But not anymore!

We are super stoked to announce that we have been working with Karim Sabet from Orbviz to create this world-first interactive B Corp impact interactive impact report which enables us to tell our impact story in a better way.

Oh no sorry, it’s a different kinda B!

Oh no sorry,
it’s a different kinda B!

Oh no sorry, it’s a different kinda B!

There appeared to be some confusion around B’s but nonetheless, it was a great night MCing the Apiculture New Zealand annual conference gala dinner recently.

Beekeeping is quite a big thing here (over 760,000 bee hives making over 20000 tonnes in 2021) and it was really interesting to learn more about the work ApiNZ does and also how it is quite a young organisation.

There’s a really clear link between the environment and what we make out of it like honey and it was inspiring to hear how many of the award winners were focused on positive environmental impact.

Currently, Manukora is the only Certified B Corp honey company in Aotearoa so perhaps there’s an opportunity for some more B bees in the future.

It was also my first time in Te Pae and it’s an absolutely amazing venue – I’m not sure my pictures really do it justice!

Thanks also to Matt Coppen for providing the tooons on the night.

The Benefit of B Corp in the Food and Beverage Sector

The Benefit of B Corp in the
Food and Beverage Sector

Looking forward to delivering my keynote “B Corp Is Better Business” to the attendees at the Natural Health Products NZ conference in Napier this month.

Hopefully, MC and adventurer Jamie Fitzgerald won’t make me walk for 1435kms and then row across a huge lake unsupported to get to the stage…

If you are in the natural health, food and beverage or health and beauty sectors then you really should be looking at B Corp as you can see how they make up a large percentage of the B Corp global community. It’s even more the case if you are exporting or planning on exporting into certain global markets.

For example, in the UK you’ll see that Waitrose even lets you search by B Corp brands on their online store.

And what’s more, recent stats from the pandemic period show once more how B Corp Certified brands proved to be more resilient.

At Grow Good, we have already recently helped twice, Heilala Vanilla and Jeuneora on their B Corp journey and currently have a few more awesome brands about to come through.

If you want to know more about the business case for B Corp in your business don’t forget to check out this free e-book on just that. And if you want some specific info on the ROI of B Corp for the consumer goods sector drop me a note to tim@growgood.co and I’ll hook you up!
