Local companies are raising the bar — with fruits, nuts and seeds

The Washington Post
Nearly as ubiquitous is Ever Bar, which launched in 2014 and is already in 80 stores, boasts founder Alex Hempfield. The University of Maryland grad wanted to raise awareness of hemp.

“I was tired of the lies being told to the public,” Hempfield says. (And yes, that’s also why he legally changed his last name two years ago.)

He spent a year playing with 2,000 recipes to develop a bar that could showcase hemp’s nutritional qualities and taste great. The resulting Ever Bars are now “handcrafted” in Gaithersburg.
