Certified Sustainable

We started with our first purchase of organic ingredients back in 2002. In 2011, we began collaborating with the Rainforest Alliance to source 100% 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 ensure efficient farm methods. Farm workers benefit from safe working conditions, enjoy dignified housing and medical care, and access to schools for their children. Certification ensures the protection of ecosystems, including wildlife habitat, water and soil.

By shopping for products bearing the Rainforest Alliance Certified seal, consumers can support a healthy environment and help to improve the quality of life for farm families.

The Rainforest Alliance is an international nonprofit organization that works to conserve biodiversity and ensure sustainable livelihoods by transforming land-use practices, business practices and consumer behavior. To learn more about the Rainforest Alliance, visit
