13 B-Corp businesses we’re proud to work alongside
We’re so very proud to be a B-Corporation. B-Corporation, or B-Corp for short, is a certification for businesses who have a bigger mission than simply making money. B-Corp is for ethical businesses who want to make a positive impact for the benefit of people and planet. While we’re on a mission to reduce unnecessary food waste from farm to fork, here are 13 other B-Corp businesses making brilliant, positive change in the world.
