OWL stands for Original Wholesome and Local. OWL Foods is a woman owned Vermont business founded in 2011. They handcraft energy bars in small batches using whole food ingredients that are gluten, dairy, and soy free. They choose not to use palm oil, additives, preservatives, or synthetic powders or fillers in their energy bars. Bars are sweetened with either local raw honey or pure Vermont maple syrup and have a soft, chewy texture and lively fresh flavor. Their commercial kitchen is located in Brattleboro, VT where all aspects of production - from creating recipes, to producing, wrapping, and shipping energy bars - take place. They are passionate about healthy food and creating a product that facilitates an active lifestyle. They are intentional and mindful about the growth of their business, choosing to work with partners who value where your food comes from, high quality ingredients, and supporting local business and local food systems.
