Divine Chocolate Awarded B Corp Certification

A B Corporation certification means that companies meet a range of rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability and transparency.

There are currently 2,014 B Corp certified companies across 50 countries around the world. The ethical scheme was established in the USA in 2006 and has become a global business movement since.

Sophi Tranchell, CEO of Divine Chocolate said, “We remain 100 per cent committed to Fairtrade and the social enterprise movement. We see B Corp certification as a demonstration that these values run throughout our business, and we believe that it is part of our leadership role to embrace systems that drive businesses to behave better and empower consumers to make informed choices.

“B Corp certification gives us a useful tool for continuing to improve the way we do business, and our impact on the world as employers, as customers, and as suppliers.”
