PDC International Corp.
8 Sheehan Ave.
South Norwalk, CT, 06854

Press release date: July 7, 2009

WHO BENEFITS? Manufacturers of foods, condiments, beverages and vitamin supplements; also contract packers who serve the hospitality industry - or who want to expand their business with a unique, retrofit system that instantly delivers a distinct, competitive advantage

July 7, 2009. Norwalk, CT. PDC International Corporation, a global manufacturer of equipment and systems for applying heat shrinkable tamper-evident neck bands and labels, has announced commercialization of a unique, proprietary technology for precision venting the junction of bottle-necks and caps on full range of containers, including hospitality-sizes such as those used for room service and in mini-bars, as well as on gift packs and sample sizes. The venting allows evaporation of moisture and prevents cap corrosion and potential of contamination by organic growth.

The technology was originally developed for a project with H.J. Heinz (Pittsburgh, PA) and is particularly important for products that have long shelf lives, those that are shipped to humid destinations, and those slated for overseas shipment or extended storage.

The new PDC perforation system is an easy retrofit to existing packaging equipment, including PDC's tamper-evident neck banding machinery, shrink sleeve labelers and multi-packers. It operates at line speeds up to 400 bpm with sleeve diameter capacity between 1.5" and 7". A broad range of food and beverage products are excellent candidates for the system that works with PVC, PETG, OPS and PLA films. Like all PDC packaging systems, the PDC perforation module was designed using off-the-shelf, readily available components.

The H. J. Heinz Company is one of the world's leading producers of Ketchup and Sauces; Meals and Snacks; and Infant/Nutrition products. The Company has a world-class portfolio of powerful brands, with 150 brands holding number-one and number-two positions across five continents and in more than 50 countries.

Heinz has more than $10 billion in global sales as of Fiscal 2008, and a market capitalization of approximately $15 billion.
