OUR STORY INGREDIENTS CERTIFIED ORGANIC

 

One of our core values at Skout Backcountry is ingredient transparency. We source the best organic ingredients on the planet, starting with our own backyard. When the climates best suited for certain crops do not exist in our region, we look beyond to find the highest quality ingredients.

Our commitment to using only a handful of the finest ingredients is something we take seriously, using no more than six ingredients in any of our bars.

The time and hard work that goes into our sourcing allows us to maintain an extremely clean ingredient list, and we wouldn’t want to miss a chance to boast about our array of incredible suppliers!
