Sono-Tek to Present Scientific Paper on Food Safety at the IFT, as E. Coli Outbreak Affects Europe's Food Supply
Date:6/10/2011

MILTON, N.Y., June 10, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Sono-Tek Corporation (OTCQB: SOTK) today announced that its president, Dr. Joseph Riemer, will be presenting on Monday June 13, 2011, a scientific paper titled: "Enhancing Food Safety via Ultrasonic Spray Coating of Anti-Microbial Agents," at the Institute of Food Technologists' 2011 Annual Meeting in New Orleans.  

The IFT annual event gathers thousands of professional experts from all over the world, from industry, academia and government regulatory agencies, who come to explore and share the latest developments in Food Science & Technology.

This year's meeting has in its background the recent deadly E. Coli outbreak in Europe, which has already affected more than 2,900 victims, including 27 deaths in 13 countries.  European governments have mandated quarantines on cross border shipments of fresh produce with an estimated economic loss of more than $500 million to European farmers.

The safety of the global food supply is going to be discussed at the IFT proceedings in various aspects: from raw materials to good manufacturing practices to novel processing technologies.

Sono-Tek Corporation will introduce the meeting's participants to its latest innovation for enhancing food safety -- the SonoCoat AM ultrasonic spray coater for anti-microbial agents.  Based on technology transfer from Sono-Tek expertise in the medical device industry, the SonoCoat AM is capable of precision coating of food and food packaging surfaces with uniform, micronic layers of various anti-microbial agents. The system has already been proven in the baked goods industry, where it effectively applied various mold retarding agents (natural and synthetic) on high moisture content baked goods, enhancing their shelf life and reducing the number of returns.

The SonoCoat AM is part of Sono-Tek's strategy for the food industry, via offering of superior performance equipment that enhances quality and reduces costs.  Other Sono-Tek food applications include coating of flavors, nutriceuticals and oils.

Dr. Riemer added, "The food industry is known to be conservative in adapting disruptive technologies, such as our ultrasonic spray coating. Introducing our SonoCoat AM at this important scientific venue will provide more food technologies and food business executives with the know how of its superior technical features, and the confidence in seeking the economic benefits that this state-of-the-art technology presents."

These factors include, among other considerations, general economic and business conditions; political, regulatory, competitive and technological developments affecting the Company's operations or the demand for its products; timely development and market acceptance of new products; adequacy of financing; capacity additions; and the ability to enforce patents.
