            - The timetable and budget are respected

            - Production has started on April 2nd, 2009

    MONTREAL, April 24 /CNW Telbec/ - Ranaz Corporation ("Ranaz") (TSX-V :
RNZ) officially announced today it has already started producing BarTech
nutritional bars in its Saint-Eustache (Québec) facilities. The company
therefore follows its timetable, which called for production to start on April
2nd, 2009. The company had previously committed to gather all its
manufacturing activities under the same roof, allowing for synergy and annual
savings of approximately $500,000.
    "Since early April, our manufacturing operations have started according
to plan and following our budgetary plan" stated Mr. Jean Bourassa-Marineau,
president and founder of Ranaz. "The production transfer of the bars has
required a fantastic effort of the part of our employees and I would like to
extend my most heartfelt gratitude to them. Their commitment and support for
the project have been nothing short of exemplary. Furthermore, 15 additional
employees have been hired to make sure the production activities can be fitted
on one work shift and we plan to add a second shift within the next 30 days.
We are extremely proud of our facilities; several clients have even visited
the premises and have stated they were impressed with the improvements made to
our nutritional bar manufacturing plant."
    For this project to become reality, the company has benefitted from a
$200,000 non-refundable financing offer made by the Québec government, through
the ministère du Développement économique, de l'Innovation et de l'Exportation
(MDEIE) and also from a $138,000 interest-free loan from the Government of
Canada through Canada Economic Development (CED).
    The Company is also proud to announce it will continue to count on the
vast expertise provided by Mr. Joseph Bachmore, president of BarTech (USA).
Mr. Bachmore will supervise the market development of private brands as well
as other Ranaz products in the United States.
