About HERO

Want to build the next big brand in sports?
HERO fuels young athletes with innovative sports nutrition products. Our flagship product is the HERO bar: an all-natural nutrition bar that provides the optimal fuel for athletes aged 6-14.
Young athletes have become increasingly competitive, however their nutritional options have not kept up. One look at a concession stand tells you everything you need to know. Sports nutrition products for adults have exploded in popularity, but sports fuel designed to meet the unique nutritional needs of young athletes has been non-existent… Until now.
As former athletes and coaches, we decided to do something about the lack of nutritional options available to the largest segment of athletes in the country.
