("IAF") has awarded Dr. Timothy Durance, Chairman and Co-CEO of EnWave, with the 2012 Award of Excellence for Innovation in Agriculture and Agri-Food.

"The Award of Excellence for Innovation is about celebrating the innovative thinkers who help drive B.C.'s agriculture and agri-food industry forward, for the benefit of all British Columbians," said IAF chair Stuart Wilson. "We are very pleased to honour Dr. Durance for his innovation and advancement of superior food dehydration technology."

"It is very gratifying to be recognized in B.C., where I've spent more than a decade of my career developing this technology," stated Dr. Durance. "B.C. is an ideal environment for agricultural innovators, given the diversity of the agri-food industry. nutraREV™ has the potential to benefit all agri-food sectors by providing producers with an economical, high quality method to diversify their operations."
