June 11, 2024 - Alameda, CA & Swakopmund, Namibia - Got Produce Global Brands, a dominant food security company ispleased to announce its certification as a B Corporation with an impressive score of 114 points. This prestigious recognition by B Lab confirms their commitment to high standards of social and environmental performance, transparency, and accountability.

Certified B Corporations, or B Corps, are at the forefront of a global movement harnessing the power of business to drive positive change. As part of this esteemed community, we join over 2,000 companies across 50 countries in redefining success in business.

"Our journey to becoming a B Corp has been a significant milestone for us," said Ms. Walliser, the visionary founder behind Got Produce Global Brands. "We firmly believe that business can be a force for good, and this certification represents our dedication to creating a sustainable future for all."

The B Corp certification is for the whole of the business and covers five key impact areas of Governance, Workers, Community, Environment and Customers. The certification process is rigorous, requiring companies to reach a benchmark of over 80 and provide evidence of socially and environmentally responsible practices - including energy supplies, waste and water use, worker compensation, diversity and corporate transparency. To complete the certification, the company has legally embedded their commitment to purpose beyond profit in their company articles.

"The specific public benefit purpose of the Corporation is to produce a positive effect (or a reduction of negative effects) by engaging in scientific, technological and educational activities that facilitate the development of sustainable food production and distribution solutions embracing the Corporation's three pillars of sustainability: (i) stewarding and care of natural and finite resources; (ii) well-being of employees, consumers and plant health; and (iii) community involvement to promote and ensure local educational, environmental and economic benefits. Furthermore, in order to advance the best interests of those materially affected by the Corporation's conduct, it is intended that the business and operations of the Corporation create a material positive impact on society and the environment, taken as a whole."

Lucy Muigai, B Lab Africa Executive Director, expressed her delight in welcoming Got Produce Global Brands to the B Corp community. "We are confident that Got Produce will be a valuable addition to our network of companies driving positive change through business. Being able to welcome this innovative company to the B Corp community is hugely exciting. Their commitment to doing business differently will be an inspiration to others and really help spread the idea in Africa that we can redefine success in business to be as much about people and planet as it is about profit."

Deborah Walliser, Founder and CEO of Got produce emphasizes sustainability is not just a buzzword, it's a fundamental part of our purpose. Our sustainability framework underscores our impact on people, the planet, and the bottom line. We understand the importance of quantifying the value of our sustainability measures, whether it be through water savings, biodiversity conservation, or other initiatives for complete food sovereignty solutions.

By embarking on this journey as a B Corporation, we invite our customers, investors, and stakeholders to join us in our commitment to using innovation and best practices for strong and transparent growth.
