We also work with third parties that use tracking technologies on our Website in order to provide tailored advertisements on our behalf and on behalf of other advertisers across the Internet. These companies may collect information about your activity on our sites and your interaction with us or our advertising and other communications, and use this information to determine which ads you see on third party websites and applications.

We also use a feature of your browser called a cookie to assign identification to your computer that may be placed by us or a third party with whom we partner. Cookies allow us to better understand your preferences and personalize the content on our Website and marketing to give you a better overall shopping experience. The unique user ID contained within your cookie automatically identifies your computer (but not you) to our servers every time you visit our Website. Cookies by themselves cannot be used to find out the identity of any user, but may be combined with identity information in our log files. You can turn off the cookie feature by using your browser preference options, but you may not be able to utilize some of the features or services on our Website properly. Current versions of many web browsers offer enhanced user controls for the placement and duration of cookies.

We also collect information through the use of “pixel tags” on our Website and in email messages, and other marketing or advertising materials (e.g., Facebook ads) we may send to you that may be placed by us or a third party with whom we partner. Pixel tags, also known as “Web beacons,” are tiny graphic files, not visible to the human eye, that are included in HTML-encoded email messages. When such a message is opened in an HTML-capable email program, the recipient’s computer will access our server to retrieve the pixel tag file, allowing us to record and store, along with the recipient’s email address, the date and time the recipient viewed the email message, the fact that the recipient’s email program is capable of receiving HTML-encoded email, and other standard logging information. The pixel tag may also see or read cookies. We may use pixel tags in order to measure and understand traffic better, to track visitor behavior to improve user experience, and for tracking promotional and marketing campaign response, among others. You can disable the pixel tag feature by changing your browser settings to omit images and disable Javascript; or there are commercial software packages available that can omit pixel tags and most advertisements.

Your California Privacy Rights:

Pursuant to California Civil Code Section 1798.83, if you are a California resident, you have the right to request and receive, once a year and free of charge, information about third parties to whom we have disclosed certain types of personal information (if any) about you for their direct marketing purposes in the prior calendar year, and a description of the categories of personal information shared. To make such a request, please send an email to and please include the phrase “California Privacy Request” in the subject line, the domain name of the website you are inquiring about, along with your name, address and email address. At our option, we may respond to such requests by providing instructions about how our users can exercise their options to prevent our disclosure of personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. These instructions can be located above in the section of our Privacy Policy titled “Opt-Out Policy and Questions.”



At various points and pages on our Websites, you may be able to access or utilize tools and/or services offered by or in conjunction with third parties, including tools and services in connection with third-party “social media” and other sites that would allow personal information to be transferred to such third parties (for example, Facebook Connect, Instagram, and Twitter, etc.). These third parties have separate data collection and privacy practices independent from ours, and thus we cannot be responsible for their policies or activities. Please contact those third parties directly if you have questions about their privacy policies.

Additionally, on our Website and in communication with you, we may include links or referrals to businesses and websites operated by our business partners, affiliates, advertisers, and others. These third parties have separate data collection and privacy practices independent from ours, and thus we cannot be responsible for their policies or activities.

By visiting any of our Web ites and providing us with data, you acknowledge and agree that your personal information may be processed for the purposes identified in this policy.

Our Affiliated Companies and third party service providers may also be located outside of your jurisdiction. By providing us with your data, you consent to the transfer of such data. As an example, if you are located in Canada and your transaction is processed by a payment gateway located in the United States, then your personal information used in completing that transaction may be subject to disclosure under United States legislation, including the Patriot Act.

Empowering The Ladies

At Empact, we’re all about fueling ambitious go-getters who are set on making a mark. From the boardroom to the classroom, and black tie dresses to yoga pants, we’re shattering glass ceilings and making it our mission to empower the inner GOAL Digger inside every woman. It’s our goal to inspire healthy choices and make an impact on the lives of women everywhere, helping you find the best version of yourself along the way.

