I recently met coffee roaster Saxon Wright, to hear about Pablo & Rusty’s recent certification as a B Corp. Specialty coffee seems to lead the way in the beverage industry with its focus on sustainability from grower through to consumer. B Corps ‘aspire to use the power of markets to solve social and environmental problems’, and the Silver Chef group is a proud member of the worldwide B Corp community.
We discussed the growth of the business, their commitment to sustainably sourced produce, and the additional B Corp priorities of environmental action, improved employee conditions, customer and community support, accountability and transparency. Even coffee waste is being imaginatively re-used with their Huskee Cup project. The company is growing fast, and Saxon sees the focus provided by B Corp standards as an important part of their success.
