VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/16/14 -- EnWave Corporation (TSX VENTURE:ENW) (FRANKFURT:E4U) ("EnWave", or the "Company") announced today that it has signed an extension with Gay Lea Foods Cooperative Ltd. ("Gay Lea") to allow them to continue working with the Company's Radiant Energy Vacuum ("REV(TM)") technology for an additional 6 month period. During this period, Gay Lea will retain an exclusive option to license REV(TM) technology for the production of a number of dried dairy products in Canada; however, their distinct focus will be on the development of a number of dehydrated cheese products. Gay Lea has agreed to pay EnWave CAD$30,000 to obtain this extension, allowing them to continue their product development and marketing evaluations.
"EnWave has recently received significant interest from a number of dominant cheese producing companies throughout the world," stated Dr. Tim Durance, Chairman and Co-CEO of EnWave. "Our decision to grant Gay Lea this extension was based on their quality as a company and their clear focus on developing a number of dried cheese products for the Canadian marketplace."
"We are very encouraged by the results we have derived from the use of REV(TM) technology thus far," stated Mr. Larry Hook, Gay Lea Vice President of Sales and Marketing. "In order to make an educated commercial decision, additional work needs to be completed."
About Gay Lea Cooperative Ltd.
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.
EnWave Corporation is a Vancouver-based industrial technology company developing commercial applications for its proprietary Radiant Energy Vacuum (REV(TM)) 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(TM) 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(TM) 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(TM) for bulk dehydration of food cultures, probiotics and fine biochemicals such as enzymes; quantaREV(TM) for continuous, high-volume low-temperature drying of pastes, gels, liquids, or particulates; and bioREV(TM) and freezeREV(TM) as new methods to stabilize and dehydrate biopharmaceuticals such as vaccines and antibodies. More information about EnWave is available at www.enwave.net.

What do a firewall and a fortress have in common? They are no longer strong enough to protect the valuables housed inside. Like the walls of an old fortress, the cracks in the firewall are allowing the bad guys to slip in - unannounced and unnoticed. By the time these thieves get in, the damage is already done and the network is already compromised. Intellectual property is easily slipped out the back door leaving no trace of forced entry. If we want to reign in on these cybercriminals, it's hig...

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will w...

The term culture has had a polarizing effect among DevOps supporters. Some propose that culture change is critical for success with DevOps, but are remiss to define culture. Some talk about a DevOps culture but then reference activities that could lead to culture change and there are those that talk about culture change as a set of behaviors that need to be adopted by those in IT. There is no question that businesses successful in adopting a DevOps mindset have seen departmental culture change, ...

Explosive growth in connected devices. Enormous amounts of data for collection and analysis. Critical use of data for split-second decision making and actionable information. All three are factors in making the Internet of Things a reality. Yet, any one factor would have an IT organization pondering its infrastructure strategy. How should your organization enhance its IT framework to enable an Internet of Things implementation? In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, James Kirkland, Chief Ar...

WebRTC defines no default signaling protocol, causing fragmentation between WebRTC silos. SIP and XMPP provide possibilities, but come with considerable complexity and are not designed for use in a web environment. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Matthew Hodgson, technical co-founder of the Matrix.org, discussed how Matrix is a new non-profit Open Source Project that defines both a new HTTP-based standard for VoIP & IM signaling and provides reference implementations.

The definition of IoT is not new, in fact it’s been around for over a decade. What has changed is the public's awareness that the technology we use on a daily basis has caught up on the vision of an always on, always connected world. If you look into the details of what comprises the IoT, you’ll see that it includes everything from cloud computing, Big Data analytics, “Things,” Web communication, applications, network, storage, etc. It is essentially including everything connected online from ha...

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, a...
