Heritage Worldwide Increases Manufacturing Capacity to Meet Growing Product Demand

LA SEYNE-SUR-MER, France | Posted on March 27th, 2007

Heritage Worldwide, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: HWWI), a top provider of pre-filled
breast implants worldwide, announced that in order to meet increased demand
worldwide for its breast implants, it is expanding its manufacturing
capacity to accommodate the 38 percent increase in demand projected for
fiscal 2007 -- to 145,000 units, from 105,000 units for fiscal 2006.

Jean-Claude Mas, Chairman and CEO of Heritage Worldwide, commented,
"The progress we've made since March 2003 has been consistently on target
and more than satisfactory. Our recent success is due primarily to the
increase in the number of countries where we've been marketing our implants
(new sale authorizations). In particular, we made substantial headway into
Brazil and Argentina. We continue to do well in Europe, and have made
significant inroads into Australia and Asia. We are very pleased to report
our substantial growth and look forward to increasing our capacity even
further in 2008 and beyond."

Heritage Worldwide sells its products directly in France and Spain, and
through distributors in 63 other countries. Its focus is on Asia and the
Latin American markets, which the Company believes are growing very
rapidly.

The Company plans to expand its clean room to increase production
levels. This expansion will increase manufacturing capacity 275 percent --
from 160,000 units to 600,000 units per year, enabling Heritage Worldwide
to focus on its new products.

"Each product in our pipeline is truly innovative and already in
various stages of development," added Mr. Mas. "Moreover, excluding breast
implants which are Class III, our other pipeline products are Class II B,
so each will be able to receive a CE mark more quickly, generally
speaking."

During fiscal 2006, Heritage Worldwide announced new product
initiatives as follows:

* a breast implant filled with a specially engineered hydrogel that
mimics the physical properties of silicone gel, which will be a
substitute for silicone gel,

* an innovative dermal-filler, for the elimination of wrinkles and
creases,

* an anatomical breast implant,

* silicone-rubber body support implants (testicular, buttock and calf),
expected towards the end of 2007, and

* perhaps its most innovative product, a breast implant that uses
nanotechnology to coat and totally seal the implant with titanium,
expected during the second half of 2009.
