ITC judge to delay the September 22, 2008 judgement of the statement

Jiangsu, China, March 13, 2008 - JK Sucralose Inc., one of the largest global sucralose manufacturers, made the following statement concerning the International Trade Commission investigation “In the Matter of Certain Sucralose, Sweeteners Containing Sucralose, and Components Thereof” (337-TA-604):

JK Sucralose Inc. successfully intervened in the ITC investigation on August 15th, 2007 to defend its Sucralose product and its customers against Tate & Lyle Technology Ltd. and Tate & Lyle Sucralose.  After extensive discovery in this Investigation, including an inspection of JK Sucralose’s plant in China, the Commission Investigative Staff’s Pre-Hearing Brief concluded that JK Sucralose Inc. does not infringe Tate & Lyle’s asserted patents.  Although the Administrative Law Judge and the Commission have not ruled on the issue of infringement, JK Sucralose is pleased that the Office of Unfair Import Investigation has filed a pre-hearing brief stating that JK Sucralose does not infringe the asserted Tate & Lyle patents.

JK Sucralose Inc. filed several of its own Sucralose processing patents in the United State and China.  We respect the intellectual property rights of others and expect others to do the same. We only manufacture high-quality sucralose that is used as a general-purpose sweetener.  Our manufacturing plant is HACCP certified, ISO 9001 Certified, and under GMP control. We stand behind our product and will continue to sell our JK Sweet TM Sucralose globally and support our customers.
