REDCON1 is best known for its high-performing and award-winning sports nutrition supplements. By industry insiders, REDCON1 is known for being the fastest growing sports nutrition company in history. But, by the company founders, employees and others close to the brand, REDCON1 is known as a mission driven company with philanthropy and charity at its core.
"THE HIGHEST STATE OF READINESS has been our mantra since we started the brand four years ago, but it now feels more like a true battle cry that the entire world can get behind. In these uncertain times we are currently facing, be it for ourselves, our families, our neighbors and our fellow humans, we must all be at our highest state of readiness to face the challenges that we now experience on any given day. The nurses, doctors and first responders are on the frontline of this war with an invisible enemy and we want to do our part in helping them remain fueled, healthy and at their highest state of readiness as they put themselves in harm's way for the rest of us."
— Eric Hart, President of REDCON1
As an essential business, REDCON1 sees it as its responsibility to provide help the best way it knows how: by providing nutritious, convenient, ready to eat protein products to people and groups that are working tirelessly to keep communities safe and well. REDCON1's MRE® Bars are quick and convenient, nutrient dense meal-replacement bars with 20g of protein from whole food sources such as beef, chicken, and salmon protein. The brand's B.A.R. Breakfast at the Ready® provide a protein-packed breakfast or snack with 20g of whey protein with flavors inspired by popular breakfast cereals.
"One thing is for certain, the groups of people that put their lives on the line, every single day, to keep us safe and fight for our health and wellness have embodied THE HIGHEST STATE OF READINESS more than any group of people I've ever seen. Of course, I'm talking about the doctors, nurses, first responders and other organizations that are working around the clock to help the community, despite the threats they personally may face." – Eric Hart, President of REDCON1
REDCON1's COVID-related local donations will continue. The company is prepared to fulfill requests from the Delray Medical for additional bars for its more than 1,000 staff members and is working on donating 5,760 bars to Boca Regional Hospital. REDCON1 is also seeking out other hospitals, police, testing facilities and first responders that are in need.
In addition, this weekend REDCON1 is running a BOGO deal on its website www.redcon1.com and will donate an equal amount of MRE® Bars or B.A.R. Breakfast at the Ready® bars that are purchased. Buy a bar, and REDCON1 will donate a bar. Buy a box of bars, and REDCON1 will donate a box of bars.
