Who is Kate’s Real Food?

Kate’s Real Food is a company founded by Kate Schade, active skier and busy body, who understood the necessity of having quick fuel on the go. From long hours hitting the slopes to heading to her night job, over the years Kate perfected her recipe for tasty organic energy bars known as Tram Bars. After sharing her bars with friends and receiving consistent pleas to start selling her recipe, by 2010 Kate made her Real Food company come to life. As of now, Kate has created 6+ mouthwatering flavors filled with wholesome, organic ingredients for people to grab when heading to their next adventure.
