    Thank you for the response an executive chef could ask his distributor salesman to have his companies buyer give him a call , If you go to the Bunge sales site Algawise is included in it's product list maybe he could get the buyer to call his Bunge salesman and find out why it is not available . I am not sure he is motivated enough to do this, but executive chef's (decision makers} have huge clout if they want to use it. He might even be able to call direct to Bunge sales office . Good luck

    PURE has a long non performing track record and now has some interesting new very timely and important products. Presentations are ok but with it's long history of failure only real sales will influence investors !!! If the company can announce some sales before the conference it will get real interest. Right now it is just a very speculative story..

    Today is the start of the Subway 6 million dollar investment starting to grow to 50 million. The company has said testing was going on by major potential customers for awhile now, so we should expect that we should be getting actual usage reports very soon. The world needs this protection our company has proven to the regulators that we can provide it . As you know I am not that confident because of lack of acceptance of the contact cleaner hopefully this is different .

    The product works hopefully it will sell. They have approval for the contact sanitizer , their biggest shareholder cannot sell the merits of the product to the majority of their own franchisees this is NOT GOOD. Now they will have 2 even more important and much bigger products with a big TAM , will they be able to sell that.??? They have done a very poor job with the first approval thus even though I am a stockholder I cannot really increase my position at this time.

    They are already using sanitize rs for their counter tops and food production. I would think since they have enough confidence in buying a Subway franchise they would follow the lead of their big money founders. It is not like they are going from plain water to a product that cost money it is just buying into a better sanitizer than they now use. I know the future products are what makes or breaks the company, but not being able to convince their own partners is not a good sign. I also think it is too late to wait until someone of the franchisees has a problem , you would want to be proactive. This is much cheaper than rebuilding a reputation.

    our problem is that the same folks who control Subway are the big investors in PURE and for some reason cannot even convince most of their Subway franchises to use the product. Why would anyone think this company has a future under these circumstances.

    I have seen it on the Bunge web page but I am looking for information in the food service world. Are the Sysco"Us Foods, Performance Foods institutional food distributors been introducing the item and featuring it in food shows??? Has Bunge been introducing it to the food service distributors and having demo's at hospitals , colleges and all sorts of potential customers ???

    We hear about thrive, but I have not heard one thing about the introduction of Algae oil by Bunge. Does anyone on this board have any connections with people in the institutional food service business ,such as Sysco or Us Foods or Bunge itself. I also have not seen anything in the institutional trade press . Looking for info.

    I am trying to figure out why more than 25% of Subway IS not using the product when the biggest owners of the company run corporate Subway. This is why we are getting zero traction saying Subway is individually owned by franchises is meaningless. The owners of Subway invested in Pure because they know using it at your restaurant makes you more money . They seem not to be able to convenience 75 % of the franchises of Subway that they are not maximizing their profits by using the product. Bottomline they bought the franchise from this group but do not believe their approach to food safety is worthwhile. This is outrageous and needs explanation.

    from what I understand PURE has zero toxicity the rest cannot say that. Pure last 24 hours the rest only until the chemical dries. These are huge differences if my understanding is correct. I also understand that PURE is cheaper to use because less product is needed.

    i have to agree the very slow adoption by Subway is a big problem. One would think by now this would have been adopted by almost all Subway stores , who ever heard that the major investors who by definition understand the benefits and believe in the potential so much they actually put big bucks into the company have not been able to actually show the individual franchise operators that they actually are hurting their bottom line and food security advantage by not using the product., If you cannot sell your own team something is very wrong.

    so what you are saying that all the major investment firms that have very high paid analysts in the industrial gas industry are not covering the phase out of R22 and the profit potential. I thought they are paid big bucks to look under every rock ,have they missed this one ???

    The fresh food industry is huge and is covered by every investment ad visor in the world. Today this company we are told is ready to introduce solutions for the food industry biggest problem. Why would not every analyst covering fresh food not be asking questions on today's CC. Has the company not made them aware of their solutions or are these very highly paid analyst all missing the boat ????
