Natures Crops International (Winston-Salem, NC), a vertically integrated producer of specialty plant oils for nutraceuticals, food, personal care and animal nutrition products, has announced that it, along with its U.K. and Canadian subsidiaries, has been certified as a B Corporation (B Corp). Natures Crops has met the high standards and rigorous requirements of becoming a B Corp in the areas of social and environmental performance, accountability and transparency and across five key categories—governance, workers, community, environment and customers.
“What started as an ambitious goal in 2021 has now been realized through dedicated team effort and our unified vision of being a force for good and using regenerative strategies to improve personal and planetary wellness,” said Andrew Hebard, founder and CEO of Natures Crops. “Our flagship product Ahiflower, a regeneratively produced, plant derived alternative to fish oil really highlights and emphasizes the positive global impacts that can be made through our authentic mission to provide regeneratively grown, sustainable, plant-based ingredients that support the optimal health and well-being of people, communities and the planet.”
Natures Crops is now one of the select 2,200 B Corp businesses in the U.S. and Canada, and over 5,700 globally, collectively working to transform the global economy to be more inclusive, equitable and regenerative, according to the company. To achieve B Corp certification, the company was required to pass a rigorous risk review and achieve high scores on the B Lab Impact Assessment demonstrating its commitment to being responsible, accountable and transparent in its social and environmental performance.
All of the pure and fully traceable oil from Natures Crops is cultivated regeneratively by qualified, independent farmers following protocols to optimize water management, enhance biodiversity, capture carbon, increase pollinators, prevent soil erosion and minimize chemicals. Its proprietary Crop Assured 365 process ensures full traceability and quality control throughout its secure supply chain.
