EnWave Announces Successful Installation and Start-Up of REV™ Machinery at Gay Lea Foods Facility

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - April 22, 2015) - EnWave Corporation (TSX VENTURE: ENW) (FRANKFURT: E4U) ("EnWave", or the "Company") is pleased to announce that the Company has successfully installed a small commercial Radiant Energy Vacuum ("REV™") dehydration machine at a facility located in Ontario, Canada for Gay Lea Foods ("Gay Lea"). Gay Lea, an industry leader in the production and processing of dairy products in Canada, signed a royalty-bearing commercial license with EnWave and submitted a purchase order for the REV™ machinery in November 2014.

Gay Lea will now begin production on the REV™ machinery, allowing them to initiate the commercial launch of their dried cheese products later in 2015. In order to retain the granted license exclusivity, Gay Lea must submit an additional order for at least one 100kW nutraREV® machine within 18 months from the signing of the original purchase order.

About Gay Lea Foods
Gay Lea Foods is a dairy co-operative comprised of over 1,200 Canadian farmers, all located in Ontario, which equates to an approximate 30% of the milk production in Ontario. Gay Lea manufactures a range of wholesome dairy products including milk, dips, butter, yogurt, sour cream, whipped cream, cheese, cottage cheese, and dairy ingredients. In 2008, Gay Lea partnered with the makers of award-winning artisan cheeses, Ivanhoe Cheese, to strengthen its cheese division. More information about Gay Lea is available at www.gaylea.com.

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 thirteen royalty-bearing licenses, opening up eight distinct market sectors for commercialization with companies. 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 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 three commercial REV™ platforms: nutraREV® 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; powderREV® is used for the bulk dehydration of food cultures, probiotics and fine biochemicals such as enzymes below the freezing point and quantaREV® is used for continuous, high-volume low-temperature drying. Two additional platforms, bioREV® and freezeREV®, are being developed as new methods to stabilize and dehydrate biopharmaceuticals such as vaccines and antibodies.
