Skout Organic has been inspired by the wilderness of the Pacific Northwest from day one. The company uses a winning combination of natural ingredients and flavors to craft snacks you have to taste to believe.
The History of Skout Organic
Skout Organic was founded in 2008 by Jason Pastega, a native of Portland, Oregon, with a love of all things outdoors. Pastega was on a hike with his dog, Skout, when he took a closer look at the energy bars he had been eating. The nutrition information and ingredient list were dismaying.
Inspired, Pastega began work to create his own bar in his kitchen, using only simple, organic ingredients. The result was the first Skout Organic bar. From there, Pastega took to his van, driving around town and trying to get his goods into every Portland-area food store. While Skout Organic has expanded far past its humble origins, its tireless drive and dedication to snacks made with all-natural ingredients remains unchanged.
Skout Organic Company Mission
Skout Organic uses wholesome, organically grown ingredients to make its plant-based protein bars and sunflower seed snacks. Each product uses seven or fewer ingredients, all of which are easily recognizable. The result is a snack that you can trust to deliver the energy you need without any unhealthy additives.
Skout Organic products are designed to power the most rigorous physical activity and promote a life lived outdoors. For that reason, the company has partnered with elite athletes in sports like mountain biking, skiing, climbing, and trail running.

Whatever your favorite Skout Organic snack is, you can be sure that it:
- Is made with plant-based, USDA Certified Organic seeds, nuts, and spices
- Uses seven or fewer simple ingredients
