The Better Bean Company has become a certified Benefit Corporation (B Corp). The designation is awarded to companies that use the power of business to solve social and environmental problems, meeting standards of performance, transparency, and accountability. Unlike traditional corporations, B Corporations are legally required to consider the impact of their decisions not only on their shareholders but also on their stakeholders (e.g., the community, environment, workers, suppliers, and consumers). Better Beans are vegan, gluten-free, and Non-GMO Project verified and feature regionally grown organic and Food Alliance certified beans. The Better Bean Company’s unique packaging uses “one-seal” technology for its resource conservation. This system integrates the typical extra layer of plastic into the lid and represents a 30 percent reduction in carbon footprint. The lid is firmly sealed into place with heat and pressure, creating a food-safety barrier that peels off easily. The container is also BPA-free and fully recyclable.
