Here’s a bit about Wild Zora and why we chose to partner with them:

Zora and her husband Josh moved to Colorado in 2012, and were taking their family hiking and skiing most weekends. They were sick of all of the sugary energy bars on the market and how they were full of ingredients they couldn’t pronounce and left them feeling hungry an hour later.

In 2014, Zora started mixing grass-fed free-range beef with organic vegetables from her garden in her home kitchen in Fort Collins.  She baked them and sent them with her kids for all of their activities and called them Meat & Veggie Bars.

Now, Meat & Veggie bars are distributed nationwide, but they have the same core values of grass-fed free-range meat with organic fruits and veggies.

Whole food clean ingredients that are full of protein, gluten and grain free, no sugar added other than what is in the fruit, no preservatives other than sea salt, dates and apricots. These are energy bars for the balanced, holistically minded athlete that cares about the quality that goes into their body, not just the calorie count.

Give you long-lasting energy rather than a quick, sugary, carb-loaded boost, so they are good for endurance athletes.

Safe and delicious for your whole family to eat, so it supports the lifestyle athlete (hiker, skier, camper, yogi).
