Kashi Nut Butter Bars, Chewy, Salted Caramel Pecan

Non GMO Project verified. nongmoproject.org. Transitional certified by QAI. Made with almond butter. Gluten free. New! These bars are not organic. But hang on. That's the point. They're Certified Transitional, an initiative we helped created to support farmers transitioning their conventional farmland to organic. Why do they need support? Well, farmers have to go through a three-year transition period to be able to apply for USDA Organic Certification. That's three years of implementing organic practices on their land without a return on their investment immediately, so they're less motivated to make the change. So to source the almond butter in these delicious bars, we called our friend Richard who lives just north of us in Turlock, California. Richard is a second-generation almond farmer who believes that having healthy soil is better for the earth today and in the future. And when you buy these bars, you're helping to support Richard and all the transitional farmers who are nurturing a better tomorrow by moving food forward one acre at a time.
