Natural Products Expo West is one of the most exciting and important trade shows of the year for our team here at Rise Bar. It’s where everyone in the natural products industry meets to discuss business and show their new product lines. This year there was a record-breaking number of 85,000 attendees and over 3,200 exhibitors. The event is located right in our backyard in Anaheim, CA (a quick 20 minute drive from our office and production facility). We were able to make a fresh batch of Rise Bars on Wednesday and drive them right over to the event on Thursday. It doesn’t get any fresher than that!
The whole Rise Bar team was in attendance (after all, it’s our biggest show of the year!) and we had all of our whey protein and plant-based protein bars available for sampling as well as a sneak peek at our newest flavors - Blueberry Coconut and Coffee! We connected with nutritionists, athletes, influencers, and health enthusiasts who share the same passion for simple real ingredients as we do. We aim to provide the simplest bar around whatever your dietary needs.
Sam from our Influencer Relations team had a great time meeting with our influencer friends and ambassadors including:
- Berry Fitt
- Dr. Majestic MD (she’s all about plant-based Chocolatey Coconut)
- Simple Green Smoothies
- Greg Lutzka
- Kale and Carrot Sticks
- Nicole the Nomad
- JJ Beasley
- Feed The Bitch
- Real Food with Gratitude
- Coco’s Paleo Kitchen
- Good Saint
We loved meeting all of you. Thank you to everyone who stopped by our booth. You motivate us to continue to create fresh simple bars with clean ingredients, so we can all rise together stronger.
