xact nutrition started with one idea. Surely we can make a better-tasting alternative to an energy gel. We wanted something more palatable, and our passion for food lead us to natural ingredients, which also is a great fit with our customer values. This project lead to xact nutrition’s 1st product, FRUIT2 energy bars for during effort, born from a marriage of our skills with our passions.  All 3 owner-founders have passion for doing things as well as they can, but each member of the team brings their unique perspective and abilities to the company.

A snowboarding fan, he fell in love with the mountains in the region which soon led to trail running and road running. Alister joined xact nutrition in 2017 bringing expertise in sales and business development to the company. A competitive runner, Alister competes on the road but prefers the trails, especially when in the company of Gaston, his trail-running hound.

FRUIT2 saw the light of day at the dawn of the trail running scene in Eastern Canada. After the feedback from runners on that cold autumn day, we knew we were onto something….

Since then xact nutrition has been developing unique sport nutrition products that are just as relevant to an 8-year old girl making the trip from school to a judo lesson, as they are to some of the ambassador athletes featured on this site. We have heard 1st hand how FRUIT3 bars resisted the extreme cold  temperatures in the Arctic2Atacama expedition and everyday a kid bites into a strawberry FRUIT2, shouts “Mummy! Daddy! I want to go and run and jump now!”
