The global nonprofit B Lab grants its Certified B Corporation recognition to for-profit organizations that voluntarily meet certain standards of transparency, accountability, sustainability, and performance.
"At MegaFood, we envision a world without nutritional poverty—a planet where everyone is nourished," said Robert Craven, MegaFood CEO.
"Becoming certified as a B Corporation is an important step in ensuring that vision becomes a reality in our lifetime. B Corp certification gives us clear guidelines and targets to shoot for, allowing us to operationalize and express our passion to solve our nutritional crisis in a number of ways,” he added.
According to a company press release, MegaFood says it has always aligned with B Corp social impact standards, but began its formal certification efforts in late 2017.
“All of us at MegaFood are extremely excited about the road we are on towards formalizing our social impact," said Sara Newmark, MegaFood Vice President of Social Impact. "We're deeply committed to ensuring a more sustainable future through our work, and this certification better enables us to make progress in solving the needs of a world in nutritional crisis."
By baking social impact directly into our corporate strategies and holding ourselves to a higher standard, we're positioned to change this world for the good," CEO Craven added.
