Saffron Road Foods Becomes a Certified B Corp, Validating its Commitment to Ethical Consumerism and Sustainable Practices
The brand received the Certification from B Lab for its commitment to social and environmental performance, transparency and accountability
STAMFORD, Conn. (January 31, 2023) – Today, Saffron Road Foods announces it is now a Certified B Corporation™, further validating the brand’s dedication to ethical consumerism and sustainable agricultural practices. Founded by entrepreneur Adnan Durrani in 2010, Saffron Road celebrates the bold flavors of different cultures from around the world with high-quality, ethically-sourced ingredients. Each product, including its frozen entrées, ready to heat meals, simmer sauces, and crunchy chickpea snacks, is rooted in tradition — from its fresh, wholesome ingredients to its time-honored recipes – to deliver delicious dishes and snacks directly to Americans’ plates.
“Having devoted my career for 30 years to socially conscious, mission-based enterprises, Saffron Road being awarded this publicly recognized seal and certification was quite uplifting for me personally and our entire team professionally,” Durrani said. “It means so much to us at Saffron Road because it recognizes our long-time commitment as a Socially Responsible brand.”
The B Corp assessment process measures a company’s performance in five categories: governance, workers, customers, community, and the environment. The Certification process uses credible, comprehensive, transparent and independent standards of social and environmental performance.
“After more than a year of third-party audits around our company practices, a close look at our mission of ethical consumerism and sustainable agriculture, and an audit of our good works and community service. Our awesome team truly delivered on our promise of a Journey To Better,” said Durrani. “I couldn’t be more proud to be part of this community of mission-based B Corp brands I’m inspired by like Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams, Patagonia, EILEEN FISHER, INC., TOMS, Stonyfield, Danone North America, Ben & Jerry's, Once Upon a Farm, Seventh Generation, and Thrive Market.”
Certified B Corporations are for-profit companies that use the power of business to build a more inclusive and sustainable economy. The B Corp community works toward reduced inequality, lower levels of poverty, a healthier environment, lower environmental impact, sustainable agriculture, stronger communities, and the creation of more high-quality jobs with dignity and purpose.
Saffron Road joins a network of more than 4,000 B Corps across 77 countries and 153 industries, unified by one common goal: transforming the global economy to benefit all people, communities, and the planet.
