VANCOUVER — On Jan. 21, EnWave Corporation announced that Alpina Productos Alimenticios A.S. BIC, a previously unnamed licensed partner of the Company, has developed and launched a new dried cheese snack brand, Alpina Snacks, in Colombia. Alpina holds an exclusive license to produce cheese snack products in Colombia using EnWave’s Radiant Energy Vacuum (REV™) dehydration technology.

Alpina is a dairy company in Colombia with annual sales of over US $700 million and operations in Colombia, Ecuador, and Venezuela. Alpina previously signed an evaluation agreement with EnWave in May 2020 and subsequently purchased a 10kW REV™ machine in July 2021. The royalty-bearing License was signed on July 19, 2021 to initiate production of its REV™ dried cheese snack portfolio.

The brand, Alpina Snacks, is being launched to target South American consumers looking for better-for-you snack options with clean labels. Alpina will leverage its distribution network to try and gain placement in specialty health stores, airports, e-retailers, and e-commerce, in addition to traditional grocery retail distribution.

EnWave’s scalable and reliable REV™ technology can be used to produce shelf-stable snack products. EnWave has signed 49 royalty-bearing commercial license agreements with companies that are bringing new products to market using EnWave’s patented dehydration technology.
