Hunt’s Food Group, of Sherborne, is now a certified B Corporation.
“This certification is an important milestone for the company,” said a spokesperson for the wholesaler. “It demonstrates our ongoing commitment to using our business to positively impact our colleagues, customers, communities and the planet.
“Our journey to achieving a B Corp certification started around a year ago when we noticed a lot of the internal changes we were implementing ran parallel to those of the B Corp movement, such as becoming carbon neutral by 2025, using trusted quality suppliers, pledging £150,000 per year to charitable giving, implementing a company advisory group to ensure we have the best possible workspaces and a social workplace plus much more!”
In order to become a certified B Corporation, every part of the wholesaler’s operation was analysed to ensure it meets high social and environmental performance standards.
“At Hunt’s Food Group, we are passionate about using our business as a force for good,” the spokesperson added. “That’s why we have always been committed to distributing high-quality products for trusted supply chains and making changes to our operation where possible to ensure we do what’s best for our customers, colleagues, and communities while reducing waste and cutting carbon. Becoming a B Corp is a natural extension of our values. We are proud to join a growing community of companies committed to creating a better world.”Published Date: May 11, 2023
