PORTLAND, ME (January 9, 2007) - Fine Nutraceuticals Inc. (FNI) emerged from the protection of Chapter 11 bankruptcy today. The newly reorganized company is now the sole source of Lignisul®MSM and Alavis®MSM, worldwide.
According to the President of the company Shawn Lyden, this is a huge victory for FNI which will now focus exclusively on strengthening the reputation of each brand.
"Many former Lignisul® and Alavis® customers were unsure who they should be buying MSM from,” said Lyden. “Through the judicial process we have emerged a stronger company, established clear ownership of the trademarks and eliminated the confusing license agreement with our predecessors. Those predecessors, Carolwood and Halton, have been excluded from participating in the United States MSM market through a Sanctions order in July 2005.”
He added that FNI is dedicated to providing the same American-made, distilled Lignisul and Alavis MSM, produced at the same facility which customers have highly valued for many years.
For more information about this release or to verify the source of LignisulMSM or AlavisMSM purchased after July 1st, 2005, please contact FNI at (800)214-1884, by fax at (800)216-1834 or through the website www.msm.com.
