Portland-based Better Bean Co. has earned certification as a Certified Benefit Corp. or B Corp.
B Corp status, bestowed by the nonprofit B Lab, is a business sustainability label akin to LEED for green buildings or fair trade for coffee producers. B Corps consider the impact of their decisions on all their stakeholders, including consumers, employees, shareholders, suppliers, the community and the environment.
There are currently 894 certified B Corporations in 29 countries.
Better Bean Co. co-owners Keith and Hannah Kullberg offer all-natural, vegan, gluten-free, and non-GMO beans grown organically and Food Alliance-certified.
We create positive relationships with our employees, vendors and customers and offer them a level of transparency that speaks to our common goal of creating social change and producing a tasty and healthy product, said Keith Kullberg.