Breaking Through The Noise

The bar aisle is a crowded and noisy place. Yet among it all, there’s nothing that speaks to women. Chalky, high in sugar, chemical-laden, and mainly geared towards men, it’s no wonder most bars end up half-eaten and folded over in our purse or gym bag. At Empact, we’ve made it our goal to put an end to this nonsense.

Don't let the Polka Dots fool you. We mean business.


With an ingredients list you can actually pronounce, Empact bars take the guesswork out of healthy, delicious snacking. We pack each snack and shakes full of nutrient-dense, protein-rich, mouthwatering deliciousness, and make no compromise on the quality of our ingredients. We’re talking high quality ingredients that won't leave you feeling bloated. Plus, our snacks taste amazing!

Why We Do What We Do...

Ladies, This One's For You

  • Practice Your Core Values

    Practice Your Core Values

    At Empact, we believe empowering women makes the world a better place, and this belief permeates everything we do. From our ingredients and core values, to the way we structure our business, it’s our goal to be intentional about appreciating, recognizing, and taking into account what women want and need. 

  • Stand Out From The Rest

    Stand Out From The Rest

    For us, this meant saying sayonara to the status quo surrounding the energy bar aisle, and delivering a healthy, delicious protein bar that’s unapologetically made just for women. A snack and go-to energy source that helps fuel your inner-goal digger, helping you get closer to achieving the impact you’re set on making.

  • Build A Community

    Build A Community

    At the end of the day, it’s our hope that Empact represents a movement and community that helps you and every women be the best versions of themselves.

Meet the Empact Team

Melonie DeRose

Founder & Chief Goal Digger

A Texas-born lady boss who’s not afraid to dance her heart out (Britney Spears-style), Melonie is our resident Chief Goal Digger. ‘Hustle’ and ‘Be Kind’ are her personal mottos, and she’s convinced amazing things happen when you combine the two. A once-upon-a-time corporate and securities attorney at an international law firm, she puts the many lessons she learned about shattering glass ceilings and excelling in traditionally male-driven arenas to use on the daily. Whatever you’re planning, she’s in (bonus points for anything involving Vegas, dance parties, lattes, or heels). She can now be found living out her dream of building a company that empowers the girl boss in women everywhere, slinging insanely tasty, polka-dot-wrapped protein bars, and loving life with her husband and three beautiful girls.

IMPORTANT FACT: Melonie’s fear of spiders once caused her to eject out of a moving vehicle in the middle of a Parisian roundabout. Apparently, not everything is bigger in Texas.

Zeke DeRose

Founder & Chief Gentleman

An L.A. boy who once “rocked” frosted tips, Zeke’s now rocking the title of Chief Gentleman here at Empact. As Melonie’s hubbie and father to their two daughters, helping his girls feel confident, empowered and loved has been his business before it was his business. Zeke’s a jack of many trades: He’s swung a hammer as a construction worker, drove race cars (mainly to impress Melonie), had a stint as a high school teacher and a litigator, and eventually got in touch with his feminine side after teaming up with Melonie to run a health and fitness company for women (and now, a protein bar company for women). The dude loves NASCAR, can play a mean jazz sax, and is addicted to lattes. If you ask him about his most important job, he’ll be quick to tell you it’s raising his two girls to be strong, independent, kind humans who always have someone who believes in them.

IMPORTANT FACT: Best part of his job…telling his kids that their mom is his boss.


As we expand and grow, not only will the organizations we work with expand, but we will be able to empower + impact more and more women.

Right now, we work with two amazing organizations that help women on a daily basis. One is the Women's Bean Project, where we contribute to helping women find employment. They have a 6-month program with a 100% job-placement rate, where women learn job and life skills.

The second amazing organization helps girls that fall through the cracks of the foster-care system. Among other things, it's a home for girls 10-17 who are in need of therapeutic residential care and specialized professional services. Often times these girls turn 18 without anything on their resume and lack essential communication and job skills. We’re working to help change that.
