We’re a Certified B Corp! Here’s What That Means
In 2022, MegaFood re-certified as a B Corporation. To do this, we again had to meet B Corp’s rigorous standards for social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency. We sit alongside 6,000 other companies that are dedicated to using business as a force for good and are proud to be part of the movement.
The assessment highlighted areas of opportunity, and we are committed to tackling all areas of impact from partnering with farmers who share our commitment to soil health through regenerative agriculture practices to reducing emissions and delivering a more sustainable packaging solution. We believe all businesses have a responsibility to make a positive impact in our world. To us, B Corp is another way to prove it.
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 three years we are required to reassess our business and are challenged to 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!
