PACIFIC ASIA TECHNOLOGIES ANNOUNCES FRESH TECH LAWSUIT

 VANCOUVER, B.C., Canada, April 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Pacific Asia Technologies, Inc., announced today that it has received copies of papers indicating that a lawsuit will be commenced by Fresh Tech to restrict the way in which Pacific Asia promotes the Maptek technology for citrus juices in North America. The claims do not concern in any way the flow of royalties to Pacific Asia. The company and its lawyers believe Fresh Tech Inc.'s case is without substance or merit. They are confident that the company will prevail in any litigation and the company intends to defend its position vigorously.
 In June 1992 Pacific Asia formed a joint venture, Maptek Produce, with a California company Fresh Tech Inc., for the exclusive purpose of promoting its Maptek Fresh technology for citrus juices in North America. Citrus juices packed with Maptek Fresh are now on sale in many parts of the USA and the advantages of the technology have been clearly demonstrated.
 Pacific Asia Technologies, Inc., licenses and markets and world's leading modified atmosphere packaging (MAP) technology originally developed at the University of British Columbia. MAP is a rapidly growing packaging system used for fresh produce to reduce the cost and increase the quality of fresh food as sold to the consumer. The company's technologies, Maptek Fresh and Tamfresh stabilize plant matter in whole, sliced or juice form in a state of hibernation. This in turn allows vegetables, fruit and flowers to retain the characteristics of freshness and "ripe pick" harvesting over an extended period reducing wastage while maintaining high quality and nutritional value during low cost distribution. Maptek Fresh and Tamfresh are environmentally friendly, do not use chemicals, irradiation or additives and eliminates the need for genetic engineering to achieve optimum distribution characteristics.
