Canadian-firm EnWave Corporation has signed a Technology Evaluation and License Option Agreement with Lalsai Dehy Foods (LD Food) to evaluate the potential commercial use of the company’s Radiant Energy Vacuum (REV) dehydration technology on a variety of vegetable, herbs, spices and dairy based products in India.
During the term of the Agreement, LD Food will rent a 10kW REV™ machine for intensive product development at its processing facility in Mahuva, Gujarat – an agricultural hub for onion production in India. If commercially viable ingredient and snack products are developed under the Agreement, LD Food will look to purchase REV™ machinery to commence commercial production at its BRC Global Standard, Gujarat facility.
The company currently has large-scale air-drying infrastructure installed for its existing product portfolio that includes a variety of onion, garlic, carrots and spice ingredient products. Utilizing REV™ technology, LD Food is looking to develop unique commercial scale prototypes and expand its product offering for domestic and international markets.
The expansion of EnWave’s global REV™ technology footprint into India further proves the significant value proposition for food producers seeking to launch new and innovative premium ingredient and snack food applications.
