Announcement of Share Buy Back Program from AML Foods Limited

Nassau, Bahamas - AML Foods
Limited today announces the launch of a share buy back program for its
ordinary shares. The program, authorised by the Company's board of
directors, allows for management to purchase up to 10% of its current
issued ordinary shares of 1,540,417 shares over a 36 month period to
