Wilde was founded on the principle that meat snacks can be healthy without falling short on taste. In 2013, our founder, Jason Wright, was training for a marathon and was always trying to get the best of both worlds with his nutrition. Animal protein from his favorite jerky and complex nutrients from traditional nutrition bars all the while keeping it portable, tasty, and easy to digest. He went as far as wrapping energy bars in jerky which, without fail, would fall apart around mile 6. Struggling to find the perfect combination of meat protein, complex carbohydrates, and healthy fats, he reached out to his best friend Derek who happens to have a kitchen for an office. Derek, a food innovator and chef, loved the idea of creating portable healthy meat snacks. That summer they teamed up and made it their mission to create the best tasting, most innovative protein snacks possible using the best ingredients they could find. These days we hope we inspire you to live a little Wilder each day. Stay Wilde! Be Boldr!
