Tasker Products Receives Authorization from USDA for its Tasker Clear for use in Meat and Pork Industries

Company can now market product to poultry, red meat and pork processing


FAIR LAWN, N.J., May 19 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Tasker Products Corp. (OTC Bulletin Board: TKER), a distributor and marketer of proprietary technology effective in inhibiting pathogenic bacteria, today announced that it has received authorization from the Food Safety and Inspection Service ("FSIS") of the United States Food and Drug Administration ("USDA") to market its Tasker Clear product as a processing aid in the red meat and pork processing industries. This comes on the heels of receiving similar authorization to market Tasker Clear to the poultry industry.

Tasker Clear is a liquid application that aids in the control of pH levels in water used in various protein (meat, poultry and pork) processing. The product is considered "safe and suitable", according to the FSIS, when used in the processing of red and white meats. Tasker Clear, when used in combination with Chlorine as an acidifier, becomes an acidified chlorine, which is a safe and widely used antimicrobial. The Company intends to market Tasker Clear in multiple sections of meat processing, from pre-carcass treatment to rapid chilling and in the ensuing "secondary processing" sections during which meat is separated into primal sections, finished product, tenderized, marinated, or ground.

Lanny Dacus, Tasker's president and CEO, commented, "This authorization extends Tasker marketing efforts to include red meat, poultry and pork processors, while working through testing processes of Tasker Blue for other meat processing applications. We have already received an order for Tasker Clear from a red meat processor. Tasker Clear applications for red meat and poultry processing are effective and cost competitive. Because of the existing worldwide use of acidifiers in meat processing, we intend to expand our market boundaries beyond the United States. We also intend to vertically expand our line of applications similar to what we did with our dairy line of products."

Mr. Dacus added, "It is estimated that the meat and pork market opportunity alone exceeds $200 million in annual revenue in the United States. As we announced yesterday, our goal is to establish Tasker products as a leading player in the food processing and dairy industries. Our goal is to gain a 20% market share in each category we enter."
