LOS ANGELES, Jul. 24 /CSRwire/ - Beanfields Snacks, makers of award-winning Bean and Rice tortilla chips, is proud to announce its certification as a B Corporation™. Beanfields Snacks joins Ben and Jerry’s, Patagonia and 740 others companies worldwide using the power of business to solve social and environmental problems.
"The 'B' stands for benefit," said Reed Glidden, Beanfields’ Founder and CEO. "B Corps inspire businesses to compete, not only to be the best in the world, but to be the best for the world." B Corporation performance standards are comprehensive, measuring a company’s impact on its employees, suppliers, community and the environment.
Beanfields is on a mission to combine social responsibility, good nutrition and award-winning taste. “All our Bean and Rice Chips are Non-GMO project verified, gluten-free, vegan and food allergy friendly,” said Reed’s brother, Roy Glidden, Co-Founder and Vice President. Chips come in five vegan flavors: Nacho, Pico de Gallo, Sea Salt, Salt N’ Pepper and Unsalted. Our Pico de Gallo flavor was voted a hit by Supermarket Guru, Phil Lempert.
“This year, fun new packaging and a major presence in New York metro stores, are introducing scores of new fans to our fast-growing brand,” Roy Glidden added. “Beanfields Bean and Rice chips are already a favorite in premium grocery stores in 22 Western states, from Texas to Hawaii to Colorado to Alaska.” Chip lovers all over the Northeast, Midwest and Southeast are now seeing Beanfields beginning to appear in their local premium stores.
