Naledo is a proud B CorpTM
Naledo, the makers of Truly Turmer are using business as a force for good and proud to be a Certified B Corporation®!
June 1, 2020
Today, almost four years after we first launched Truly Turmeric, Umeeda and I are incredibly proud to announce that Naledo Foods and Beverages Inc has become a Certified B Corporation. B Corps are a new type of company that uses the power of business to solve social and environmental problems. B Corp certification is to business what Fair Trade certification is to coffee or USDA Organic certification is to produce.
Naledo was certified by the non-profit B Lab to meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency. We’ve evaluated how our practices impact our employees, our community, the environment, and our customers.
Today, there are over 3,300 Certified B Corps in over 70 countries! We are proud to join them in redefining success in business, so that one day everyone uses business as a force for good. To learn more about our certification, check out our B Corp profile.
Why did Naledo become a Certified B Corp™?
From day one Naledo has been a social enterprise, founded on the principle of being a better business for better lives. We wanted to be able to ensure we were being effective in our mission to not only produce amazing products, but the benefit the environment and communities we partner with. Becoming a BCorp allows us to prove this, not only to ourselves but to you! We want to thank Alison Chadwick, who's work on our monitoring and evaluation systems in Belize helped make this possible. Alison, we truly appreciate all your hard work, thank you!
