EnWave Announces Successful Machine Installation at Napa Mountain Spice Company

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 02/04/14 -- EnWave Corporation (TSX VENTURE: ENW)(FRANKFURT: E4U) ("EnWave", or the "Company") announced today that the Company has successfully installed a nutraREV® machine for Napa Mountain Spice Company™ ("Napa Mountain™"), a specialty spice company focused on the production of organic bay leaves in Northern California. Napa Mountain™ has begun using the nutraREV® unit for the processing of their dehydrated spice products. A seasoned spice manufacturer with over thirty years of operational experience, Napa Mountain™ is known for producing superior-quality products that demand premium market value.

The key product enhancements created by the use of Radiant Energy Vacuum ("REV™") technology include an enhanced flavor profile, brighter natural color and the increased preservation of nutritional properties. Napa Mountain is also using REV™ technology to achieve the highest food safety industry-standards.

Pursuant to the Commercial License signed in September 2013 by both companies, Napa Mountain will pay EnWave a royalty on the wholesale revenue derived from the sale of any products dried using the Company's REV™ technology. All other terms of the existing Commercial License are confidential.

"This successful machine installation and start-up at Napa Mountain™ is the first of many machine installations that EnWave hopes to complete in 2014," stated Dr. Tim Durance, Chairman and Co-CEO of EnWave.

"EnWave's REV™ technology has improved our efficiency, tracking ability and processing protocols; offering even more benefits than originally anticipated," stated Mr. Paul Attard, CEO of Napa Mountain™. "Napa Mountain hopes to increase its market share by offering the highest-quality bay leaf products available anywhere in the world with cycle times reduced from one day to less than one hour."

About EnWave

EnWave Corporation is a Vancouver-based industrial technology company developing commercial applications for its proprietary Radiant Energy Vacuum (REV™) dehydration technology. EnWave aims to sign royalty-bearing commercial licenses with leading food and pharmaceutical companies for the use of its revolutionary technology. Thus far the Company has signed commercial licenses with Bonduelle, a global leader in the production of vegetables, for the processing of dehydrofrozen vegetables; Hormel Foods Corporation, a major processed meat manufacturer, for the production of healthy dried meat products; Milne Fruit Product, EnWave's first major licensee, for the production of several dehydrated fruit and vegetable products in the whole, fragmented and powdered form; a leading North American enzyme company, to dehydrate a series of food-related enzymes for their Tier 1 clients; and Napa Mountain Spice Company, to dry high-quality California bay leaves. In addition to these licenses, EnWave has formed a Limited Liability Partnership with Lucid Capital Management to develop, manufacture, market and sell all-natural cheese snack products in the United States under the Moon Cheese® brand.

Also, EnWave has entered into a wide range of research and collaboration agreements with an expanding list of multinational companies, including Nestle, Kellogg's, Grupo Bimbo, Grimmway Farms, Ocean Spray Cranberries, Cherry Central, Sun-Maid Growers, Gay Lea Foods, R.J. Reynolds and Merck. EnWave is introducing REV™ as a new dehydration standard in the food and biological material sectors: potentially faster and cheaper than freeze drying, with better end product quality than air drying or spray drying.

EnWave currently has six REV™ platforms: commercial-scale nutraREV® and MIVAP® are used in the food industry to dry fruits, vegetables, meat, herbs and seafood quickly and at low-cost, while maintaining high levels of nutrition, taste, texture and colour. The Company is also developing powderREV™ for bulk dehydration of food cultures, probiotics and fine biochemicals such as enzymes; quantaREV™ for continuous, high-volume low-temperature drying of pastes, gels, liquids, or particulates; and bioREV™ and freezeREV™ as new methods to stabilize and dehydrate biopharmaceuticals such as vaccines and antibodies.
