What is a B Corporation and Why is Homefree certified?

Homefree cookies are more than a delicious, allergy friendly snack. We are proud to share that
they are made as part of a mission of safe inclusiveness, and, related, that Homefree is a certified
B corporation. For those who are unfamiliar, you may be asking… what does it mean to be
certified B? Great question. B certification is granted to those who reach high performance
standards across a range of categories, take accountability, and publicly disclose important
information. In short, it means we are committed to being environmentally sustainable and
socially responsible. Homefree is eager to take initiatives to support safety, health, and happiness
for our customers, employees, and the wider community. As much as we hope you choose
Homefree, we are always choosing you.

Homefree has always had a strong sense of purpose and a commitment to making a positive
impact in the world. When we learned about B Corporations certification and the rigorous
standards it requires, we realized that we were already following the principles that B Corp
supported. We saw B Corp certification as a way to formalize and solidify our commitment to
using business as a force for good. By becoming a B Corporation, we aimed to demonstrate to
our customers, employees, and the community at large that we are dedicated to making a positive
impact in the world, and that we are committed to being a responsible and ethical company. We
are proud to be part of a community of companies that are all working towards a common goal of
using business as a tool for good. And we hope that as an increasing number of companies join
this movement, it will encourage a positive shift in corporate behavior more widely.

We also support this movement because the logo acts as an easy identifying feature that gives
transparency to the consumer. We believe that it’s important for customers to have the
information they need to be able to shop with their conscience. We know that so many of you
care about making a positive impact in the world and want it to be easy to know how to do that.
By watching for the B Corp logo on consumer products, as well as on websites of service
providers, you can be assured that those companies are held accountable to high standards of
social and environmental performance. That way, you can have peace of mind that your money
is going towards a company that is making a positive impact.

Homefree has always been committed to inclusiveness and to providing safe, wholesome
sustainable treats. We choose the best possible ingredients for allergen-related safety and for
health. This includes that our cookies are all certified a good source of whole grain. They are
also all non-GMO verified and some are additionally certified organic. We want to do our part to
ensure that our products are good for people and for the planet. Other examples of our efforts to
minimize our environmental impact is that our cookie boxes are printed with wind power, that
we recently refurbished our entire facility with sustainable lighting, and that we source our
electricity from green suppliers.

At Homefree, the care and well-being of our employees is also a priority. We strongly believe that work should revolve around life, not just the other way around. Our employees know that if they really need to be off to do something important with family, we’ll support that. We also provide access to health insurance, offer paid vacation, sick time, and holidays, and of course we let our team members take home seconds to enjoy with their families! And we are always looking for ways to improve. That includes seeking feedback from our team of employees, as we believe everyone’s voice matters. By prioritizing our employees’ needs, Homefree has succeeded in creating a supportive work environment that fosters growth and success. We are much more than a business; we are a community of people who care about each other and about the quality of the products that we offer.

We also share the B Corp belief that companies have a responsibility to the larger community of
which they are a part. Our efforts to be a good corporate citizen have ranged from allergen-
related teaching in allergy support groups to providing inclusive treats for non-profits’
fundraising events to frequently donating to food pantries, particularly to those that work to meet
the needs of people with dietary restrictions.

We hope that more companies will join this movement and contribute to creating a more
sustainable and resilient world that benefits all of us. Homefree is proud to be a part of this
movement and, together with you, we will continue to strive to make a difference.
