Bee’s Wrap certified as B Corporation

MIDDLEBURY — Bee’s Wrap, the Middlebury-based maker of sustainable food storage wraps designed to replace plastic wrap, is now a Certified B Corporation. The prestigious and rigorous standard recognizes Bee’s Wrap’s mission to reduce plastic pollution and waste. 
“We’re honored to be joining so many fellow companies, big and small, that are demonstrating how business can be a force for good in the world,” said Sarah Kaeck, Bee’s Wrap founder and CEO. “I founded Bee’s Wrap to directly address the problem of plastic waste, and our B Corp Certification is the latest step in our mission-driven work.” 
B Corporations are certified by B Lab, and must meet the highest standards of overall social and environmental performance, transparency, and accountability. B Corps are committed to using business as a tool for solving social and environmental problems. Today, more than 2,700 companies globally have earned B Corp certification, and Bee’s Wrap joins 33 other B Corps in Vermont. 
Founded in 2012, Bee’s Wrap makes reusable food storage wraps designed to replace plastic wrap. The company touches every part of the process — sourcing ingredients, manufacturing in Vermont, and distributing nationally and internationally. After several years in Bristol, the company expanded to a larger facility in Middlebury in late 2018, and now employs more than 30 people. The company grew 87 percent last year, and Bee’s Wrap is available in more than 3,000 stores throughout the United States and sold in 41 countries. 
“Going through the B Corp assessment provided a valuable tool for us to see where, as a rapidly growing company, we’re doing well, where we can do better, and how we can protect the values that have been part of Bee’s Wrap since the beginning,” said Kaeck. 
“Since the beginning, we’ve believed that it’s both possible and morally imperative to value people and planet as much as profit,” Kaeck continued. “Our B Corp certification recognizes the hard work we’ve put in over the last six years to build that kind of company, and signifies our commitment to this work in the years to come.”
