The Outdoor Provisions Story

If you’ve ever been on a really long bike ride, (could be a long run, walk or paddle) one that feels like it has gone on forever, you’ll know that the conversation with your fellow rider can drift. High on fresh air you pass the time discussing life plans, dinner plans, places you’d like to visit, regrets, or businesses you could set up.

If the conversation drifts with the right person, you might just end up acting on one of these whims and before you know it, you’ve set up a company together. That’s paraphrasing, but isn’t a million miles from how Outdoor Provisions came about.

Going the wrong way trying to impress Dan from Cadence Images

It was clear from sometime during that ride that the newly formed Outdoor Provisions would always be intrinsically linked to the outdoors. In keeping with that, we established a set of signposts to keep us on the path we set out on. If we’re not addressing these three things, we’re going the wrong way.

#1 For use outdoors

Our offerings will be developed specifically for use outside and must be fit for that environment. For our first range of all natural energy bars this means dependable, portable and tasty.

#2 Provision with a conscience

We will always be as low impact as possible, considered and progressive - from product, to packaging, to process. This means transparency and accepting that things wont be perfect, but can always be improved.

#3 Enable and protect

We established Outdoor Provisions on the proviso that it would allow us to do our bit towards preserving the outdoors. We intend to use profits to give back to organisations and initiatives that protect and enable it - it’s a price we are happy to pay.

Testing in Ennerdale, the Lakes

We’re for the fresh-air-heads

That’s us, essentially. Not the fastest or leanest or slaves to only one pursuit, but compelled to be out of doors, amongst it, with dirt under our fingernails and a horizon in sight. Seeking to tip the work life balance in favour of life, in favour of sport, sweat and heightened heart rates.

We’re for the fresh-air-heads.

Loading up with precious cargo for a first outing

Dependable. Portable. Tasty.

Dependable means an all natural bar that you can rely on for a balanced release of energy, that's easy to digest and made in the UK.

Portable is a product you can’t not take with you. One that travels well and arrives at its point of need intact, fresh and ready to sustain, in a wrapper that can be added to your household compost.

Tasty is unique flavours inspired by UK national parks and that aren’t sickly sweet, with a texture suited to being eaten during activity.

Let’s take this outside

Is this a serving suggestion? Or an invitation to have a bit of a scrap? More like an instruction of use really, and where we’d rather be. We’re launching Outdoor Provisions with energy bars but have visions that go much further - watch this space.
