Despite big growth in snack sales, Clif Bar not for sale
Clif Bar thinks life is sweeter on its own.
Even as large food manufacturers are snatching up popular natural and organic food brands, the Emeryville company is staying on its own course. In 2014, General Mills paid $820 million to acquire Annie’s Inc. in Berkeley. A year earlier Campbell Soup Co. acquired Plum Organics in Emeryville. The baby food maker was actually founded by an alumnus of Clif Bar.
