City Harvest helps businesses on their B Corp journey

Case Study: Collectiv Food

Collectiv Food has been a certified B-Corp since November 2023 after a year of applying. There is one main area where the partnership with City Harvest helped the next-generation wholesaler to gain points in the application process under the Community section:
“There are two questions that our efforts together have played into the application. The first is around the percentage of revenue that you’re donating, and that’s something that we were able to easily calculate with the kind of reports that we get from City Harvest.”

“The second is around the volunteering hours that we do and we love doing with the City Harvest.”

What is a B Corp?

Certified B Corporations, or B Corps, are companies verified by B Lab to meet high standards of social and environmental performance, transparency, and accountability. (Source:

Companies in the certification process are scored in 5 key impact areas, including governance, workers, customers, environment and community.

City Harvest helps businesses on their B-Corp journey by supporting with transparent ESG reporting through providing impact data related to food, money and time donated to City Harvest.
