TSX Venture Exchange: "WUF.V"

VERNON, BC, July 4, 2012 /CNW/ - Darford International Inc. ("Darford"), today released its financial results for the year ended March 31, 2012.

Darford's total revenues for the year ended March 31, 2012 were $7,881,440 compared to $5,937,682 for the year ended March 31, 2011. The net loss for the year ended March 31, 2012 was $2,240,739 compared to a net loss of $1,213,522 for the year ended March 31, 2011.

"The 2012 fiscal year certainly presented its difficulties, but the company forged ahead with the launch of the new ZERO/G® pet food into more than 300 retail accounts. By the end of the year, the company experienced lower than anticipated sales trajectory and higher placement costs for the food line. As a result, the company is implementing costs reductions with an eye to regain margin and profits as it re-focuses on its core treat line in the new fiscal year." Darford President and CEO, Darcy Bomford.

Darford markets and manufactures treats and food for dogs under its own Darford® brand name in Canada and in the United States. Darford also contract manufactures products for well known North American brands.

Management's Discussion and Analysis, audited financial statements and accompanying notes of Darford International Inc. for the year ended March 31, 2012, are available on the Canadian Securities Administrator's website at www.sedar.com.
