Montreal, Quebec--(Newsfile Corp. - August 29, 2016) - Earth Alive Clean Technologies Inc. (CSE: EAC) ("Earth Alive" or the "Company"), a leading developer and manufacturer of state-of-the-art microbial technology-based products, is proud to announce that its microbial biofertilizer, Soil Activator, has obtained final government registration to begin sales in Colombia.
"This is the sixth governmental registration we have obtained in Latin America since the signing of our distribution agreement with Brenntag seven months ago in February 2016," stated Michael Warren, VP Global Operations for Earth Alive's Agricultural Division. "Obtaining government registration is a long and arduous process and it is the first mandatory step for selling our biofertilizer in any given country around the world. The opening of the large Colombian agriculture market to Soil Activator is great news, and in-line with the execution of our business plan with Brenntag in Latin America."
Mrs. Paola Correal, Director of Operations for Earth Alive, commented, "There has been ongoing testing over the past several months of Soil Activator in Colombia on crops such as flowers, bananas, and vegetables. Based on great demonstrated results in those tests, we are expecting to ship a 40 foot container of Soil Activator to Colombia in early September. Some of this product will be used for large scale testing in an Oil Palm plantation as Colombia is the world's 4th largest producer of Palm Oil."
"Obtaining government registration for a fertilizer is a lengthy, complex process and each country has different legislations and procedures, which are all factors that affect the level of complexity and the time to obtain registration. Columbia for example required that we not only scientifically demonstrate that Soil Activator poses no harm to the environment but also proof of the efficacy of the product through comprehensive field trials of the product," stated Miguel Monroy, Earth Alive's Director of Business Affairs. He added, "We are proud of having successfully undergone this process, and Soil Activator is now registered in Peru, Chile, Puerto Rico, Guatemala, Honduras, and now Colombia." Mr. Monroy concluded by saying, "Government registrations in Ecuador, El Salvador and Costa Rica should be coming shortly in the fourth quarter, and we are also working closely with governmental agencies for registration in other countries such as Brazil and the USA."
