Who We Are

We’re a group of food and nutrition enthusiasts who truly believe that food should be an experience, it should feed your soul as well as your body, and that everyone should have access to real, pure ingredients.

MedBar™ was founded with one simple idea: Make good food that’s good for you. We wanted to make gourmet on-the-go snacks with the exotic flavors of the Mediterranean– and MedBar™ was born. Our bars were made to transport you to exotic places with flavors like Fig & Rose, Za’atar, and Dates & Nuts.

We want to keep MedBar™ healthy and tasty so we set these rules for our products:

  • Not TOO sweet. We say “No!” to artificial sweeteners–our sugars come from honey, acacia, and pomegranate.
  • Keep it real. Real Mediterranean flavors, with real health benefits. Eat better and feel better, even on the go.
  • Cater to everyone. Whether you want sweet or crunchy/salty, we have a MedBar for you. From Figs & Dates to Pomodoro and Hummus, we have flavors to satisfy all cravings.

We’re here to help raise the bar on the definition of good eating by using ingredients that are pure, unique and delicious.

We hope you love eating it as much as we’ve loved making it!
