Bearded Brothers was started in March of 2011 by founders and (yes, bearded) brothers- Caleb Simpson and Chris Herbert in Austin, Texas. They were both making their own energy bars out of raw, plant-based ingredients because nothing on the market offered the level of high quality, non-GMO, soy and gluten free ingredients they both needed for their active, outdoor adventures. With creative and tasty flavors like Blueberry Vanilla, Ginger Peach and Maca Chocolate, it didn’t take long for the Southwest Region to pick up these high quality, organic, plant-based snacks in the Austin stores. Now their many different flavors of raw, vegan energy bars are sold throughout the region.

A mission-driven company, Bearded Brothers is a member of 1% for the Planet and also donates 1% to the Boneshaker Project, to help get kids active and healthy.

Caleb and Chris will use the funds from the LPLP to purchase a new flow wrapping machine and packaging, which will greatly enhance their capacity to serve more stores.
