EnWave Signs Commercial License Agreement with Kameya Foods and Receives Purchase Order for REV™ Machinery
SEPTEMBER 09, 2019,6:00 AM
EnWave Corporation (TSX-V:ENW | FSE:E4U) (“EnWave”, or the “Company”) reported today that it has signed a royalty-bearing commercial license agreement (the “License”) with Kameya Foods Corporation (“Kameya Foods”). Established in 1947, Kameya Foods started as a Japanese pickle manufacturing company in Shinshuku, Shimizu-cho. Situated in an agriculturally diverse environment, it has access to a variety of local, high-quality raw materials, which include some of Japan’s best-quality wasabi grown at the edge of Mt. Amagi, fresh vegetables and seafood from Suruga Bay. Under the terms of the License, Kameya Foods purchased a 10kW commercial Radiant Energy Vacuum (“REV™”) machine to initiate commercial production in Japan.
The License grants Kameya Foods the non-exclusive right to process a variety of premium seafood and fruit products, and the exclusive right to process wasabi, tofu and tea products in Japan. REV™ technology is a proven method to create healthy, premium fruit, vegetable and seafood products that can be sold as ingredients or as retail consumer products.
This License is the second signed by EnWave in Japan and further proves the value proposition of REV™ technology as a tool to create innovative, premium food applications.

EnWave Corporation, a Vancouver-based advanced technology company, has developed Radiant Energy Vacuum (“REV™”) – an innovative, proprietary method for the precise dehydration of organic materials. REV™ technology’s commercial viability has been demonstrated and is growing rapidly across several market verticals in the food, legal cannabis and pharmaceutical sectors. EnWave’s strategy is to sign royalty-bearing commercial licenses with industry leaders in multiple verticals for the use of REV™ technology. The company has signed over twenty royalty-bearing licenses to date, opening up eight distinct market sectors for commercialization of new and innovative products. In addition to these licenses, EnWave has formed a Limited Liability Partnership, NutraDried LLP, to develop, manufacture, market and sell all-natural cheese snack products in the United States under the Moon Cheese® brand.
EnWave has introduced REV™ as the new dehydration standard in the food and biological material sectors: faster and cheaper than freeze drying, with better end product quality than air drying or spray drying. EnWave currently has three commercial REV™ platforms:
1. nutraREV® which is used in the food industry to dry food products quickly and at low-cost, while maintaining high levels of nutrition, taste, texture and colour; and
2. quantaREV® which is used for continuous, high-volume low-temperature drying.
