Through an investment in The Conservation Fund’s sustainable working redwood forests in northern California, American Licorice Co., which produces Red Vines, plans to purchase 20,000 tons of verified carbon offsets to counteract carbon dioxide emissions from electricity and fuel used at its headquarters in La Porte, Ind., and offices in Union City, Calif.
"On the back of every Lovely Candy Co. Package, you’ll find the company’s story.
“The journey started when Jackie asked her husband Mike to go on a quest for her favorite candy... licorice,” it reads. “Hers was a special request, it needed to be consciously crafted with select gluten-free ingredients.”"
American Licorice Co. has announced plans to invest $10 million in the expansion of its La Porte, Ind. manufacturing facility.
The Bend, Ore.-based candy maker plans to equip and renovate its 285,000 square-foot facility. The expansion, which will include the installation of a licorice production line and the addition of a rail spur so the company can receive ingredients by rail, is expected to be completed by 2015.
