Campaign Description

Born in the shadow of the Rocky Mountains, BRAIN BAR is a plant-based protein bar for brain health. Developed in Calgary for today's mindful consumer, our bars contain 10-11 grams of plant protein plus brain-boosting ingredients. We need YOUR help to scale-up production, extend our product line, expand distribution, and create jobs! Our bars are made with high-quality ingredients sourced RIGHT HERE on the Prairies. We work closely with Canadian food scientists, graphic designers, packaging suppliers, distributors and retailers. We're intentional about doing our part to diversify and GROW the local economy!

Why Brain Bars

Support Small Business

We are an emerging food brand. Like most early-stage businesses, we are dealing with the challenges of the coronavirus pandemic and a general economic slowdown. When you buy our products, you are helping to diversify and grow the economy in a meaningful way.

Mindful Eating

We are very intentional about the ingredients we use in our products. Our key ingredients are sourced right here on the Prairies and we are active in the agrifood industry that produces them. We believe that it is important to know where your food comes from, and how it benefits your body and brain.

Health & Wellness

As we look ahead to a post-coronavirus world, we foresee an even greater focus on individual health & wellness. Consumers will be looking for snack foods that not only taste good, but that fit into their active lifestyle and deliver functional benefits.

Meet the Founder

Chris began laying the groundwork for Brain Bar in 2017 when he was making healthy, functional snacks in his home kitchen in Calgary. He was in the process of transforming his life through a combination of proper nutrition, physical fitness, meditation and volunteering. He discovered that following a more mindful diet had a profound impact on his mood and mental energy. But when he went looking for snack food products that addressed body AND brain health, he couldn’t find any. So, using plant protein and other innovative agri-food ingredients, Chris began prototyping the very first Brain Bar.

Chris has an MBA from Rotman School of Management. He majored in psychology in his undergrad, so brain health has long been one of his key interests. He is a former fitness competitor, avid volunteer, active outdoorsman, and life-long meditator. He can often be found in the Canadian Rockies: skiing, camping or hiking (with a few Brain Bars in his backpack).
