About the company

It’s 2013, and we called B.S. on protein bars. CrossFit’s taking off. People are going paleo. We couldn’t believe there wasn’t a more nutritious protein bar out there. Maybe we were a little naïve, but we decided to stop talking and try to make it ourselves.

We started RX in our kitchen. No venture capitalists. No consultants. No office. Just best friends. Eager and broke. Arms shaved with hairnets and lab coats. We went to work on a five quart mixer and made the bar we were looking for. Then launched it from scratch the old-school gritty way. Door-to-door and bar-by-bar. Read More

About the Company
I thought it would be more personal to write a few words introducing us, rather than using the faceless "about us" section found on most other websites.

Some of you may have known my previous business MYPROTEIN®, which I founded in 2004 and then later sold in 2011. Why is this relevant? Well, primarily I know what customers expect in terms of service, quality and innovation. Furthermore, as sports nutrition is fundamental for anyone wanting to improve their athletic performance, we aim to surpass expectations on all fronts.

The sports nutrition industry has undergone an incredible decade of development and growth. Unfortunately, it is also full of companies who want to make a "quick buck" who cut corners on their products and services to improve profits. Read More

About the Company
Square Organics began in the San Francisco kitchen of husband and wife Sarah & Andrew Gordon.

After battling asthma most all her life, Sarah discovered that eliminating inflammatory foods like gluten, dairy, soy, and processed sugars freed her from medication. And so Squarebar was born to support her restricted diet while maintaining an active lifestyle. It's been more than five years since her last asthma attack, and she no longer keeps an inhaler in the house.

Square launched March 2012 at Natural Products Expo West and is now nationally distributed... growth built on a belief that Ingredients are what Matter Most. This starts with sourcing only the most nutrient-dense organic and non-gmo foods, and striving to work directly with farmers whenever possible to ensure an ethical supply chain from crop to bar.

In the fall of 2013, this led to a partnership with San Francisco based non-profit, Not For Sale, to fight human trafficking with organic protein power...
