EnWave Signs Equipment Purchase Agreement with Intakt Snacks of Chile
SEPTEMBER 29, 2020, 6:00 AM
EnWave Corporation (TSX-V:ENW | FSE:E4U) (“EnWave”, or the “Company”), announced today that it has signed an Equipment Purchase Agreement (the “Agreement”) with Lake Blue SpA d.b.a. INTAKT SNACKSTM (“Intakt Snacks”), a Chilean royalty partner of the Company. Intakt Snacks has purchased a second 10kW Radiant Energy Vacuum (“REV™”) machine to double its royalty-bearing capacity for the commercial production of dried cheese snacks in Chile. Intakt Snacks previously signed a royalty-bearing commercial license with EnWave in July 2015 and pays the Company a royalty equal to five percent of the revenues it generates from REV™-dried products.
Intakt Snacks’ portfolio of crunchy cheese products includes different types of cheese infused with various natural ingredients like Chili Pepper and Coriander (Spicy), Black Pepper, Oregano, Mozzarella-Blue Cheese, Onion, Tomato-Basil-Oregano (Mediterranean Mix), Blueberry, Raspberry, and Honey. Intakt Snacks currently distributed its products through domestic retailers in Chile and the U.S. through several keto snack distribution companies and e-commerce platforms. Intakt Snacks plans to expand its distribution into the Chinese and the Japanese markets in 2021, and recent growth has led to the need for additional REVTM machine capacity.
EnWave currently has forty active royalty-partners, including twelve companies that are using REV™ technology to create innovative, nutritious, shelf-stable dairy applications. REV™ offers its users proven scalability, reliability and material economic advantages.

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 patented 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 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.
