PUSLINCH, ON, Oct. 22 /CNW/ - Forterra Environmental Corp. (TSXV: FTE), a manufacturer, marketer, and seller of premium organic soil-enrichment products based on worm castings, is holding its Annual and Special Meeting for shareholders for the 2008 year at 4:00 p.m. (Eastern) on Thursday, October 29, 2009 at its manufacturing plant and head offices that the company opened earlier this year.
"We thought that rather than holding the meeting in some room in a downtown Toronto location, this would be a great opportunity to be able to show our shareholders the progress that Forterra has made in establishing and growing our manufacturing operations at our new plant," said Rick Denyes, president and chief operating officer.
"After the business of the meeting is completed, we look forward to showing our shareholders around the plant and will present each of them a sample of our worm castings product that they can use to further the growth of their home plants or gardens," he said.
Forterra's head office and manufacturing plant are located at 2272 Highway 6 South, RR No. 3, Puslinch, Ontario.
About Forterra Environmental Corp.
Forterra manufactures, markets, and sells environmentally friendly soil enhancers, using worm castings, which boost fertility while restoring the soil with organic matter for sustainable, longer-term benefits, including stronger root growth, and drought and pest resistance. Forterra products contain only organic material. They are ideal for golf courses, sports fields, lawn care, parks, nurseries, orchards, and vineyards. Essentially, Forterra uses red wriggler worms to convert organic material into vermicompost or worm castings. Worm castings contain micronutrients, which are required for healthy plant development. Worm castings also contain microbes, which increase the rate at which plants take up available macronutrients and micronutrients.
