Gratitude From a New Mother -- and Her Son

To everyone at Organic Food Bar:

Three days ago, I gave birth to a beautiful baby boy named Turner. His was a home-birth accompanied by midwives—and without drugs. It was a sublime, transcendent experience.

Since Turner arrived, I—like all new mothers—have been totally engrossed in Turner’s care. I am in my “zone” of breastfeeding every two hours! I have the most supportive and wonderful husband in the world who is handling everything around me, so that I may focus on bringing Turner into this world in the best possible way. I believe this new generation is poised to rescue our planet from many of the ills it currently faces. We must protect this generation, nurture them and do everything we can to ensure their health and prosperity.

This is the first time I have “come up for air” so to speak—and I felt compelled to write this letter. Here’s why:

As a new mother, I want only the very best for my son. I ate as healthfully as possible during my pregnancy, and now that I am breastfeeding, I am maintaining an adherence to a stellar diet. Since Turner was born, I have eaten two Organic Food Bar - Active Greens each day. For one, they are completely convenient. It’s so nice to grab a bar and have it work my organic tea in the morning. And more importantly: I believe, after much research, that Organic Food Bars—and specifically this variety, the Active Greens—are the healthiest food in a wrapper that I can eat. Since what I eat is directly sent to Turner, I feel good knowing that I am giving him the very best nature has to offer.

I wanted to share this picture with everyone at Organic Food Bar, because I am deeply grateful to you all. Reading the ingredients on the Organic Food Bar - Active Greens, I can only imagine the extraordinary lengths to which you must go to ensure the highest-quality bar in the world. The world owes you a debt of gratitude.

From the bottom of my heart, I thank you. And, Turner thanks you. :-)

With deepest gratitude,

Alexandra Harr

An Uncommon Commitment -- to You

These days, it seems as if brands spend more time marketing to you than delivering for you. They extol their virtues and tell you how special their product is without putting the necessary action behind those words.

For eight years, Organic Food Bar has maintained an uncommon commitment to the finest ingredients, the finest production -- and the finest customer service.

We recently received a heartfelt note from a solider who relies on Organic Food Bar for on-the-go nutrition. He deeply appreciates our making sure he has what he needs -- wherever he is in the world! Here is the actual email string below. We believe it is a testament to the fact that Organic Food Bar doesn't just talk about how committed we are to your health. We back it up, with action, each and every day, because you and your health are what matter most to us. That is the Organic Food Bar way.



I wanted to write to let you know that I did receive my order in the mail at my deployed location (just in time before I moved on!). I did want to say thank you again for the extra effort in getting my order mailed out to me. It does mean a lot for those of us deployed to have companies such as Organic Food Bar not only give us incredible discounts, but also go to great lengths to get the products out to our otherwise "weird" locations. I look forward to doing business with you and your company again.

Very Respectfully,
