Bar None Foods was founded in 2012 in Portland, Oregon with the goal of offering clean, wholesome, and allergen-free food products. We source our ingredients locally or regionally whenever possible, and are pleased to say that 95% of the ingredients in our new recipe are grown in North America (89% from USA).
Our products appeal to those who value clean food, those looking for sustaining and well-rounded nutrition, and those seeking out allergen-free alternatives.
Our nutrition bars are naturally gluten-free, but are made in a facility that also processes wheat, soy, dairy and nut products. During production, strict adherence to cleanliness and monitoring of the environment is maintained to ensure that we meet the requirements of our certifying agencies.
A Brief History:
Owner and founder Betsy Langton was inspired to start her own small business after completing an internship with the Oregon Department of Corrections. During this experience she learned that a person should not be defined by the worst mistakes they’ve made. This led to her inquiry into the Restorative Justice movement and how she could contribute to its application within the prison system.
What is Restorative Justice?
The Restorative Justice process brings together victim, offender, and the community to promote healing and encourage reconciliation. Providing opportunities for dialogue, negotiation, and understanding can lead to a renewed sense of community and closure for all those involved.
Bar None Foods supports the Insight Prison Project (IPP) and their mission to transform the lives of those impacted by crime and incarceration. We donate a percentage of our profit to the IPP and hope to bring more awareness to the concept of Restorative Justice.
