About Us

Born in Australia.

Proudly Australian made and owned. Family and employee owned.

Built with passion.

We're focused on healthy people and a healthy planet, not just profit.

Based on science.

Formulated by health experts based on the latest research.

The big food companies continue to dial up the perceived goodness on their snacks but all they’re doing is health washing the market with dubious claims.

Creating genuinely healthy and tasty snacks takes time and money, and fund managers don’t like that. When we set out to make truly delicious health food with no artificial thickeners and fillers, no artificial sweeteners or sugar alcohols, and without using loads of dried fruit, people said ’no chance’.

After years of frustrating trials, the ‘a-ha’ moment came when we re-invented an ancient curing process. It created our first product, a jerky bar that was pure and not packed with sugar or preservatives. That was tender not tough. That tasted like a delicious roast.

Our next challenge, a sweet tasting bar, was even harder to create without artificial crap or too much sugar. We persisted and created our collagen bars based on nut butter. It seems too good to be true - bars that are 100% natural, low sugar and packed full of goodness and taste. Healthy snacks that are genuinely good for you. And we actually did it!

When you buy Chief products, you’re saying no to Big Food companies pretending to be healthy when they’re not. You’re helping us lead the way in the battle against the health destroying impacts of cheap, highly processed, artificial foods and too much sugar. You’re helping us prove we don't need all this crap in our food and there is a better way. You're also helping us do our bit to get Regenerative Farming on the map and support Aussie farmers transition to more sustainable and ideally regenerative practices.

Proudly Supporting Aussie Farmers.

We support Thankful For Farmers, helping farmers thrive and become more sustainable.
