NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - January 29, 2008) - A class action lawsuit has been filed on behalf of those who purchased or otherwise acquired securities of SunOpta, Inc. (NASDAQ: STKL) between August 8, 2007 and January 25, 2008, inclusive (the "Class Period"). The class action was filed in the Southern District of New York.

The complaint alleges that during the Class Period, the Company and certain of its officers and/or directors violated federal securities laws by issuing various materially false and misleading statements that had the effect of artificially inflating the market price of the Company's securities and causing Class members to overpay for the securities.
