Bobby, a native New Yorker and die-hard Yankees fan, enjoys leisure time with his family, cooking, that first sip of fresh, hot coffee in the morning, landscaping, walking his dog, home improvement projects, vintage tube radio restorations, and producing original music in his home recording studio. Bobby meditates by thumbing thru the dusty dollar vinyl bins at his local record stores.

Demetria is a native of Northern California and has been a happy California girl for X amount of years!!! Ha! Did you think I would reveal that? She is a huge Oakland Raider fan and a nervous football mom. “When I watch my son playing football in the Pop Warner games, it makes me so nervous, but he’s a strong kid so I look forward to his debut on the Raiders team!” But wait! There’s more! It has been said that she can rock a microphone on stage as well as a phone call at her desk with reckless abandon, passion and a wealth of knowledge and talent. Her extraordinarily friendly voice is waiting to answer your questions and address your concerns.
Tara has always found nutrition fun and interesting! At age eight Tara was popular for her lunchtime trades of chips and twinkies for a good piece of fruit or an occasional homemade cupcake. Tara has long been an advocate for healthy and enjoyable food and delights in sipping coffee at local coffee houses, exploring new neighborhood restaurants in San Francisco, and visiting local farmers markets. She is known to day dream about Montana, Italy, and the Red Sox’s world series win while running and biking the trails or while getting all twisted in her favorite yoga class.

As a food company, food safety is a top priority for our company. We have numerous safety procedures which include extensive screening of all vendors and third party audits to ensure all vendors are complying with our stringent guidelines.

Offering nutritious food is what we do, and like you, we care about what we put in our bodies.
|Can your wrappers be upcycled?|
Yes, our food wrappers can be upcyclyed (except CLIF Kid Organic Zfruit and CLIF SHOT® foods). To help reuse and recycling of our wrappers, we have partnered with TerraCycle to sponsor their wrapper brigade to encourage and incentivize energy bar wrapper recycling.
At the same time, we are continually striving and challenging our suppliers to develop a wrapper that is both environmentally sound and protective of our food, there just simply isn’t the technology we feel is up to the standards we need.
TerraCycle Brigades are grassroots, environmental education programs sponsored by proactive companies such as Clif Bar. TerraCycle partners with companies to create waste stream solutions through “upcycling,” or creating usable goods from items previously considered waste. Participants in the Clif Bar/TerraCycle Energy Wrapper Brigade may designate themselves if they are a school or nonprofit organization, or select another charity, to receive money for each energy bar wrapper they collect. Wrappers are made into goods such as backpacks.
