100km Foods Inc. Is Delivering More Than Local Food; Honored for Overall Positive Community Impact by Global B Corporations

Canada NewsWire

TORONTO, Sept. 13, 2016 /CNW/ - 100km Foods Inc., a local food distribution company in Ontario, has been recognized for creating the most positive overall community impact by B the Change Media based on an independent, comprehensive assessment administered by the independent nonprofit B Lab.  100km Foods Inc. is a Toronto based local food-distribution company founded in 2008 that sells, markets and distributes products from small and medium sized Ontario farms to Ontario restaurants, hotels, independent retailers and institutions.  Honorees are featured in the upcoming fall issue of B Magazine and on B the Change's digital platform, bthechange.com. They were also honored at the first-annual Best for the World Celebration & Awards Ceremony at the University of California, Berkeley's Haas Business School.

100km Foods Inc. is honored in the Best for Community list, which includes businesses that earned a Community score in the top 10 percent of more than 1,800 Certified B Corporations on the B Impact Assessment. The 141 winning companies in the Community category come from 18 industries and 24 countries.

The Community portion of the B Impact Assessment evaluates a company's supplier relations, diversity, and involvement in the local community. It also measures the company's practices and policies around community service and charitable giving, including whether a company's product or service is designed to solve a social issue, such as access to basic services, health, and economic opportunity. Honorees scoring in the top 10 percent set a gold standard for the high impact that business as a force for good can make on communities around the world.
