VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Nov. 30, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — EnWave Corporation (TSX-V:ENW | FSE:E4U) (“EnWave”, or the “Company”) announced today that it has signed its second Equipment Purchase Agreement with Patatas Fritas Torres S.L. (“Patatas Torres”), a leading snack manufacturer in Spain. This purchase is for a much larger 100kW Radiant Energy Vacuum (“REV™”) machine complimenting Patatas Torres’ previous purchase of a 10kW REV™ machine. Patatas Torres signed a commercial royalty-bearing license with EnWave in March 2020 for the right to produce REV™-dried cheese snacks in Spain. The acquisition of this larger continuous vacuum microwave processing line will allow Patatas Torres to meaningfully grow and leverage their successful development and launch of their portfolio of premium cheese snacks under the brand “Just This!” domestically.
Historically a leading manufacturer of premium potato chip products with robust international and domestic distribution, Patatas Torres has committed to diversifying its portfolio to include several healthy snack offerings through this meaningful investment in REV™ technology. Their plan is to develop multiple flavors and formats that appeal to varying international markets and which can be exported through Patatas Torres’ existing distribution network. The planned delivery and start-up of the 100kW REV™ machinery is targeted for May 2021.

EnWave Corporation, a Vancouver-based advanced technology company, has developed a Radiant Energy Vacuum (“REV™”) – an innovative, proprietary method for the precise dehydration of organic materials. EnWave has further developed patent-pending methods for uniformly drying and decontaminating cannabis through the use of REV™ technology, shortening the time from harvest to marketable cannabis products.
REV™ technology’s commercial viability has been demonstrated and is growing rapidly across several market verticals in the food, and pharmaceutical sectors, including legal cannabis. EnWave’s strategy is to sign royalty-bearing commercial licenses with innovative, disruptive companies in multiple verticals for the use of REV™ technology. The company has signed over thirty royalty-bearing licenses to date. In addition to these licenses, EnWave established a Limited Liability Corporation, NutraDried Food Company, LLC, to manufacture, market and sell all-natural dairy snack products in the United States, including the Moon Cheese® brand.
EnWave has introduced REV™ as a disruptive dehydration platform in the food and cannabis sectors: faster and cheaper than freeze drying, with better end product quality than air drying or spray drying. EnWave currently offers two distinct commercial REV™ platforms:
- nutraREV® which is a drum-based system that dehydrates organic materials quickly and at low-cost, while maintaining high levels of nutrition, taste, texture and colour; and,
- quantaREV® which is a tray-based system used for continuous, high-volume low-temperature drying.
