Vega Biofuels Introduces Vega Biochar to Over 30,000 Attendees at The BIG Industry Show and Cannabis Cup in Denver, Colorado

Company Successfully Launches "Grow With Us" Marketing Campaign

NORCROSS, GA / APRIL 24, 2014 / VEGA BIOFUELS, INC. (Pink Sheets VGPR) announced today that its “Grow With Us” marketing campaign had a successful launch at the 2014 BIG Industry Show in Denver last week.

After announcing an agreement to acquire the Legal Hemp and Marijuana Division of Biochar Now, LLC, Vega Biofuels introduced its wholly owned subsidiary, Vega Biochar to over 30,000 attendees at the largest cannabis related business to business show in the world. Vega Biochar currently sells its Biochar product to growers in the legal marijuana industry and plans to market the product to growers worldwide.

Vega’s Biochar is a highly absorbent specially designed charcoal-type product primarily used as a soil enhancement for the agricultural industry to significantly increase crop yields. The Company’s Biochar offers a powerfully simple solution to some of today’s most urgent environmental concerns. The production of Biochar for carbon sequestration in the soil is also a carbon-negative process.

"The Show was a major success for our Company," stated Michael K. Molen, Chairman/CEO of Vega Biofuels. "I couldn’t have asked for more. We were able to meet growers from all over the world and create strategic business relationships that have already lead to orders for our product. We had growers come up to us and tell us how much their yield has increased by using our Biochar in their soil mix. With the help of James Gaspard, Co-founder of Biochar Now, LLC, we successfully launched our “Grow With Us” marketing campaign. The response we received was amazing. In addition to orders for our product, we met with several business owners interested in forming strategic alliances with Vega. We also met with the owner of a company that is currently using our Biochar in an agricultural mix and distributing it to several hundred retail outlets. We are now in discussions to acquire this company and make it a distribution arm of Vega Biochar. We look forward to providing details on this and other projects that we are working on as we move forward. This is a very exciting time for our Company. For additional information on our "Grow With Us campaign, I invite you to follow us on Twitter (@vegabiofuels)."
