June 30, 2020 (Huntsville, Ala.) – Everbloom Health, Inc., a Sulfilatec company, has launched a new program called “Burl Gives Back” to address food insecurity. Through this program, the company is donating one bag of its Burl Barley Granola® product for every four bags of granola sold at burlgranola.com. The program was launched during the midst of COVID-19 stay-at-home restrictions and has been successful.
“Our product donations through the Burl Gives Back program have been much higher than we anticipated,” said Dr. Chris Cummings, CEO of Everbloom Health. “We deeply appreciate the support of our customers and love the opportunity to meet some of the needs of those facing food insecurity.”
Dr. Cummings explained that “hunger is all too common in our society due to food deserts, economic uncertainty, and other factors. It impacts all ages, from innocent kids to our cherished elderly and even entire families. Additionally, it impacts many within the kidney disease community, where we have a major part of our operations. The Burl Gives Back program is our way of doing what we can to help.”
Founded in 2018, Everbloom Health offers Burl Barley Granola as a healthy food option made with rolled barley rather than oats. Whole grain barley is used relatively infrequently in the US food supply, yet has many nutritional properties and is also a preferred grain for many renal diets. The company offers its granola as a kidney-friendly food to health-conscious markets.
Everbloom Health is a subsidiary of Sulfilatec, Inc., a biotech company working to develop new products that address the elevated mortality and morbidity burdens in dialysis populations. Everbloom Health and Sulfilatec are both located at HudsonAlpha Institute for Biotechnology in Huntsville, AL.
