Our founder, Dawn, lived on energy bars for years. She believed they were the “healthy” choice for convenient snacks in her busy life of travel. But as Dawn began to educate herself about nutrition and clean healthy living, she realized the standard energy bar packed with chemical additives and unwanted ingredients were not her best choice.
She made it her mission to develop a clean, whole food, delicious tasting bar that would leave her feeling nourished and satisfied.
OHi IS BORN
After months of experimenting and perfecting her nutritious AND delicious blend, Dawn began selling her bars at local Maui farmers markets. The bars quickly grew in popularity and soon hit stores in Hawaii as the bRAW Superfood Bar. They soon became so popular their demand expanded to the mainland. To represent her beginnings Dawn wanted to bring a piece of Hawaii with her on this journey and create a name that fit her mission. Thus OHi Food Co. and the OHi Superfood Bar were born. OHi in Hawaiian means “To Gather” and in Maori means “To Rise, To Elevate”.
Here at OHi we are passionate about providing nourishment to our communities and ‘Ohana by staying conscious and transparent about the ingredients we choose to put into your food.
We as a company are committed to elevating those around us through simple food and simple kindness so we can all rise, all shine, and all thrive!
At OHi, our mission is to help our community thrive by providing simple nutrition. We believe that by fueling your body you fuel your spirit too. When you’re good to yourself, you’re able to elevate others. We are excited to sponsor Briana Cope, professional surfer from the island of Kauai and help her stay healthy on-the-go.

MEET BRIANNA COPE
Aloha! My name is Brianna Cope, I’m a professional surfer from the beautiful island of Kauai! I was born and raised on the South Shore of Kauai. Growing up near the ocean, I fell in love with its beauty and power. I started surfing at the age of 4. My older sister Gabrielle and my dad taught me how to surf on a longboard. They would push me into waves, and from that day on I was hooked. I love how free and alive I feel in the ocean. It is such an indescribable feeling to be able to ride a wave, always thinking how special it is that you can only ride that wave once, you will never get the same wave again!
I started competing at the age of 10, winning my first surf competition when I was 11 years old and from that moment I knew I wanted to be a professional surfer. I have been competing ever since. I am currently competing on the World Surf League qualifying series, traveling across the globe for competitions! My ultimate goal is to be on the world tour. I have always been a firm believer of “where there is a will there is a way”. In 2018 I came out with a documentary called “ Surfing to Cope” which is now touring around the U.S with film tours like the Women’s Adventure Sports Film tour. Check out the trailer here!
I am very excited to be joining the OHI ohana! Health and wellness is something I have always been very passionate about. It is really special joining such a health conscious company that started in Hawaii. Hawaii is a special place to me and its amazing to be a apart of the OHi brand – as they know all about the aloha spirit! I am always on the go and it is super important to have a go to snack! Whether its surf sessions, on the plane, traveling, or before and after workouts, OHi always keeps me fueled and satisfied 🙂

When not on the water, how do you stay active and fit?
When I’m not in the water I stay active by working out at least 5 days a week. I spend a lot of time in the gym working on my strength and conditioning!
What is your favorite form of exercise (besides surfing)?
As a surfer, balance, strength and flexibility is so important. It plays a crucial role in my sport. Squatting and weight training has really improved my surfing ability. Being able to have a low center of gravity and a strong core makes my surfing more powerful and stable!
What advice do you have for people wanting to kick-start a healthy lifestyle?
My advice for people wanting to kick-start a healthy lifestyle is to start with one goal per week till it becomes a lifestyle habit. Whether its finding healthier food options like an OHi Bar or exercising/activities they enjoy doing. 🙂
