Eve currently has a 24% interest in Melbourne-based Omniblend Innovation Pty Ltd and plans to increase its investment in Omniblend to 40%.

Omniblend is developing evidence-based dietary interventions to improve the lives of people with common chronic diseases such as type 2 diabetes and low blood pressure.

Its maiden product is Faulding® GlucoControl, a patented food grade pre-meal drink for people with type 2 diabetes and pre-diabetes.

The pre-meal drink has been clinically shown to reduce blood glucose level peaks by 35% after carbohydrate containing meals.

The company plans to work with Eve and Omniblend to jointly market some of their products.

The company’s operations in New South Wales and Victoria achieved record profits, in spite of being badly affected in the mining states of Western Australia and Queensland.
