PRODUCE WASH TO BE INTRODUCED IN NORTHWEST

 PRODUCE WASH TO BE INTRODUCED IN NORTHWEST
 RICHMOND, Va., Aug. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Nutrapure(TM), an all-natural


produce wash, will be introduced today by Dowpar, Inc. in Seattle, Washington.
 Nutrapure is an all-natural, non-toxic produce wash manufactured and distributed by Dowpar, Inc. The Richmond, Virginia-based company specializes in natural food washes that remove bacteria and pesticide residue from fruits and vegetables.
 "We designed the produce wash for quality-conscious produce growers who want to ensure that their fresh fruits and vegetables are as clean as possible," said Jim Dowd, President of Dowpar, Inc. "Response from the growers has been fantastic, so we decided to provide this product to retail grocers and the public. Nutrapure enables retail grocers to provide consumers with the extra confidence to purchase and eat the fruits and vegetables that are recommended by the U.S. Department of Agriculture for a healthy diet.
 "This is a whole new patented technology that we're introducing. We chose Seattle because it's generally known to be an environmentally responsible city," said Dowd.
 A random, scientific sampling of U.S. produce consumers conducted by the Center for Produce Quality revealed that 79 percent of consumers agreed with the statement, "Current regulations for pesticides do not sufficiently take into account the risk that pesticides pose to children." The study showed that 93 percent of consumers will wash produce better.
 Nutrapure, clinically tested by an independent lab (Hazelton Wisconsin, Inc.), significantly enhances consumers' ability to remove topical pesticide residuals, bacteria, and other surface residues allowing consumers to ensure that their produce is as clean as possible.
 The produce wash is designed for easy consumer use. The wash is diluted with water, and produce is soaked in the solution for a few minutes. Further, Nutrapure's all-G.R.A.S. (Generally Recognized As Safe) ingredients do not contain detergents or other materials that can leave residuals of their own.
 Nutrapure is the first product of Dowpar, Inc. a new company dedicated to developing products for agriculture that support the industry's efforts to make the fruits and vegetables grown and marketed for the American consumer the safest, highest quality produce available in the world today.
 "American grown fruits and vegetables are already the safest, most carefully regulated produce in the world," said Dowd. "Federal and State regulatory bodies continue to raise industry standards, however, and consumer activist groups continue to pressure both government and industry to adopt even stricter standards.
 "Produce industry leaders continue to work each day to improve total product quality, reduce pesticide usage, and control the risk that any unsafe produce will ever reach the American consumer. Nutrapure is a new technology that enhances total product quality and safety, and as such, will serve as another valuable tool in the industry's arsenal," said Dowd.
 Dowpar, Inc. is headquartered at 9100 Arboretum Parkway, Suite 120, Richmond, Virginia.
