Peaceful Fruits wins B Corp certification
The highest accolade for companies that put social good ahead of profit is obtaining the B Corp certification. It’s the Good Housekeeping seal for businesses that have proven extraordinary dedication to their community, the environment, and their workers.
Peaceful Fruits proudly announces winning this honor and joining the elite roster of B Corporations, which include Patagonia, Ben & Jerry’s, and Seventh Generation.
To qualify as a B Corp, an organization must have an explicit social or environmental mission and a legally binding responsibility to take into account the interests of workers, the community, and the environment. Companies must adopt B Lab’s commitment to sustainability and treating workers well.
At the grocery store you’ll see chocolate bars with Fair Trade certification logos, telling you that the chocolate has been ethically sourced, purchased and processed in an ethical way. The B Corp certification is similar, except it tells you that the entire business and its leadership team have heightened their standards and take care of its stakeholders. It’s not just one product or a chocolate bar, it’s an entire way of business.
At Peaceful Fruits, we’re empowering rainforest communities to develop economically so they can protect their way of life and so that we all can protect the environment. We also employ adults who traditionally face barriers to employment with full wage jobs. We’ve shown our commitment to maintaining these standards now and into the future by updating our articles of incorporation to include the B Corp Standards.
