Press release 2021-03-18

ArcAroma's juiceCEPT® application, which was developed for the treatment of
fruit and vegetable juices, has now been evaluated as an improving part of the
production of cold-pressed green tea. Tests in ArcAroma's own lab show that
the cold brewing time can be reduced from 24 hours to 30 minutes by using
CEPT® - with retained antioxidant qualities.

- We are proud that we can demonstrate so many positive effects by using our
treatment on cold-pressed green tea – it is a success for juiceCEPT®. Our
evaluation shows that we can significantly reduce the cold brewing time, while
maintaining the natural taste and all the positive qualities from the
antioxidants. The market for cold-pressed green tea has great potential and
our new application area has already been received with great interest, not
least in China, says Johan Möllerström, CEO of ArcAroma.

Tea is the drink most consumed in the world after water - over two billion
cups of tea are consumed every day. The global tea market had sales of more
than USD 52 billion in 2018 and is expected to exceed USD 81 billion by 2026.
In China, which is the world's largest market for green tea, approximately
300,000 tonnes of green tea are consumed per year.

ArcAroma's CEPT® technology has been shown to have several positive effects
on the cold brewing process for green tea. Green tea differs from other types
of tea in that it is not fermented or heated, which means that the tea leaves'
vitamins, antioxidants and positive qualities are preserved. ArcAroma's
evaluation is summarized as follows:

• Extraction of polyphenols > 500 mg / liter
• Enhanced extraction of Vitamin C
• Less bitter tannins are extracted
• The tea's natural taste, aromas and sweetness are maintained
• Cold brewing time is reduced from 24 hours to 30 minutes
• The treatment adds a minimal temperature increase of no more than 6°
Celsius
