It began with a 175-mile bicycle ride. Clif Bar is named after my father, Clifford, my childhood hero and companion throughout the Sierra Nevada Mountains. In 1990, I lived in a garage with my dog, skis, climbing gear, bicycle and 2 trumpets. The inspiration to create an energy bar occurred during a day-long, 175-mile bike ride with my friend Jay. We'd been gnawing on some "other" energy bars all day. Suddenly, despite my hunger, I could not take another bite. I thought, " I really could create a better bar than that!" That is the moment I now call "The Epiphany."
2 years later, after hundreds of hours in mother's kitchen, the CLIF Bar became a fact. Along with the mission to make a better-tasting energy bar was realized. Thanks, Mom! -- Gary Erickson
Most companies have one bottom line. In Clif Bar & Company, we are a private, family and employee-owned firm directed by five "base lines" or what we call our Five Aspirations:
Sustaining our Company: Building a resilient firm, investing for the long-term.
Sustaining our Brands: Building brands with ethics, quality and authenticity.
Maintaining our People: Working side-by-side, promoting each other, our Business is our people.
Sustaining our Communities: Promoting healthful, sustainable communities, locally and internationally.
Sustaining the World: Conserving and restoring our natural resources; developing a company that operates in harmony with all the laws of nature.
Much like the spokes of a wheel, so the Five Aspirations keep our business in equilibrium as we move forward.
In May 2012 Jodie Jones (JoJo) has been diagnosed with breast cancer. After Chemotherapy and radiation treatment she was left with Lymphedema, body aches, along with extreme sugar cravings. She needed badly for her own body to feel healthy and alive again. She tried lots of bites and simply could not locate anything which tasted great, satisfied her sweet tooth, and had been wholesome. She started experimenting in her very own kitchen. After much trial and error, she created the very first ever dark chocolate snack with added protein. It not only kicked off her sugar cravings, but it was delicious! And the entire family LOVED it! Shortly after she created her delicious healthier snack her son tried it, and then fell in love with it. He knew his mother had made something special. He experimented in CrossFit contests, in which they would quickly sell out. Then he went into yoga studios, local health food stores, neighborhood health clubs, and recently have looked on QVC.
