|Down to Earth Markets is Now a Certified B Corp!|
We have an exciting announcement to share: Down to Earth Markets is now a certified B Corporation.
B Corporations – the B stands for Benefit – represent a new generation of companies that are in business to solve social and environmental problems. The certification is awarded by the B Lab organization.
He continued, “We’re proud to be a certified B Corporation because it unites us with the movement to realign business values to the values of community and environmental care.”
During the rigorous assessment process, our company was evaluated in four categories: Governance, Workers, Community, and Environment. At the core of our successful bid for certification was our primary purpose of “creating economic opportunity for local farmers, processors, and consumers to trade with one another for mutual benefit.”
“When we first started, the rally cry was to save the family farm. And that’s still the rally cry. But, we realized that if farmers could earn their livelihood through strong sales at the market, they would save the family farm. We had to become business-minded,” Zeltsman said.
He added, “Sustainable business is an enduring way to secure sustainable food for everyone. If local food is not economically viable, then we won’t have local food. Our business structure keeps us innovating to make it viable. We very happy to be in business as a certified B Corp.”
