Clif Bar & Co., a maker of nutritious and organic food and drinks, will build a new bakery in Twin Falls, Idaho, where the company will make Clif Bars and Clif Kid Zbars. The new bakery, which Clif Bar plans on building in an environmentally-friendly way by pursuing a LEED Silver certification, will be constructed on nearly 90 acres. The initial phase of the project will involve an estimated $90 million investment to build and when fully operational, will create 250 jobs in southern Idaho. The bakery is being designed to scale over time with the total capital investment potentially reaching $160 million, while providing up to 450 full-time employment opportunities.
“More than 20 years ago I started Clif Bar with the idea that we could make a better tasting and nutritious energy bar,” said Gary Erickson, Founder, Co-owner, and Co-chief Visionary Officer of Clif Bar & Co. “Today we’re taking the next step on our journey by announcing our purchase of land to build a bakery in Twin Falls.”
