NEW YORK — SurePure, Inc. (OTC QB: SURP), a global leader in liquid photopurification, has, in conjunction with a Cape Town, South African craft brewer, announced the successful application of the patented photopurification process to the production of cider. Partnering with the Garagista Beer Co., a Cape Town, South African craft brewer, the first cider variants, an apple cider and a pomegranate cider have been developed.
Says Steve Miller, owner of Garagista, “The premium cider market is a growing niche in the craft brewing market. Harnessing SurePure’s photopurification technology enables what we believe to be a cleaner-tasting, more natural product with a ‘no sulphur added’ promise that resonates with the discerning craft brew consumers. Additionally, being able to offer a shelf-stable cider without adding any preservatives or thermally pasteurizing the liquid, provides the craft brewer with a clear point of difference in the market. ”
Guy Kebble, CEO of SurePure adds, “We are pleased to see the successful results produced by the initial validation of the SurePure photopurification technology to cider production in the craft brewing sector.”
