by: PAMPLIN MEDIA GROUP PHOTO: JONATHAN HOUSE  - Hannah Kullberg runs Better Bean Co. with her father.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.
