Woo-hoo! MegaFood is now a Certified B Corporation.
Don’t mind us, we’re just a little bit (okay, a lot) excited about recently becoming a Certified B Corporation!
B Corps are for-profit companies certified by the nonprofit, B Lab to meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency. (Stuff we’ve always been passionate about.)
See, it all started with this:
At MegaFood, our higher purpose is to nourish a world in nutritional crisis.
We envision a world without nutritional poverty—a planet where everyone is truly nourished.
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®.
It just felt like a natural fit for us, and something we really wanted to be part of. So, we did what we had to do to get involved.
We had to meet the performance requirements:
B Lab assesses applicants in the following categories:
Important legal stuff. We put legal requirements and provisions in place to ensure that sustainability will always be part of the company DNA, no matter how much we grow.
We made the grade: We had to complete the B Impact Assessment with a minimum score of 80 out of 200 points. We scored 91 in 2018, and we're committed to increasing our score every year.
We made it official: We signed the B Lab Term sheet and Declaration of Interdependence.
For you, this means we’re a brand you can believe in—now more than ever!
As a certified B Corp, MegaFood can guarantee our employees, retailers, vendors and consumers that they can be proud of doing business with us, that we will stay real and socially conscious, and that we’re in this for the long haul.
Today, there is a growing community of more than 2,100 Certified B Corps from 50 countries and over 130 industries with 1 unifying goal—to redefine success in business.
And we’re part of this world-changing movement!
That’s why we’re so excited. We hope you are, too.
