Drew welcomes the owner and founder of DNX bars, John Rooney. John started DNX Bars to provide a nutritious option for people who are on the go. John spent 20 years running his own business and not paying attention to his wellness. At age 50, when he sold his company, he decided he was going to turn his lifestyle on its head and start being good to himself. John found getting into the ‘Meat Snack’ industry was fairly simple but making real food to nourish people was a bit more challenging. It was a challenge he was willing to accept. When John realized government nutrition labels were a farce, he was determined to get people and food manufacturers involved in DNX’s Declaration of Transparency to educate people of a product's true ingredients, without being deceived by jargon and workarounds.
