The New Plant Based Hempy Bar

The Best New Zealand Made, Plant Based Snack Bar

FoodStarter Competition Winner 2018 - The Brothers Green - Hempy Bar

The Brothers BradMichael and Brendon are currently developing the healthiest kids snack bar to ever be sold in New Zealand Supermarkets. We got the opportunity to do this after winning the first ever Foodstarter competition. 

Kiwi Kids GardeningThe Foodstarter is a competition put on by Foodstuffs, Ministry of Awesome, Blinc Innovation, Strategy Creative, Food South and Christchurch NZ which aims to attract food manufacturing back to our wonderful Garden City of Ōtautahi. It is a competition looking for the most innovative foodies across the country - we are stoked to be a part of it. The Brothers Green was born after we won the competition and we are now tasked with creating a nutritious New Zealand made Hemp snack bar for Kiwi kids.

The Hempy Bar is a scrumptious plant based, low sugar bar using natural flavours and ingredients from local New Zealand business' such as Viberi and Blue CoconutIt’s like a natural NZ protein bar for kids!





  • Kia Ora Kate,
    Thanks so much for your support and glad you enjoyed the taste!
    We do want to improve kids health in NZ, and we had to make some huge pricing decisions based on that goal. Good healthy food is expensive in our society – we wish this wasn’t the case.
    Choosing NZ grown hemp seed over Canadian meant our costs for that ingredient alone almost doubled. Having another goal of looking after Papatuanuku complicates our pricing also. We chose to ditch plastic and embrace technology aimed at less waste. Our costs for packaging tripled.
    We hope everybody can be understanding of this as we wait for others in New Zealand and beyond to make these same decisions, and influence a positive change.

  • Tried these bars a day ago …. very tasty …alas I have ordered some , however they are horrendously expensive. If you want to keep NZ kids healthy you will have to do better on price as this will only be available to the upper market . Just saying .

  • Where can you buy hempy bars from and wat favours

  • I love Hempy Bars. They taste good, but not so good that I want to eat a whole box. I guess this is because they don’t have too much sugar. I cut them in half and always have one in my gym bag so I have a snack that will keep me from buying a harmful snack. Well done, keep it up.
