I need quality food for long days on my job. I have very little time when I take a brake as I c heck out conditions, check out the route, gear up and last take of my client. So I need easy and good food for my long endurance days. PROBAR® has it all small light weight and quality food for me. Second when a Client "bonks" does not have enough energy I help with some "bolt" or any other product to get us moving.

So My goal is very simple, High quality, dense or small, good tasting and easy eating food. I am always on the move and need to get the job done while I have to be strong and focused. I make one mistake and I will be missing for dinner, literally!

The big think is efficiency, Myself and PROBAR®! I need to move fast and fueled up and PROBAR® can provide all of this for me.
