Supporting sustainability is not just our goal, but our responsibility which we take very seriously. To us sustainability encompasses environmental, social and economic issues.
Manitoba Harvest Supports Renewable Energy!
We have partnered with Renewable Choice to support the development of wind power projects and to take responsibility for our environmental impact. Manitoba Harvest Hemp Foods & OIls has offset the conventional electricity use of our 20,000 sq foot state-of-the art kosher and organic ceritfied facility, by purchasing renewable energy credits (RECs).
RECs are produced by wind farms, biomass facilities and other renewable energy projects. They provide companies and consumers a way to invest in renewable energy development and offset their electricity use with wind-powered and other renewable energy projects without having an on-site installation.
By purchasing RECs, we are guaranteed that the electricity we use is replaced on the national power grid with electricity generated from renewable energy sources.
Our Commitment to Reduce Our Environmental Impact
By taking steps to conserve the electricity we use and reduce our environmental impact by purchasing RECS, our commitment has an impact similar to:
- Planting 1,009 mature trees
- Not driving 272,449 miles in an average car

Other Environmentally Conscious Actions in the Office
Manitoba Harvest’s packaging is made from recyclable and/or reusable materials. Marketing materials and business correspondence is printed on recycled paper.
In our office, we recycle, reuse, and reduce as a daily practice. Office paper, cardboard, cans, bottles, plastics and other materials are salvaged or recycled. We use real dishes and wash them instead of using paper or plastic. Cleaning products are natural, bio-degradable and are approved for use within certified organic facilities.
We support sustainable agriculture by endorsing environmentally-friendly, non-intrusive farming practices. Manitoba Harvest partners directly with farmers, fostering education on organic hemp production and encouraging more hemp to be grown. These farmers are savvy business people and “guardians” of some of the best hemp farming land around. Many of them are also company shareholders so they have a say in our operations and ultimately we are accountable to them.
Educating the public on hemp and healthy lifestyle choices is part of our mission. Our staff donates their personal time to share their knowledge with the community and participates in numerous local charities. Our President and Co-Founder is also President of the Canadian Hemp Trade Alliance, sharing his experiences and helping to advance the hemp industry as a whole.
At Manitoba Harvest fiscal responsibility is a part of our definition of sustainability. Financial statements are presented to Shareholders Annually, and finances are routinely audited by third-party firms. Being economically viable is crucial for helping to build the industry and to continue providing the highest quality hemp foods to our customers.
