First Choice Products Inc. Holds AGM

ABBOTSFORD, BC, April 25 /CNW/ - First Choice Products Inc. (CNSX: FCI) (the "Company") held its Annual General Meeting on March 31st, 2011 at which time the shareholders elected the following board of directors: Mr. Robert A. Sim, Mr. Brian E. Sims, Mr. Norman Rempel and Ms. Linda Peters. Also approved was the proposed future vend out of the existing consumer products business to a private group of past management and directors. The consumer products business will continue as the current focus until such time as the vend out can be accomplished.

The shareholders also approved a motion that the directors actively seek opportunities to pursue the
acquisition of new projects before the aforementioned divesture takes place.

To accomplish that directive the Company is incorporating a wholly owned subsidiary to pursue opportunities in the energy sector. This will enhance the activities and future value of FCI. Upon completion of the subsidiary company it will act as a junior oil and gas exploration and development company with its purpose to acquire, explore and develop oil and gas prospects in western Canada.

The Company on behalf of its wholly owned subsidiary is reviewing several projects in central Alberta as its initial opportunity in the energy sector and hopes to finalize a commitment shortly. The wholly owned subsidiary will act independently subject to approvals of the FCI board of directors and management. Details of any project that the subsidiary acquires or participates in will be announced in due course.

The Company's common shares are listed for trading on the Canadian National Stock Exchange (CNSX) under the trading symbol "FCI".

On Behalf of the Board: Robert A. Sim, President
