Say hello to Hard Bar

Hard Bar believe that a successful business is about far more than profit. Their mission is to be an ethical and sustainable company, grounded in community, producing great vegan energy bars for a fair price.

The Hard Bar team began making energy bars at home in Chamonix as they couldn't find anything that really worked. They are food, not just fuel. The team wanted energy for big days out guiding clients in the mountains and needed something they could eat day in day out, without rotting their teeth and frying their heads with processed junk. Finding the best fruit and nuts they could, they mashed them up into a bar - packed full of good energy with ingredients grown responsibly, and organically, of course.

Hard Bar source their Fairtrade ingredients from local co-operatives in some amazing places, like the Hunza valley in the Himalayas. The co-operatives are grower owned and through the Fairtrade premium are able to invest in education and healthcare in their local communities, reduce and reuse previously wasted material and involve and empower the women in the area in the economics of farming. The ingredients are then shipped slowly, to minimise their CO2 footprint. Just one of the things Hard Bar are doing to try and be as environmentally friendly as possible.
