September 22, 2020 – Real Food Blends was awarded a group purchasing agreement for Medical Nutrition Products – Enteral Nutrition with Premier, Inc. (Charlotte, NC). Effective August 1, 2020, the new agreement allows Premier members to take advantage of special pricing and terms pre-negotiated by Premier for all six Real Food Blends meals.
Real Food Blends makes 100% real food meals for people with feeding tubes. All six meal varieties contain only 5-7 real food ingredients (and nothing else) and can be used by adults and children. The meals are shelf-stable, and contain no added sugar, dairy, nuts, soy, or gluten ingredients, the company says.
Designed to be bolus-fed, the meals can also be used with gravity bags and feeding pumps.
“We’re excited to announce this award with Premier, which will make it easier for medical centers, long-term care facilities, and homecare providers to get access to Real Food Blends and give their enteral patients the power of 100% real food. Our goal has always been to make it easier for more people with feeding tubes to have easier access to 100% real food and nutritional variety. This award from Premier is a huge step forward and solidifies RFB’s role in helping to change the way enteral nutrition is approached and delivered,” said Real Food Blends Co-Founder and CEO Julie Bombacino.
