On June 13, 2014, RiceBran Technologies (the "Company") announced that it has scheduled its 2014 Annual Meeting of Shareholders (the "2014 Annual Meeting") to be held at Scottsdale Plaza Resort, 7200 N. Scottsdale Road, Scottsdale, Arizona, 85253, on August 19, 2014 at 9:00 a.m., Pacific Daylight Time.

The 2014 Annual Meeting is being held more than 30 days after the anniversary of the Company's prior annual meeting of shareholders, which was held on June 18, 2013.

The bylaws of the Company set forth when a shareholder must provide notice to the Company of nominations and other business proposals that the shareholder wants to bring before the 2014 Annual Meeting ("Shareholder Notice"). The Shareholder Notice, contained in Article II, Sections 12 and 13 of the Company's bylaws, generally prescribes the procedures that a shareholder of the Company must follow if the shareholder intends (i) to nominate a person for election to the Company's Board of Directors at an annual or special meeting of shareholders called for the purpose of electing directors, or (ii) to propose other business to be considered by shareholders at an annual or special meeting of the shareholders. These procedures include, among other things, that the shareholder give timely notice to the Secretary of the Company of the nomination or other proposed business, that the notice contain specified information, and that the shareholder comply with certain other requirements.

In accordance with the bylaws of the Company relating to a change in the Annual Meeting date by more than 30 days after the anniversary of the Company's prior annual meeting of shareholders, notice by the shareholder must be received by the Secretary at the registered office of the Company by the date which is 10 calendar days after the date of announcement or other notification to shareholders of the dates of the Annual Meeting. Accordingly, in order for a shareholder proposal to be considered for inclusion in the Company's proxy statement for the 2014 Annual Meeting or for shareholder business initiated by a shareholder to be brought before the 2014 Annual Meeting, the shareholder must deliver a notice of such nomination or proposal to the Company's Secretary on or before 5:00 p.m., Pacific Daylight Time on Monday, June 23, 2014, and comply with the requirements of the Bylaws.

Notices should be addressed in writing to: J. Dale Belt, Secretary, RiceBran Technologies, 6720 N. Scottsdale Road, Suite 390, Scottsdale, AZ. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
