After eight years of research and development, Functional Formularies developed its flagship product Liquid Hope, a nutritionally complete whole food feeding formula without the added sugars, fruit-based sweeteners, additives or stabilizers found in other formulas. Recent clinical studies in the US provide compelling evidence to support the efficacy of these products, which many tube-fed patients in the Canadian market have already experienced.

Since its beginnings in 1972, Bowers Medical Supply has become one of Canada’s leading national healthcare suppliers. For over 46 years they have been providing service solutions for the Canadian healthcare industry. The partnership between Bowers Medical Supply and Functional Formularies will now make the products available under many of the government programs in Canada. Canadians who are not covered under a government program and who have been ordering direct from Functional Formularies will now be able to experience cost reductions from shipping fees when ordering direct from Bowers.

“After years of offering this option to thousands of adults and children in the US, we are thrilled to be able to offer our products throughout all of Canada,” said founder and CEO Robin Gentry McGee. “Bowers Medical Supply and Functional Formularies share a similar vision, which is to provide families with high-quality solutions they can depend on.”
