Origin Story

While Peter Maldonado was working as a personal trainer back in the aughts, he realized there was a serious need for high-quality, sustainably sourced protein for on-the-go consumption. Maldonado developed a deeper understanding of ingredients and the of benefits of organic and non-GMO food and paired that with his vast knowledge of health and fitness as a trainer. Empowered by this knowledge, Maldonado decided to team up with his friend Rashid Ali to create the healthiest meat snacks with the cleanest available ingredients and the best processing methods. Since they launched CHOMPS, their brand has grown significantly by partnering with communities that are Whole30 or Keto friendly and partnering with retail locations like Whole Foos and Trader Joes. CHOMPS continues to grow, helping their customers make healthier choices in their kitchen or on-the-go.

The Science & The Soul

The Science

CHOMPS only uses the best ingredients: grass-fed beef from Tasmania and venison from New Zealand. Their cattle have superior nutrition by grazing on fresh, green grass all throughout the year. Additionally, CHOMPS is extremely cognizant of each ingredient that goes into its stick. To ensure maximum nutritional value, CHOMPS is made with zero sugar, zero artificial preservatives, zero nitrates, and zero fillers. The regular sized sticks have 9-10g of protein and range between 60 – 100 calories, while mini “Chomplings” have 4-5g of protein and 30-40 calories. All CHOMPS meat sticks have a 13 month shelf life and are free of the top 8 allergens wheat, dairy, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, soy, fish & shellfish.

The Soul

From the ingredients to the packaging, CHOMPS is mindful of its impact on the planet every step of the way. CHOMPS practices environmental stewardship and ethical treatment of animals, working only with farmers who produce beef that is humanely and ethically raised and treated. CHOMPS visits all of its farms individually to make certain that animals are treated properly, grass and soil conditions meet CHOMP standards, and there are carbon sequestration practices in place. Needless to say, CHOMPS is unwaveringly committed to creating a nutritious treat that is ethically and responsibly made.
