Press Release: KeHE to Distribute LivBars® Nationally
Real Food, Organic Energy Bars to be Accessible to All Across USA
SALEM, ORE. MAY 24, 2019
Liv Foods Inc., maker of LivBars®, an all organic superfood, nutrition & energy bar, has announced a national distribution partnership with KeHE Distributors, the second largest distributor of natural and gourmet food products.
LivBars® are one of the industry’s only USDA certified organic energy bars that incorporate plant-based, low-allergen superfood ingredients in a handmade baked bar that is both crunchy and chewy. The bars are gluten free, GMO free, nut free, corn free, dairy free, and soy free. All of the flavors are vegetarian with two vegan options.
LivBar® recently gained notoriety with their unique compostable packaging, publicly challenging both CLIF Bar and KIND Bar to move toward not only organic ingredients, but also sustainable compostable wrappers.
“Our partnership with KeHE will allow us to open up the largest natural food and supermarket stores in the US, giving everyone access to a real food snack that not only tastes great but also has planet-friendly packaging,” says CEO Wade Brooks.
Founder Jan Johansen adds, “There is an epidemic of poor food choice in our schools and supermarkets, with candy bars disguised as nutrition bars. Our mantra is 'Eat Real Food' and every LivBar® has all organic, healthy, real food ingredients you know and love, listed right on the packaging.”
The fastest growing segment in the food space is currently organic options with a trend towards superfood ingredients such as turmeric, maca, cacao, kale, and matcha, which are incorporated into the five flavors of LivBars.
LivBars are currently available online at Amazon Prime, Amazon Subscribe and Save, direct from the LivBar website (https://livbar.com/), and in hundreds of stores, including, Erewhon, New Seasons Markets, Zupan’s, Garden Bar, and Roth’s Fresh Markets.
LivBar was founded in 2012 in Salem, Oregon, by two nutrition and fitness experts, Jan and Gabe Johansen. Jan was challenged to find any truly healthy energy bars she could recommend to her clients, so she created the LivBar recipes. LivBars are crunchy and chewy and come in five delicious superfood flavors: Coffee Maple Cacao, Raspberry Kale Maca, Blueberry Vanilla Kale, Ginger Lemon Turmeric, and Lemongrass Cherry Matcha.
