We’re a Certified B Corp! Here’s What That Means
Abigail McShinsky | May 2018
We’ve been sharing a few exciting announcements and updates recently when it comes to our purity seals and certifications. New additions, such as Certified Glyphosate Residue Free, are important to help you identify healthy products that align with your needs and values (along with the classics such as gluten, dairy, and soy free). MegaFood has never been one to rest on our laurels, though, so in our ongoing effort to nourish a world in nutritional crisis, and make it easier for you to find products that share your values, we’ve added one more...
MegaFood is now a Certified B Corporation®!! This is an important certification because unlike the others, it speaks to the company, not just the products!
So, What’s a B Corp™?
The quality of the final product that ends up in your hands is of incredible importance, which is why we spend so much time making sure it’s just right. But what about those folks that are actually making the product? Are they treated well? What about the manufacturing process itself? What has been done to ensure it isn’t detrimental to the environment? How about the local community?
As shoppers, we’ve become more and more aware of what goes into our products, both tangibly and intangibly, and the greater impact that has. When we purchase a product, we are voting with our dollars. Now, more and more of us are choosing to vote for good, honest companies, and are asking some of the questions posed above. Fortunately, MegaFood has been asking these questions, too... for as long as we’ve been around! It’s one thing to talk the talk, though, and another to walk the walk…
A Force for Good
Certified B Corps are for-profit companies certified by the nonprofit, B Lab®, to meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency. What makes B Corp certification so special is that it’s not a one-and-done thing, either. Every two years we are required to reassess our business, and are challenged to increase our score and be a better business. B Corp’s philosophy is to inspire all businesses to compete not only to be the best in the world, but to be the Best for the World® - not a hard mission to get behind!
Soon you’ll see the Certified B Corp logo on our labels right at the top of our purity seals, because we know it’s THAT important. Until then, however, you can learn all about our B Corp story, and rest assured knowing that your favorite multi (we hope!!) was made by a company using business as a force for good.
