Terra Nostra Organic, a Vancouver, British Columbia-headquartered chocolate producer, has become Green-e certified for its U.S.-manufactured chocolate bars through the purchase of renewable energy credits from community-based wind farms. These credits offset all 248,000 kWh of Terra Nostra's annual usage.

In addition, the chocolate plant that is used to process its Ricemilk Choco bars is designed for sustainable chocolate production and is based on an energy system that is both cost-effective and environmentally friendly, according to the company. A heat-exchange process results in energy efficiency of up to 82%.
