We are so thrilled to announce that we are now a certified B Corporation and are joining like minded businesses committed to "using business as a force of good".
What is a B Corporation?
The B Corp verification process measures a company’s social and environmental performance, accountability and transparency. To become a Certified B Corporation, companies undergo a rigorous and holistic review of the impact of their operations and business model on their workers, customers, communities and environment. B Corp certification is based on a vision of creating a community of companies dedicated to redefining what it means to be successful.
Beyond this new honor, Beehive Cheese was founded as a business with a goal of positively impacting both society and the environment; they are a Benefit LLC (BLLC). Supporting employees with full health care, paid parental leave and a work-life balance, Beehive Cheese is a business who believes in boosting the wellbeing of their team and the economic vitality of their community.
More than 80% of raw goods come from local producers and farms, with 60% of expenses spent with local, independent suppliers. The brand encourages community service of all employees and offers paid time off for community service within our industry. Beehive Cheese also contributes 5% of profits or more to local charities through cash and in-kind donations.
