BranchOut Food Inc. Secures Third EnWave Dehydration Machine; Announces $40M Production Capacity with New Peru Facility

BEND, Ore., May 24, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BranchOut Food Inc. (NASDAQ: BOF), a leading food technology company specializing in dehydrated fruit and vegetable-based products, today announced the expansion of its agreement with EnWave Corporation (TSX-V: ENW | FSE: E4U). As part of this enhanced partnership, BranchOut has purchased its third large-scale EnWave dehydration machine. This addition is strategically aimed at expanding its new facility in Peru, with operations anticipated to commence in Q3, ultimately completing an estimated $40M in production capacity with 40-50% estimated gross margins.

The newly acquired 100kW NutraRev System, distinct from the two QuantaREV systems previously purchased, is designed to enhance throughput and improve margins, particularly in the B-to-B ingredient space. BranchOut currently operates a 60kW QuantaREV and has committed to a larger 120kW QuantaREV, both primarily aimed at branded and private label snackproducts. The addition of the NutraRev System is expected to bolster BranchOut's capabilities across different product lines.

These machines will be instrumental in servicing BranchOut's significant orders, including approximately $8M from the nation’s largest retailer, $1.1M from the nation’s largest warehouse club, and other potential customers in the pipeline. This expansion will position BranchOut as one of the largest Radiant Energy Vacuum (REV™) installations globally and the largest in Latin America. The strategic location in Peru, with its abundance of fresh produce and low-cost labor, further enhances BranchOut's competitive edge.

Eric Healy, CEO of BranchOut Food Inc., commented, "This expansion is a key element of our growth strategy, enabling us to scale our operations and capture additional market share. By integrating the NutraRev System into our lineup, we are not only poised to meet increasing demand but also to enhance our operational efficiency significantly. This positions us to lead in the production of high-quality ingredients and snacks, reflecting our unwavering commitment to innovation and excellence in the food industry."
