VANCOUVER — EnWave Corporation announced on Mar. 1 that its vacuum-microwave toll drying facility, REVworx™, is officially open for business. REVworx offers on-demand contract manufacturing services for the production of vacuum-microwave dried snack and ingredient applications for food companies of all sizes.

REVworx is a large-scale vacuum-microwave toll processing facility in North America that is exclusively offering drying services for third-parties. REVworx offers flexible production capabilities, filling the growing demand for consumer products made using EnWave’s proprietary technology.

REVworx will allow companies to bring vacuum-microwave dried products to market and will reduce risk by lowering the upfront capital investment, increasing speed to market and allowing companies to launch their products.

Located at EnWave’s head office in Vancouver, Canada, the REVworx facility incorporates complimentary upstream and downstream equipment required to process food applications at scale. REV technology yields products that retain flavour and nutrition, have unique textures and elongated shelf lives. REVworx is equipped with a 60kW tray-based REV machine, a 10kW REV unit for smaller batch production, a commercial scale air dryer for pre-processing, preparation equipment such as cutters, corers and slicers for fruits and vegetables, a fryer and seasoning station, and a bulk packaging area for shipment preparation.

The opening of the REVworx facility will open opportunities for both global and local food manufacturers to not only create new food ingredients and snacks for commercialization, but also enable growers to salvage and process imperfect produce and reduce overall food waste. Lower grade produce can now easily be processed and purposed into consumable food products, such as powders, fragments, and pieces for sale with the support of EnWave’s R&D team of dehydration experts.

Food manufacturing companies interested in exploring REVworx for dehydrated ingredient and snack production are able to book a guided drying trial to perfect both product characteristics and product economics prior to processing at scale.
