The bars come in three specific varieties (two bars per variety) that provide ancient nutrition in a modern and convenient way:

Mediterra® bars are packaged vertically, requiring minimal retail shelf space. The packaging design reflects the purity of the ingredients with a contemporary aesthetic that will catch a consumer's eye.

After moving to New York from his homeland of Greece, Lavidas created Mediterra® after being inspired by his memories of delicious and healthy Mediterranean meals shared in the warmth of family and friends. He became passionate about adapting the traditional Mediterranean diet to meet the fast pace of modern life.

Less of a diet and more of a lifestyle, the Mediterranean Diet is a way of eating based on the traditional foods (and drinks) of the countries surrounding the Mediterranean Sea. There's an emphasis on consuming more whole grains, fruits, greens and healthy fats, and less meat and sweets. It has been studied and noted by scores of leading scientists as one of the healthiest lifestyles in the world. The new Mediterra® bars adhere to this philosophy.
