What is B Corp and why did Hunter & Gather want it?Updated a month ago

Great Question! 👏

You might have heard about lots of discussions about B-Corp as well as brands you know and love announcing that they are officially a certified B-Corp - but what does it mean exactly?

B-Lab are a nonprofit network founded to transform the global economy to benefit all people, communities, and the environment.

They recognise that humanity is interdependent with one another and with the planet - and so the B-Corp movement was born to help businesses meet standards for better business.

B-Corp certification measures a company's entire social and environmental impact, with the ultimate aim of making business a force of good.

During the B-Corp assessment every aspect of the business is examined - taking a deep dive into every practice, process, and policy.

Individual scores are given to the categories of Governance, Workers, Community, Environment, and Customers - leaving no stone unturned! Businesses scoring 80 points or more will achieve certification - so we are over the moon to have received a whopping 93.4 points for our impact score 🎉

Here are some of the key areas which are looked at: 

  1. Ingredient Quality & Sourcing
  2. Packaging, Recycling & Sustainability
  3. A Happy, Healthy Team & Positive Work Culture
  4. Customers & Community

We hope that you will join us in celebrating this massive achievement of being awarded an amazing score of 93.4. This is just the start for Hunter & Gather and we look forward to continuing to excel in every aspect of our operations to ensure that Hunter & Gather is truly a force for good. 

Thank you so much for your ongoing support as this would not be possible without you one of our awesome customers. 🙌
