We like to think of ourselves as chameleons. Whether you want thousands or millions of bars, you have our full attention. Regardless the number, each bar emerges perfectly shaped and with an amazing taste. With our specialized equipment we produce bars with many different product characteristics. Nice and soft nougat type bars, super crunchy, multi-layer, with caramel layer and sprinkled nuts, uncoated or with Belgian chocolate, you name it and we will make it. You can choose from 9 different coatings or no coating at all.
Our bite sizes are the solution for athletes who don’t want to eat a whole bar at once and prefer to dose their energy intake. No more sticky left-overs in a wrapper but smaller pieces that can easily be taken when needed. For recreational sportsmen, bite sizes in a bag offer the possibility to share easily. This emphasizes the social element of (recreational) sports.
Recipe for success
Our R&D people know that all of the elements that make the bar, must work together. This is why each ingredient we add to a recipe is carefully weighed. The value of a single ingredient is measured by what it adds to the whole. We constantly evaluate: what’s the contribution of this ingredient, what does it do to the taste and what is its effect on costs? Everything needs to be balanced. A bar may be enjoyed from the outside in, but the making of a beautiful bar begins with the inside.
We have shelves and shelves of ingredients that are waiting to be turned into your unique bar. However, having a wide range of ingredients doesn’t always translate into good taste. You can have a thousand flavors, but what you really need is taste. That’s why we have flavor specialists. These gifted people understand the perfect recipe that will deliver the exact experience you desire. They work with ingredients that have been sourced from around the world; ingredients that have traceable origins.
It is even possible to use your own unique ingredient or your own recipe if you have one. We will then evaluate whether or not this can be used in a bar. There are no wrong answers or bad ideas. Together we can take limitless options and turn them into your perfect bar. We are sure that whatever you throw our way can be turned into the right idea with the right ingredients, delivered in just the right way for your company.
Nowadays, the conscious consumer focuses more and more on health, well-being and environment. The bars developed by Hearthside can be made from 100% natural and organic ingredients. Also the use of Fair Trade (raw) materials gains importance. Hearthside cooperates with numerous suppliers of functional ingredients to bring you the best and most innovative ingredients. Besides that, we are equipped to produce gluten free, lactose free and halal. Furthermore we are looking at the possibilities for producing kosher.
We believe anything is possible until proven different. We are constantly studying on new ingredients and are picking up innovative challenges. By means of this experimentation we learn new things, which we then use to create your bar. Exploring is our passion and we never stop trying. We get energized about endless, delicious ideas. Our way of working is to approach you and your vision with an open mind.
