How long have you been a B Corp™?Certified in April 2019
What attracted you to B Corp™?
At Torani, we believe in doing the right thing simply because it’s the right thing to do. This goes hand in hand with the B Corp™ mentality of balancing purpose and profit and is the way we’ve always done business. It was a natural fit to become B Corp™ certified.
Why does B Corp™ matter to you?
Torani chose to apply for B Corp™ certification with the belief that businesses have a greater responsibility beyond profit, and that all businesses should – and can – consider the impact of their decisions on their team members, customers, operators, partners, community, and the environment. It means the world to work for a company that puts people first.
