New Partnership Bolsters Reliv's Access to Plant Biotech Research
Date:8/23/2011

CHESTERFIELD, Mo.,  Aug. 23, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Reliv International, Inc. (NASDAQ: RELV), Soy Labs LLC and the Missouri Plant Science Center today announced a new joint research and development partnership that will give Reliv greater access to the latest soy and plant biotechnology research.

"The partnership offers Reliv the opportunity to collaborate with some of the nation's leading biotech researchers to develop new nutritional ingredients," said Dr. Carl W. Hastings, Reliv's chief scientific officer.

Reliv is a maker of nutritional supplements that promote optimal health.

Soy Labs focuses on delivering high-quality soy ingredients to the leading health supplement formulators and manufacturers. The Missouri Plant Science Center is a joint venture of the Missouri Technology Corp., the University of Missouri System and the city of Mexico, Mo., where Soy Labs is also based.

"This agreement is a great example of what was envisioned for the Missouri Plant Science Center," said U.S. Sen. Roy Blunt of Missouri. "I believe this relationship between Missouri's biotech scientists, farmers, and Reliv - a successful private-sector job creator - will help strengthen our state's biotech industry and encourage further economic development."

Through the Missouri Plant Science Center, Reliv will have access to top biotech researchers throughout the University of Missouri System.

In addition, Soy Labs offers Reliv collaboration opportunities with other highly respected research institutions, including the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, the University of Louisville and the University of California campuses in Berkeley and Davis.

While it may take some time for those relationships to result in new supplement ingredients, Soy Labs potentially offers Reliv more immediate possibilities.

"Soy Labs has already produced breakthroughs in soy ingredients that Reliv will consider for use in new products," Reliv's Hastings said.

Soy Labs will benefit also. "This partnership offers us a ready-made market for new ingredients we develop with Reliv, and opens a new sales channel for our existing ingredients," said Ryan Schmidt, president of Soy Labs.

He added, "This is a first step toward the Missouri Plant Science Center's goal to strengthen the state's biotechnology industry, create jobs and improve Missouri's global economic competitiveness."

Soy Labs is a seven-year-old company that earlier this year moved from California to Missouri to become managing tenant of the Missouri Plant Science Center. Soy Labs has received research funding from the National Institutes of Health, the U.S. Department of Defense, the American Institute for Cancer Research, the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council and other organizations.
