Xylitol Canada Provides Corporate Update on Xylose Plant Initiatives

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 9:20 AM on Wednesday, July 22nd, 2015

  • Company Appoints Dr. Anjana Meel Project Manager as project enters detailed engineering
  • We are now pleased to be in the final stages of plant development. We felt this would be a prudent time to issue a corporate update to share our progress with the markets.” Commented Andrew Reid, CEO of Xylitol Canada Inc.
  • Xylitol Canada’s consumer packaged goods division is based in Denver Colorado and has grown from under $500,000.00 in revenue in 2010. To over $8,600,000.00 in 2014.

TORONTO, ONTARIO–(July 22, 2015) – Xylitol Canada Inc., (TSX VENTURE:XYL) an innovator in xylose extraction and xylitol sweetened consumer packaged goods is pleased to announce that the Company is entering its final phases of engineering for its planned xylose production facility.

Xylitol Canada has been committed to developing a production scale xylose facility since going public in 2010. Throughout the past 5 years we have continued to optimize our technology, identify key commercial partners, and we are now pleased to be in the final stages of plant development. We felt this would be a prudent time to issue a corporate update to share our progress with the markets.” Commented Andrew Reid, CEO of Xylitol Canada Inc.

Xylitol Canada operates 2 business units that address the growing xylose and xylitol markets. Xylitol Canada’s consumer packaged goods division is based in Denver Colorado and has grown from under $500,000.00 in revenue in 2010. To over $8,600,000.00 in 2014. Xylitol Canada operates a 50,000 square foot xylitol facility where it produces and packages a full catalog of natural sugar free products, most notably its natural sugar alternatives. Through this Denver based facility, the Company services major retail customers such as Loblaws, Whole Foods, Costco, Sprouts, and many others.

The Company attributes its continued revenue growth to negative pressure on artificial sweeteners such as aspartame, as well as increasing negative reporting on refined sugar and high fructose corn syrup. With negative sentiment contracting consumption in these two categories, natural sugar alternatives such as xylitol have been able to gain market share and satisfy increasing consumer demand.

Separately, Xylitol Canada has continued to develop and optimize innovative technology to extract xylose and other high value bio-chemicals from sustainable hardwood sources. These materials are the building blocks for xylitol and other high value bio-chemicals. Since 2010, Xylitol Canada has conducted lab scale, pilot scale, and commercial scale trials using feedstock from major commercial partners worldwide. Currently, the Company is pleased to announce that its first commercial scale xylose plant is in advanced stage planning and development.

In September 2014, Xylitol Canada appointed Roche Engineering to facilitate preliminary engineering of the Company’s first commercial plant. This plant initiative comes on the heels of 2 years of site specific trials and commercial negotiation with a key feedstock supplier.

Process optimization has continued since the Roche appointment and recently culminated in commercial grade xylose samples being produced in early 2015. These xylose samples were distributed to prospective industry partners for evaluation and the quality was universally accepted as meeting or exceeding the highest North American food grade specifications.

Currently Xylitol Canada is completing preliminary engineering and is prepared to go to detailed engineering in October 2015. Working alongside Roche, a GANTT chart has been prepared that has Xylitol Canada breaking ground on this production facility in March of 2016 and tentatively completing the project in early Q1 2017. As such, the Company recently appointed Dr. Anjana Meel to spearhead the project management.

Dr. Meel has more than twelve years of experience in research, process development, and technology transfer at various companies including Dow Chemical Company and Cool Planet Energy Systems. Dr. Meel earned a Bachelor’s in Chemical Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology and PhD in Chemical and Bio-molecular engineering from the University of Pennsylvania.

Dr. Meel has been working closely with Xylitol Canada’s engineering firm, Roche, on bringing the project through the final stages of basic engineering and into the detailed engineering phase.

Xylitol Canada is currently an applicant for several federal and provincial grants to help fund the xylose plant. Furthermore, Xylitol Canada has engaged private market project finance partners, and is working with the Canadian Capital markets to secure financing for the project.

Xylitol Canada will provide project updates to the market as milestones are crossed throughout the coming phases of the project.

Xylitol Canada Generates $1.9M in Revenue For 3 Months Ended Mar. 31, 2015

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 4:53 PM on Thursday, May 28th, 2015

  • $1.9M in Revenue For 3 Months Ended Mar. 31, 2015
  • Q1 numbers were down slightly and is easily attributed to the West Coast port strike that made it difficult to get timely delivery of our Organic Coconut Palm Sugar

TORONTO, ONTARIO–(May 28, 2015) – Xylitol Canada Inc. (“Xylitol Canada“, or the “Company“) (TSX VENTURE:XYL) today announces that it has released its financial and operating results for the three months ended March 31, 2015.

Highlights of the results include:

Commented Andrew Reid CEO of Xylitol Canada: “While our year over year Q1 numbers were down slightly, it is easily attributed to the West Coast port strike that made it difficult for us to get timely delivery of our Organic Coconut Palm Sugar. We were forced to push some deliveries and commitments into Q2, however we don’t expect this strike, which has now been resolved, to have any material impact on our 2015 numbers. On a positive note, the Company deployed its new pricing structure on March 31 to customers throughout North America. This pricing adjustment came as a response to raw material price adjustments, and more so to compensate for the strong US dollar that negatively affected the part of our USA based product business that billed Canadian customers in Canadian dollars.”

