Balance Bar Creates First Rainforest Alliance Certified Energy Bar

Dark Line uses chocolate with positive environmental and social impacts

A new line of energy bars from Balance Bar Company will be the first to use Rainforest Alliance Certified chocolate.

The Rainforest Alliance Certified seal, easily recognized by its little green frog, shows that the cocoa used in Balance Bar’s Dark Line meets standards set by the Sustainable Agriculture Network or the Forest Stewardship Council.

The logo “assures consumers that the product they are purchasing has been grown and harvested using environmentally and socially responsible practices,” according to the Rainforest Alliance website. The company’s mission is to promote conservation and sustainable livelihoods through the transformation of land-use practices, business practices and consumer behavior.

Balance Bar’s Dark Line is now available at and will be in select retailers in December. The bars are available in three flavors: dark chocolate crunch, dark chocolate coconut and dark chocolate peanut.
