PURE Bioscience Ships Initial Order to Italian Export Consortium, TICE
PURE Products Now REACH Pre-Registered, Authorizing TICE to Import
and Distribute PURE Products Across Europe
SAN DIEGO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/07/13 -- PURE Bioscience, Inc.
(OTCQB: PURE), the creator of the patented silver dihydrogen citrate
(SDC) antimicrobial, shipped an opening order of PURE Hard Surface
and PURE Multi-Purpose Cleaner Concentrate to European distributor
and Italian export consortium, TICE.
"We have placed this order as part of our initial campaign of
customer trials and evaluation," said Dosolino Marangon, president of
TICE. "We have been receiving a positive response to our education
and marketing campaigns for PURE products, and anticipate a
successful product launch in Italy followed by introductions in more
than 25 additional European countries."
Since PURE announced its partnership with TICE in September 2012,
TICE has been pursuing the necessary REACH requirements to distribute
PURE's disinfecting and cleaning products in the European Union.
REACH, which stands for registration, evaluation, authorization and
restriction of chemicals, represents the European Community's
regulation on chemicals and their safe use. REACH also mandates the
progressive substitution of the most dangerous chemicals when
suitable alternatives have been identified. TICE has filed the REACH
pre-registration of PURE Hard Surface, PURE Multi-Purpose cleaner
concentrate and PURE Floor Cleaner with the European Chemical Agency
(ECHA), authorizing TICE by European law to import and distribute
PURE Products throughout Europe.
"This shipment and the REACH filing are milestone events for our
company," said Michael L. Krall, PURE Bioscience's president and CEO.
"We appreciate the time, resources and investment TICE has committed
to gain regulatory clearance for distribution of PURE products in
Italy and elsewhere in Europe. We look forward to this first
commercial launch of PURE across Europe."
TICE (The Italian Consortium Export) is a consortium
composed of Italian companies who have as their main philosophy the
promotion and sale of 100% made-in-Italy products, with an emphasis
on the North American market. The product categories for TICE
marketing include food and wine, production and process systems,
renewable energy process systems, hospitality and restaurant
decoration and design. Started on an experimental level in 2002, the
TICE Consortium was officially founded in 2004 with a small number of
companies. Over the years this number has grown, which has allowed
TICE to create a network of business relationships in Italy, the
United States and Mexico to execute innovative business concepts. For
