SEATTLE — Coffee Flour – a sustainable global impact food – today announces that it has earned its B Corp Certification.
Certified B Corporations are leaders of a global movement of people using business as a force for good. They meet the highest standards of overall social and environmental performance, transparency and accountability and aspire to use the power of business to solve social and environmental problems. There are more than 2,000 Certified B Corporations in over 130 industries and 50 countries with 1 unifying goal – to redefine success in business.
Coffee Flour transforms coffee cherry pulp, a former waste product, into a nutrient-rich ingredient. Since its inception in 2014, the organization has provided a unique combination of nutrition and impact that empowers customers to change the future of food. Poised to reinvent not only the coffee industry, but also inspire like-minded organizations to rethink their existing food production systems, Coffee Flour is a powerful addition to the global menu.
The brand’s new status as a Certified B Corp will allow Coffee Flour to forge more fruitful and impactful partnerships with like minded organizations – specifically those that are similarly committed to corporate responsibility. Coffee Flour has a fruitful relationship with fellow B Corp, ReGrained, for example, functioning as a superfood ingredient in the brand’s Chocolate Coffee Stout Bar. Other B Corps, like African Bronze Honey, are also in the research and development process with Coffee Flour.
“At Coffee Flour, we’re dedicated to leading by example and operating as a socially responsible and upstanding member of our community. Our new B Corp Certification will allow us to support and be supported by others that share our mission,” said CEO Tom Clemente. “Each year, 46 billion pounds of coffee cherry fruit are dumped into rivers, streams, fields and landfills as a byproduct of green coffee production –– our sustainable product has the power to offset this waste by transforming the fruit into a nutrient-dense ingredient that can be enjoyed by everyone.”
Coffee Flour is available for online purchase at Nuts.com and Marx Pantry.com as well as in retail grocery stores under the Nature’s Earthly Choice brand – it is also utilized as a superfood ingredient in many popular consumer goods, including ReGrained, Alvarado Street Bakery Sprouted Wheat & Coffee Flour Breads, Earnest Eats Energized Cereal, Seattle Chocolates and more. The product is also served on the Google Foods menu globally.About Coffee Flour
