Canadian Zeolite’s Bromley Creek Zeolite Approved by OMRI in United States for Certified Organic Livestock Feed Ingredients

By | Corporate News | No Comments

Vancouver, British Columbia, Canadian Zeolite Corp. (the “Company”) (TSX.V: CNZ) (OTCQB: CNZCF) (FSE: ZEON) reports the Company’s Bromley Creek natural zeolite registered under the name Z-Lite Feed Additive has been approved by the Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI) to be used in Certified Organic production and food processing and handling according to the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) National Organic Program Rule. Z-Lite will be used as an organic additive for livestock feed ingredients.

On June 30, 2016 GLOBE NEWSWIRE reported, “The global market for animal feed organic trace minerals is expected to reach USD 624.6 Million by 2020, according to a new study by Grand View Research, Inc. Higher bioavailability or organic trace minerals in animals as compared to inorganic counterparts is expected to be a key driver for the market over the next six years. In addition, growing regulatory concerns regarding the hazardous effects of unabsorbed inorganic minerals is expected to further augment the demand for organic counterparts. Furthermore, inorganic trace minerals also affect the health of animals which has resulted in substitution by organic minerals in animal feed.”

“Canadian Zeolite has made great strides during the first quarter of 2017 in opening significant new markets for the Company’s natural zeolite” said Ray Paquette, CEO. “Our natural zeolite has been tested, proven effective and approved for a number of markets including as an additive to animal feeds in Canada and in a number of states in the USA, as animal bedding, a drying agent for moisture and odor control, artificial turf infill, composting, growing mediums and water filtration. Having identified these major markets and with products ready to address their needs we are now qualifying distributors throughout Canada and the United States to represent, warehouse and sell our products to meet the increasing demand.”

Canadian Zeolite is well-positioned to take advantage of the global focus on natural and green-tech markets. We are very fortunate to have a team of advisers who are recognized as leaders and innovators in the world of natural zeolites. With their decades of research and knowledge we have a competitive advantage to create, develop and market new and innovative technologies.

Canadian Zeolite Announces Distribution Deal with Canadian Distributor

By | Corporate News | No Comments

Vancouver, British Columbia, Canadian Zeolite Corp. (the “Company”) (TSX.V: CNZ) (OTCQB: CNZCF) (FSE: ZEON) is proud to announce a non-exclusive distribution deal with a Canadian based distributor. The distributor brings a large well-established network and years of experience using zeolite. He will be introducing the Company’s natural zeolite to his network in Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta as an additive of up to 2% of finished animal feed. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) has approved the Company’s Bromley Creek natural zeolite as an animal feed additive. The Distribution Agreement provides the distributor with specific protection enabling them to service and grow their network while allowing Canadian Zeolite to continue to increase its customer base outside the distributor’s network.

Natural zeolites have been used as feed supplements for commercial livestock production for decades. Numerous scientific studies have shown that adding zeolite to livestock diets increases the animals’ growth rate, increases feed conversion efficiency, decreases the incidence of intestinal diseases, reduces the toxic effects of ammonia and produces less odour and noticeably drier manure.

Mr. Ray Paquette CEO adds “we’re very pleased to work with this new distributor. Over the past several months Canadian Zeolite has received many enquiries for product and distribution opportunities. We are moving forward as quickly as possible to qualify these enquiries as we continue to commercialize our natural zeolite. This is another of many expected agreements as we strive to expand our national sales presence and increase the awareness of the multiple uses of natural zeolite in “green-tech” industries.”

Canadian Zeolite continues to work on new certifications and the development of new technologies such as zeoponics and zeolitic substrates for greenhouse and outdoor growing mediums.

Canadian Zeolite Signs Memorandum of Understanding with California Grower and Distributor

By | Corporate News | No Comments

Vancouver, British Columbia, Canadian Zeolite Corp. (the “Company”) (TSX.V: CNZ) (OTCQB: CNZCF) (FSE: ZEON) is pleased to announce it has reached a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with a California based grower and distributor of avocados and citrus products. Under the terms of the MOU Canadian Zeolite will supply the grower with zeolite and specifically developed zeoponics and zeolitic substrates to be used as growing mediums to enhance the overall health of the plants while also significantly reducing the amount of water consumption.

The California Avocado Commission states,“Irrigation is critical to avocado trees because they do not search for water and the roots are only in the top six inches of soil under the canopy. This top six inches of soil has a tendency to dry out and can stress the tree because healthy avocado trees need moist soil.” One of the key benefits of zeolite is the ability to absorb water and slowly release it to the root of a plant as needed.

Ray Paquette, CEO, Canadian Zeolite said, “we are very proud to have established a relationship with a prominent member of the California agricultural industry. This MOU is a great first step in moving the parties forward to defining the terms for a formal Distribution Agreement. This opens another market for the Company’s zeolite as we continue to focus on increasing sales and product development.”
