The Titan Corporation -- innovator of the nation's first electronic pasteurization system for food -- announced today that Anchor Food Products, recognized as a world leading producer of appetizers, has signed an exclusive multiyear agreement to research and use Titan's patented SureBeam® technology.

Under the terms of the agreement, SureBeam Corporation, Titan's wholly-owned subsidiary, will be the sole provider of electronic pasteurization services whenever the company elects to use pasteurization technology. Anchor joins Kraft Foods as the second major processed food producer to sign with Titan SureBeam. Several other companies committed to bringing safer and higher quality foods to American consumers through the use of SureBeam® technology include: IBP and Cargill, the nation's largest and second largest producers of ground beef; Tyson, the nation's largest poultry producer; Huisken Meats, who launched the nation's first electronically pasteurized hamburgers last month in several Midwest states, as well as others.

"We always put our customers first. Our goal is to continuously strive to enhance quality, and SureBeam's technology does just that," said Bill Raaths, Anchor Food's President and CEO. "Anchor Foods is an innovator, a company known for being in the forefront in providing the best, safest, and most appealing foods to our customers. We believe SureBeam® technology is by far the best choice."

Anchor Foods, headquartered in Appleton, Wisconsin, has a worldwide reputation for making the highest-quality frozen appetizers. It is well known for its popular Popper® Brand stuffed jalapeno products, as well as cheese sticks, onion rings, quesadillas, spring rolls, vegetables and sourdough appetizers. Anchor products are available nationally through restaurant foodservice and supermarkets and sold under various brand names.

"This new agreement with Anchor Foods is another indication that SureBeam® is the technology of choice for the food processing industry. It also represents another significant step towards making SureBeam the nation's premier company in the electronic food pasteurization market," said Larry Oberkfell, President and CEO of Titan's SureBeam Corporation.

Similar to a microwave oven, the SureBeam® system uses ordinary electricity as its energy source to pasteurize food after it has been processed and packaged. Titan's patented SureBeam® technology eliminates the threat of harmful food-borne pathogens such as E. coli, Listeria, Campylobacter and Salmonella without affecting its texture or taste.

"The leadership Anchor Foods is demonstrating for processed foods reflects the same leadership we saw in the meat and poultry industry," said Titan Chairman, President and CEO Gene Ray. "They all made their decision as soon as SureBeam® technology was proven safe, reliable, and available. They were there on day one. When pasteurized processed foods attain FDA approval, Anchor Foods will also be ready to go on day one."

Headquartered in San Diego, California, The Titan Corporation is a leading-edge technology company that creates, builds and launches technology-based businesses, offering innovative technical solutions.