CLIENT FEATURE: Xylitol (XYL:TSX-V) Natural Sweetener Co with $8.6M in Revenues for 2014

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 12:09 PM on Wednesday, May 13th, 2015

Financial Highlights

  • $8,600,000 in revenue for 2014 up from $6,500,000 in 2013

Marquee Customers Include:

Strong Institutional Ownership

  • Dundee Corp 29%
  • SunOpta BioProcess Inc. 26%

What is Xylitol you ask?

  • Xylitol is a sugar alcohol – and no, that doesn’t mean there’s alcohol in it. It’s also known as a polyol. Sugar alcohols contain fewer calories and fewer carbohydrates than other sweeteners. Replacing sugar with xylitol can be helpful if you’re trying to lose weight or even to help prevent weight gain.

What does xylitol taste like?

  • Xylitol is a white crystalline granule that looks and tastes like sugar. The good news is that it doesn’t have the negative side effects associated with sugar. Xylitol is low-calorie, low-carb, diabetic safe and we think it’s guilt free!

Where does your xylitol come from?

  • Xyla brand xylitol is extracted from North American grown hardwood trees, and it’s delicious. We believe the practices employed in the harvesting and processing of our xylitol are ecologically sustainable. Xylitol is also naturally occurring in many fruits and vegetables. Did you know the human body makes about 15 grams of xylitol per day?

Xylitol Canada, Inc. emerged in 2004 as a reseller and distributor of Xylitol and Xylitol products. Based in Toronto, Ontario, the company continued to grow and develop additional brands under the names Sweet Diabetic Delight and Xylitol Canada. Realizing the market potential for high quality, readily available, and consistently priced Xylitol and Xylitol products, the Company broadened its strategic vision in 2009.

Realizing that the void in the Xylitol market was based on inadequate supply and lack of awareness, the company initiated a 2-tier business expansion plan that sought to solve both of these problems. With the vision of a full scale North American Xylitol production facility as a critical element of this strategy, the Company reached out to the Capital markets and formally went public in April of 2010. With the capital base to aggressively address the marketplace, the company immediately began executing its business plan.

TORONTO, ONTARIO–(Nov. 14, 2014) – Xylitol Canada Inc. (“Xylitol Canada“, or the “Company“) (TSX VENTURE:XYL) today announces that it has released its financial and operating results for the Fiscal 3rd Quarter and nine months ending September 30, 2014. Highlights of the results include:

“We are pleased that the commercial acceptance for our products continues to be at an all-time high as indicated by our 60% year over year revenue growth. The strong U.S. Dollar combined with geographic sales mix led to some margin compression during the quarter. Our product division intends to implement measures in Q4 to enhance gross margins as we enter our busiest season. We look forward to continued expansion of our product division as the negative pressure on refined sugar and artificial sweeteners continue to accelerate,” commented Andrew Reid, CEO of Xylitol Canada.

The Company also wishes to thank Frank Iadipaolo for his services as interim CFO during the 2nd and 3rd quarters of 2014. Mr. Iadipaolo was instrumental in setting up a robust internal control system, daily and weekly divisional reporting, and he architected an across the board costing and margin analysis program. Mr. Iadipaolo’s structural initiatives under a tight timeline are applauded. During this transition, the Company would like to welcome Kyle Appleby back to Xylitol Canada as CFO.

What is Xylitol you ask?

  • Xylitol is a sugar alcohol – and no, that doesn’t mean there’s alcohol in it. It’s also known as a polyol. Sugar alcohols contain fewer calories and fewer carbohydrates than other sweeteners. Replacing sugar with xylitol can be helpful if you’re trying to lose weight or even to help prevent weight gain.

What does xylitol taste like?

  • Xylitol is a white crystalline granule that looks and tastes like sugar. The good news is that it doesn’t have the negative side effects associated with sugar. Xylitol is low-calorie, low-carb, diabetic safe and we think it’s guilt free!

Where does your xylitol come from?

  • Xyla brand xylitol is extracted from North American grown hardwood trees, and it’s delicious. We believe the practices employed in the harvesting and processing of our xylitol are ecologically sustainable. Xylitol is also naturally occurring in many fruits and vegetables. Did you know the human body makes about 15 grams of xylitol per day?

Xylitol Canada, Inc. emerged in 2004 as a reseller and distributor of Xylitol and Xylitol products. Based in Toronto, Ontario, the company continued to grow and develop additional brands under the names Sweet Diabetic Delight and Xylitol Canada. Realizing the market potential for high quality, readily available, and consistently priced Xylitol and Xylitol products, the Company broadened its strategic vision in 2009.

Realizing that the void in the Xylitol market was based on inadequate supply and lack of awareness, the company initiated a 2-tier business expansion plan that sought to solve both of these problems. With the vision of a full scale North American Xylitol production facility as a critical element of this strategy, the Company reached out to the Capital markets and formally went public in April of 2010. With the capital base to aggressively address the marketplace, the company immediately began executing its business plan.
