prostate and skin cancers)
-- Continue to develop our portfolio of intellectual properties with the
acquisition of trademarks for our branded products and patent pending
status for our Bioresonant Phytotherapeutic technology.
From our local Hawaiian facility, we are capable of processing $150 Million worth of wholesale products. With new global distribution channels and the introduction of cutting-edge products such as Curemisinin, our scalable production capacity will enable us to meet current demand, fill orders and pursue OEM/private label agreements with companies like Malie Inc. who are utilizing our formulation and manufacturing expertise to bring their natural cosmetic products to market.
