          AfriAg Global - New UK Based Fresh Food Marketing Division 
 
AfriAg Global PLC (ISDX: AFRI) announces that it has launched a new 100% owned 
UK subsidiary, AfriAg International Limited ("AfriAg International"), to 
promote and sell fresh food produce from southern African producers directly in 
to the UK and European market places. 
 
AfriAg International is represented in the UK by Mr Tim Stokes working under 
the management of AfriAg Marketing, the Company's 100% owned South African food 
sales and market division. 
 
AfriAg International will provide a UK representational base for AfriAg 
Marketing's Sub-Saharan based growers, who are already permitted to sell their 
fresh food produce directly in to the EU markets, and provide them with direct 
access to UK and European retailers. 
 
AfriAg International intends to offer fresh food and vegetables from producers 
across Kenya, Zimbabwe, Mauritius and South Africa that are sustainable, 
renewable and responsibly grown. 
 
Our fresh produce offer will include: Apples, Pears, Blueberries, Physalis, 
Lychees, Citrus, Table Grapes, Fine beans, Sugar snap, Mange tout, Pineapples, 
Passionfruit, Herbs, Chilies, Butternut and Sweet potatoes. 
 
David Lenigas, AfriAg Global's Executive Chairman, commented; 
 
"We feel this new division fills a gap in the market place. It will also 
diversify our supply base, feed our logistics business and can potentially 
offer better benefits back to the primary grower by way of increased margins." 
 
The directors of the Company accept responsibility for the contents of this 
announcement.
