Walnut Acres Headquarters To Relocate To New Rochelle
May 8, 2001

The parent company of Walnut Acres, Acirca
Inc., announced today the company will relocate its headquarters
from Arlington, VA to New Rochelle, NY at One Ramada Plaza. The
company expects the move to be completed during June 2001

"The relocation will unite key team members of Acirca in
a single location, improving efficiency and fostering teamwork"
said William Urich, Acirca's Chief Financial Officer.

The location in New Rochelle was selected because it is conveniently
located in a region that will allow Acirca to attract the best
professionals within the food and beverage industry. By relocating
to New Rochelle, Acirca will contribute to the economic and cultural
revitalization currently underway in the community.

The new office location will be designed to reflect the company's
values: Leadership, Teamwork, Trust, Risk-Taking and Innovation.
The name Acirca is inspired by the phrase "a circle of life."

Acirca retained Washington, DC-based Core Inc. to design the new
office space. Core is a leading architectural firm respected for
its focus on environmentally friendly layouts.

Acirca worked with Austin Corporate Properties as the leasing
agent; New Rochelle Hotel Associates is the landlord. Terms of
the multi-year lease were not disclosed.

Acirca is a privately held company owned collectively by company
employees and independent investors. Acirca was founded on June
1, 2000 to develop premier certified organic brands in the rapidly
expanding packaged organic food business. The company is bringing
new consumers of organic products convenience in packaged, certified
organic foods. The company markets Walnut Acres Certified Organic
Soups and Salsas. Walnut Acres is America's original organic brand,
