Clif Bar & Company Begins Construction On Twin Falls, Idaho, Baking Facility

Clif Bar & Company, a leading maker of nutritious and organic foods and drinks, began construction on its first owned and operated bakery, the Clif Bar Baking Company, in Twin Falls, Idaho.

Its new 275,000-square-foot bakery will help the company meet growing demand for organic energy and nutrition bars. Construction on the bakery will begin in April, and the bakery plans to open in spring 2016. When fully operational, the bakery will create more than 200 jobs in the community.

“Beautifully designed, sustainable and people-inspired, the Twin Falls bakery showcases our company values and our desire to serve as a community partner to Twin Falls,” said Clif Bar & Company CEO, Kevin Cleary.“When operating, the new bakery will help us continue to craft delicious, organic food that feeds and inspires adventure.”

The bakery will utilize state-of-the-art processes and packaging systems, natural light, LED lighting and a Cool Roof to maximize energy efficiency and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Aiming to achieve the highest possible LEED certification, the building will also capture heat that would have otherwise been wasted and use it to make CLIF Bars and CLIF Kid Z Bars.

“The new bakery will be a great place to work and we are thankful to Clif Bar & Company for bringing more than 200 jobs to Idaho,” said Idaho Governor C.L. “Butch” Otter. “This is huge for our state’s economy and we are excited to have Clif Bar& Company as a new member of our business community.”
