New Product   Expected to Open Up Significant New Market for Both Companies

YORKVILLE, Ill., June 12 , 2003 – FLEXIBLE SOLUTIONS INTERNATIONAL, INC. (AMEX: FSI, FRANKFURT: FXT), today announced that it has completed the acquisition of a 20% stake in privately held Tatko Biotechnology Inc.

Under terms of the previously announced agreement, Flexible Solutions International issued 100,000 shares of restricted common stock to Tatko in return for an option to buy 20% of the Peoria-based biotech company any time until June 1, 2008, upon payment of a nominal fee of $1. FSI also received exclusive rights to sell products comprised of its Water$avr evaporation control powder and Tatko’s patented azo-spirillium crop enhancement products. The exclusive rights cover the worldwide rice growing market in perpetuity.

“The combination of complementary and patented technologies of FSI and Tatko is expected to create a significant opportunity and open up new markets for both companies,” stated Daniel B. O’Brien, Chief Executive Officer of Flexible Solutions International. “We are targeting the worldwide 450-million-acre flood irrigation marketplace where an annual $20 per acre investment in our new product that currently is under development could yield $70 per acre in extra crop value.”

Water$avr, the flagship product of Flexible Solutions, is not only an effective method of reducing fresh water loss due to evaporation from reservoirs, lakes and irrigated cropland, but it is also a spreading mechanism that can deliver valuable nutrients developed by Tatko to flooded soil. By introducing these nutrients and enhancing nitrogen content at the source of field flood water, even and cost-effective crop fertilization is provided through the self spreading ability of Water$avr, Mr. O’Brien stated.

Tatko’s azo-spirillium product is an organic, naturally occurring micro-organism that provides up to 40% yield increases compared to untreated crops when evenly spread in the correct concentrations. “Our companies, working together over the next year, plan to commercialize a mixture of Water$avr and azo-spirillium for the flood irrigated rice market,” Mr. O’Brien said. “The combined product is expected to retain almost all of its evaporation reduction abilities, enabling rice production with up to 30% less water consumption.”
