Walgreens is right in line with our philosophy, and we're excited about the new focus on healthy food choices at Walgreens." Protein On-the-Go is unlike any other product on the shelf. The patent-pending pouch becomes a bottle when you add water, allowing customers to get a low-sugar, natural nutrition shake anywhere. Providing an affordable product that is high in protein and low in sugar has long been the company's goal. To entice customers, E-hydrate is scheduled to run nation-wide promotions in Walgreens including an upcoming BOGO (Buy One, Get One) deal for the entire month of January. E-hydrate's focus also includes unique marketing initiatives to drive awareness as the line scales up national distribution. Continuing the effort to establish a larger presence in the C-store market, E-hydrate also landed deals with Kum & Go, TA TravelCenters and APlus at Sunoco. "There is a surging demand in these channels for natural protein snacks. It makes sense for us, and I think it's a perfect fit," added Jim Kayser. E-hydrate's natural protein line is currently available at major high-end retailers, including GNC and Gelson's.
