ReGrained is a Certified B Corporation®!

 

Since making our very first bar, ReGrained has held our company to the highest possible standards of environmental stewardship. We've spent the past five years pursuing our mission of forging a food system that can do more with less. While we’re proud to say we’ve already upcycled tens of thousands of pounds of nutritious supergrain, we are constantly looking for new ways to increase our impact.

 

Reducing waste is at the core of what we do. But, our mission doubles as one that is undeniably consumer-driven. We're committed to providing you with food that fulfills both your appetite and your conscience. This means we have a responsibility to give you confidence in our business practices as environmentally and socially beneficial.


While we can talk all we want about our passion for ReGrained’s mission, it’s more important that we walk the walk. That’s why we’re so excited to share a tangible result of our work: ReGrained is officially a Certified B Corporation®.

B CorpTM is a global nonprofit that is, above all, committed to the idea that businesses should compete not only to be the best in the world but to be the best for the world. They award their rigorous certification to companies that exemplify transparency, accountability, and social and environmental responsibility.


We underwent a series of assessments that measured ReGrained’s impact on all of our stakeholders – workers, suppliers, customers, our community, and the environment – and are excited to say that we surpassed the B CorpTM certification requirements. We’re humbled to be joining over 2,400 Certified B Corps across more than 130 different industries, all of which strive to use business as a force for good.

B CorpTM and ReGrained’s respective missions fundamentally support one another – pursuing this certification was a no-brainer for us.


“From the outset, we’ve done our best to consider all stakeholders in every decision,” Dan Kurzrock (CEO) reflects. “Becoming a B CorpTM enables us to formalize these commitments, and officially integrate them into our Corporate DNA.”


Going forward, the B CorpTM certification will hold us to the high standards of sustainability we already strive for, push us to the next level of corporate responsibility, and allow us to celebrate the positive impact our business has made so far. We can’t wait to continue incorporating these principles into our work as we help lead the revolution toward a more sustainable, less wasteful food system – all while producing delicious snacks that are good for you, and good for the planet.

Zero Waste Cooking: Egg Strata, Starring Your Leftovers

Made by soaking stale bread in eggs and milk, Egg Strata is like a casual quiche, with sourdough (or whatever you have lying around) replacing that finicky pie crust. Every bite delivers egg, cheese, veggies, and bread that’s squishy on the inside, crispy on the outside — in a way, it also evokes a deconstructed breakfast sandwich.

Have you ever wondered what to do with the leafy greens protruding from your root vegetables? I must admit, I used to throw them away; I wasn’t sure if they were edible, much less how to prepare them.
