What is GORP’s Ready Mix?
GORP’s Energy Bar Ready Mix contains the exact recipe to make GORP’s Energy Bars, so you can Do It Yourself! All of the premium dry ingredients have been sourced for you and prepared in a take-home pouch. Once at home, pour the mixture into a mixing bowl, add the peanut butter and honey, mix, roll, refrigerate, and cut into 25 70g bars for less than $20. This means that each full-size energy bar will cost around $1.00 for a bar that regularly retails for $3.50. Customize the recipe to suit your needs! More at www.gorpworld.com/Ready-mix
“We are so excited that Ready Mix was so well received, and incredibly grateful for the Nexty Award! Natural Product Expo East was our first US tradeshow and we made such amazing connections. The thought behind our Ready Mix was that we wanted everyone to be able to enjoy a high quality protein bar, even if they are on a tight budget, because just like people deserve to have adventures, they also deserve healthy, convenient (affordable) food to take with them!”
“These 21 products represent the future of the natural products industry where sustainability and transparency are the norm,” says Jessie Shafer, content director at New Hope Network and one of the NEXTY judges. “Our industry has a major influence on how big manufacturers and mainstream buyers think about consumer packaged goods.
