Omnis Health launches the blood-glucose meter EmbraceEVO

BY Michael Johnsen

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Omnis Health recently announced the launch of EmbraceEVO, a new blood-glucose meter.

“The EmbraceEVO meter and test strips are positioned to provide end-users with an affordable cash-pay option that, in many cases, would be less than a co-pay through Medicare or third-party commercial insurance," said Rob Burton, president of Omnis Health.

The EmbraceEVO Monitoring Kit is pre-packaged with meter, 50 test strips, lancets and a lancing device — everything a patient needs to begin testing. 

The EmbraceEVO meter has a compact design with a large display and easy-to-read menu icons. It automatically stores up to 300 test and control results with date and time, and allows for 7-, 14- and 30-day averaging so patients and their healthcare providers can track and control blood-glucose levels.

Vapor Corp. introduces new e-liquids

BY Ryan Chavis

DANIA BEACH, Fla. — Vapor Corp., U.S.-based electronic cigarette company with brands that include Krave, VaporX, Hookah Stix and Fifty-One, earlier this week announced the launch of a new line of e-liquids for electronic vaporizers and other e-vaping devices. The line’s debut is a resonse to the rapidly growing e-cigarette-vaporizer industry nationwide, the company said.

"The launch of this new line of USA-made e-liquids reflects the tremendous growth that Vapor Corp. has experienced in the demand for its products and the nimble way in which we respond to our customers’ desires," said Jeff Holman, CEO of Vapor Corp. "Although we boast about being among the top five in retail distribution in the United States, it’s critical to stay ahead of the curve through consistently expanding our product offering to keep it current and interesting for consumers. We view this new offering of U.S.-made e-liquids as critical in our quest to further expand the presence of our brand within the high-growth ‘vaping’ market."

The new e-liquids will be available in tobacco, menthol, strawberry, blueberry and vanilla. All flavors are available in 1.8% and 0% nicotene strengths. The bottles also are packed with child-proof caps and are shrink-wrapped to restrict access to children. The product has a suggested retail price of $12.95.

Report: Harris Teeter eyeing expansion into D.C., Baltimore markets

BY Michael Johnsen

BALTIMORE — Kroger is planning to expand its footprint into Washington, D.C., and Baltimore under its Harris Teeter banner, according to a report in the Baltimore Business Journal published Thursday. 

Harris Teeter has multiple locations across the Baltimore area, including a new store in Canton, the report noted. 

Kroger also may soon be lowering prices across its Harris Teeter banner. According to the report, Kroger SVP and CFO Michael Schlotman told analysts earlier this week that Harris Teeter prices were actually higher than the consumer perception of those prices. "The actual pricing at Harris Teeter, going into the time of the merger, was a little worse than the customer’s perception of the pricing,” he said during the J.P. Morgan Consumer and Retail Conference in London earlier this week.

But lower prices will not necessarily translate into lower margins — Kroger has stated it expects to achieve between $40 million and $50 million in its acquisition of Harris Teeter, and those synergies will be used to reinvest into the franchise.
