Everbloom Health opens food product manufacturing facility at HudsonAlpha

Everbloom Health has opened its new manufacturing facility on HudsonAlpha Institute for Biotechnology’s campus in Huntsville, which will expand the food manufacturer’s portfolio of barley-based food products.

According to a release, Everbloom Health’s barley-based offerings are catered to health-conscious consumers and individuals following kidney or renal diets.

In a statement announcing the new manufacturing facility, Everbloom Health president and CEO Chris Cummings touched on the company’s efforts to expand its nutritional profile.

“Whole grain barley has a wonderful nutritional profile as well as a great taste and texture,” said Cummings. “We think it is a good platform for developing new food products that are healthful, with clean labels, and that taste simply amazing.”

The company noted that U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) statistics showed that over one in seven American adults are impacted by kidney disease.

Everbloom Health stated its intentions of remaining committed to building a portfolio of kidney-friendly food products under the Burl Barley Granola brand for consumers with kidney-related health needs.

Cummings added, “We want to make it easy to enjoy delicious foods that are compatible with unique renal diets.”

The new facility will function as a product development site to test and launch new food products, advised the company. Since opening the facility, Everbloom Health has increased its product offerings to include granola bars and other products.

“We are excited about working to expand our product mix into new food types and flavors that delight our customers and help them live healthy lifestyles,” concluded Cummings.
