Mark C. Mirken Named New CEO and Chairman of the Board of Millennium Biotechnologies, Inc.

BASKING RIDGE, N.J., Aug. 6 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Millennium Biotechnologies, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Millennium Biotechnologies Group, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: MBTG) today named Mark C. Mirken its new Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of its Board of Directors.

Mirken has been President and Chief Operating Officer of Millennium since he joined the Company in September of 2007. Mirken will replace Jerry Swon who has been Chief Executive Officer and Board Chairman since 2001. Mr. Swon will be retiring from these positions to pursue other business interests.

"In the short time that Mark has been with Millennium he has demonstrated a complete set of business skills and decisive leadership in designing, developing, marketing and selling a Ready-to-Drink product that is gaining significant market acceptance. Mark has created a new and dynamic product and a growing domestic and international customer base. The Agreements he has developed with Ferring Pharmaceuticals of Canada, a division of the international billion dollar drug conglomerate, is the beginning of significant international opportunities. Our three year manufacturing contract with General Electric subsidiary Farmland Dairies will anchor the domestic growth of our Ready-to-Drink product in the immuno-compromised and Long Term Care and Sports Channels. At this point in the Company's history we are extremely fortunate to have a person with Mark's business development capabilities and strategic vision to continue to build and develop the Company's products and line extensions in both its clinical and sports businesses," said Mr. Swon.

"I am extremely excited about the ability to move Millennium in the commercialization of its product lines and leverage and enhance its intellectual assets. I feel strongly that we must shed our past and move quickly to establish beachheads in the lucrative channels we have initiated while concurrently developing similar opportunities in related platforms. This development and execution of our targeted nutritional supplements, both powdered and Ready-to-Drink will lead the transformation of Millennium from a small start-up company with a promising technology to a global enterprise with increasing value to our shareholders," stated Mirken.

Prior to joining Millennium, Mark was consultant to numerous Wall Street funds across a broad category of disciplines. He was also the Chief Operating Officer of Turbochef Technologies, Inc. When he left in 2004, the market cap had increased from under twenty million dollars to approximately half a billion dollars. Mirken holds an A.B. from the University of North Carolina and a J.D. from the University of North Carolina School of Law at Chapel Hill.
