We're Marshall and Elliott...two brothers that definitely don't do well with the gluten. We started The GFB way back in 2010 in what we consider the stone age of gluten-free foods. At the time there simply was not a good-tasting, high-protein, gluten-free nutrition bar. We definitely needed one to get by so we decided to make one ourselves and The GFB was born.
Since then, gluten-free foods have come a long way, but we've stayed true to our roots...making stuff that tastes really good and is actually good for you. It seems that our customers have connected with our mission as we have managed to take this business from making bars in a tiny shared gluten-free kitchen into employing a local work force making thousands of our products every day, in our own 28,000 certified gluten-free facility.
One thing that we do very differently than many other food manufacturers is that we run our own food production facility. It's extremely challenging, but we've gotten good at it and it something that we're really proud of for several reasons:
From the very beginning, we've always felt strongly that if we're going to create a company, we should do be doing things the right way. As we've evolved, we've come to learn that it's called building a sustainable business with a triple bottom line of: people, planet, profits. We've taken it a step further and are actually a Certified B Corp.
