BFC stated it would use the funds to meet the conditions of the $2 million South Australian Government Regional Growth Fund grant awarded to fund the stage two expansion of the lactoferrin plant.

Once completed, the plant will be able to produce over 20 tonnes of product per annum.

The money was also used to fund the purchase of equipment needed for the increased production of lactoferrin and mozzarella to enable the plant to operation reliably 24/7.

Shares are expected to be issued on February 10.

BFC has ended the day 4.48 per cent in the green with shares trading at 7 cents in a $42.17 million market cap.
