The Carnivore Bar was created because I saw a real need in the low carb, keto, and carnivore communities for a more reliable way to eat while traveling and on-the-go. I'm Phillip Meece, the creator of the Carnivore Bar, and I was a combat medic for the U.S. Army and served in Afghanistan. One of the most difficult parts of my deployment was lack of access to quality nutrition as most of the food we had access to was highly processed, high in sugar and carbs, and low in nutrients.
I joined the Army as the healthiest I’d ever been and returned fat, sick, and depleted from the poor diet and lifestyle overseas. After extensive research, testing, and health hacking, ultimately it was eating a zero-carb carnivore diet that helped me to heal. But I still faced the problem of accessing high-quality nutrition that was ready to eat whenever I was traveling or working long hours, and I knew that I wasn’t the only one with this need. Since I couldn’t find the product I desperately needed, I decided to make it and share it with others who needed it too.
I created The Carnivore Bar to be a battlefield-ready food capable of delivering high quality nutrition to the harshest conditions without any of the poisonous stabilizers and preservatives that plague modern shelf stable foods. This kind of product requires the utilization of modern technology and comes with a lot of startup costs, so I launched a Kickstarter in 2019 to raise funds in order to scale up production. This allowed me to move from making prototype bars by myself in my kitchen to a full-scale production facility, making a product that I could actually sell. Because of the carnivore community’s faith in the project, it brought the business into reality and I’d like to express my sincere gratitude to everyone who was a part of the Kickstarter. The Carnivore Bar wouldn’t exist today without their support.
With The Carnivore Bar you don’t need the support of a modern kitchen. Having such a high-quality, nutrient-dense travel food allows you to truly go anywhere you want to go. Thank you for your interest in The Carnivore Bar, we appreciate you being here and hope we can provide the nourishment to fuel your dreams, wherever they may take you.
