Skout Backcountry

Skout Backcountry LogoFeeling inspired by a connection to the land and his own passion for adventure, Jason Pastega put his favorite organic ingredients into a kitchen mixer and spread his first bars with a rolling pin in 2008. Six months later, Skout Backcountry was born.

“In 2008, while on Mt. Hood, I stopped to refuel and pulled out a so called ‘healthy’ snack. While reading the ingredient list, I quickly realized I needed a chemistry degree to understand what it was made of. Returning to Portland, I began my quest to come up with a solution.”

SkoutJason's yellow Labrador and fellow adventure-seeker, Skout, was part of the inspiration behind the name. To “scout” - to explore, to search, to observe - ties directly into the company’s adventure mentality.

Today, Skout retains an unrelenting commitment to sourcing the best ingredients from the best places on earth. This starts in Skout's own backyard - Portland, Oregon. The incredibly simple amount of ingredients that go into each bar is a source of pride for Skout Backcountry, Jason Pastega and the individuals that make it all work behind the scenes.

Organic. Non GMO. Vegan. Plant-Based. Kosher. Gluten Free. Dairy Free. Grain Free. Soy Free.

Whether it’s an energy bar, protein bar, or pumpkin seeds, Skout Backcountry’s plant-based expedition food provides powerful, organic nutrition. Organic dates and organic pumpkin seeds are the superfoods that deliver antioxidant power and sustained low glycemic fuel.
