Frequently asked questions about bar manufacturing

What manufacturing process do you use in your factory?

We use a slab forming process to manufacture our cereal bars, protein bars, energy bars…

First, we bring all the liquid elements of our formulation to a boil.  Afterwards, we mix it with the solid ingredients. This blend is then sent to our production line where the bars are shaped, cut and packaged.

This manufacturing process preserves the natural qualities of the ingredients and the nutritional values of our bars.

What kind of bars can you manufacture?
We offer a wide range of bars for private label and co-packing: protein bars, cereal bars, fruits and seeds bars, energy bars, meal replacement bars, diet bars, fiber bars, healthy snack bars, marshmallow squares…
What is your maximum production capacity?

Our maximum production capacity is 3 million bars per week.

What is the minimum quantity for an order?
