Clif Bar announces plans for new plant in Twin Falls

Here's a news item from the Associated Press: TWIN FALLS, Idaho (AP) — A California-based energy food bar company is planning to break ground on a new baking facility in Twin Falls early in 2015. Clif Bar company officials joined Gov. C.L. “Butch” Otter and Twin Falls leaders Thursday in announcing the plans. The company anticipates creating 250 jobs when the facility is up and running in late 2016. Company officials say they intend to invest $160 million into the new facility, with $90 million slotted for the first phase. The privately held company produces a variety of nutritional products targeting active and athletic consumers, and its flagship product is the Clif Bar, developed by company founder and outdoors enthusiast Gary Erickson. Shortly after the company announced its plans, the Twin Falls City Council approved a development deal.
