Our biggest success story: “We enjoyed a successful promotion of the coffee industry in the Democratic Republic of Congo.”
How we are able to “B The Change” with the help of coffee and tea: “We create opportunities for people to affect positive change by offering choice of coffees, tea, and sustainable products that support the people and local economies from where they came and also protect the environment.”
If you want to become a B Corp… “Adopt it early, it’s a gift. Study it and incorporate it in your business’s way of thinking.”
