Functional Formularies, a brand of Nutritional Medicinals, offers two unique, chemical-free alternatives to traditional feeding-tube formulas and oral meal replacements: Liquid Hope, for adults, and Nourish, for children. Both products are nutritionally complete, plant-based and USDA-certified organic.

The company has grown substantially, from two employees in August of 2014 to its current staff of 13, and is looking to fill three more positions by November. Nutritional Medicinals will launch a line of sports-nutrition products as well as military MREs (Meals Ready to Eat) and emergency-preparedness shelf-stable foods in late fall.

"With the addition of several new employees, we have once again outgrown our space, and are thrilled to be able to provide Liquid Hope and Nourish to many, many people in need of optimal nutrition," said Founder and CEO Robin Gentry McGee.

The company will maintain its current location at 860 E. Franklin St. as the home of its Ohio-based medical team, insurance advocates and communications divisions. The new Centerville location will house operations and customer service.

The Vermont office will be the home of the company's research and development and educational outreach departments. Functional Formularies' Director of Nutrition, Dr. John Bagnulo, will lead that location.

Liquid Hope and Nourish provide enteral (feeding tube) nutrition for people who cannot consume food orally, for a variety of reasons. Both products are also used by those seeking a nutritionally dense, no-sugar-added meal replacement.

The public is welcome to attend a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new Ohio office at 2 p.m. Fri., Aug. 12, with Centerville Mayor Brooks Compton.

About Nutritional Medicinals

CEO Robin Gentry McGee founded Nutritional Medicinals in 2006 in Wilmington, Ohio, with the creation of Liquid Hope after searching for a healthy, no-sugar-added formula for her father, who required tube feeding after an accident. Today, the private company serves thousands of customers, hospital formularies and home health care organizations throughout the U.S., Canada, Australia, the U.K., and many other countries. The company also produces fresh, organic soups, sold at Dayton-area Dorothy Lane Market stores.
