PACIFIC ASIA TECHNOLOGIES SUCCESSFUL IN PRELIMINARY MOTIONS FILED AGAINST FRESH TECH

 VANCOUVER, British Columbia, April 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Pacific Asia Technologies Inc., announces that it has successfully opposed Fresh
Tech's preliminary legal motions filed against the company. In a hearing before a federal judge in California, Fresh Tech withdrew its request for a temporary restraining order and its motion for a preliminary injunction against Pacific Asia. The company remains confident that it will prevail in further actions, if any, brought by Fresh Tech and intends to continue 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 the 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 and 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 nutritional value during low cost distribution. Maptek Fresh and Tamfresh are environmentally friendly, do not use chemicals, irradiation or additives and eliminate the need for genetic engineering to achieve optimum distribution characteristics.
