Certified, Sustainably Grown Cocoa
In 2011, we began collaborating with the Rainforest Alliance, an international nonprofit organization, to source 100 percent of the cocoa ingredients in CLIF® Bar energy bars, our flagship product, from Rainforest Alliance Certified™ farms. Rainforest Alliance Certified™ farms support a healthy environment, promote the well-being of workers and their communities and employ productive, efficient farm methods. Farmworkers benefit from safe working conditions, enjoy dignified housing and medical care, and access to schools for their children. Certification helps to ensure the protection of ecosystems, including wildlife habitat, water and soil.
Today, 100 percent of the cocoa ingredients in CLIF Bars are from Rainforest Alliance Certified farms. CLIF Bars with chocolate now carry the Rainforest Alliance Certified seal on the wrapper.
But we’re not stopping with CLIF Bars alone. By 2015 our goal is for all of the cocoa we purchase to be either organic, or from Rainforest Alliance Certified farms. When that happens, you’ll see the Rainforest Alliance Certified seal on the wrappers of CLIF Builder’s® and LUNA® Protein, in addition to CLIF Bar.
By shopping for products bearing the Rainforest Alliance Certified seal, you can support a healthy environment and help to improve the quality of life for farm families. To learn more about the Rainforest Alliance, visit www.rainforest-alliance.org.
