Why We’re Proud to Be B Corp Certified

Since 2019, Ocean’s has been proud to be B Corp Certified. Joining this growing community has been a source of pride for us because it recognizes our commitment to balancing profit with purpose. It also solidifies this commitment, inspiring us to be leaders in an emerging economy that strives to create a more inclusive and sustainable world.  

 

What It Means to be B Corp Certified 

Certified B Corps are companies that have been verified as achieving a high standard of environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability. These companies work every day to reduce inequality, promote a healthier environment, build stronger communities, lower levels of poverty and create quality jobs. With a focus on making a positive impact on their employees, communities, and the environment, B Corps use their businesses as a force for good.  

To join this community of brands, we underwent a rigorous certification process that went beyond assessing our products. Rather, to become B Corp certified, we were measured on our social and environmental performance. Called the B Impact Assessment, this certification process evaluated every aspect of our business from our operations to our impact on employees, the community, the environment, and customers. To continue to meet these standards, we committed to continued transparency and accountability. More than that, we’ve made a legal commitment to considering all our stakeholders – not just those who stand to gain from our profits – in every decision we make.  

 

The B Corp Community is Strong 

When we became B Corp certified in 2019, we joined the ranks of 2,700 companies across 60 countries that believe in using their business to create a positive impact. Just three years later, that community has grown to 4,000 corporations! The fact that this community continues to grow shows that companies like ours are increasingly concerned with creating a more inclusive and sustainable economy. As this movement grows, we’ll continue to take pride in our commitment to the B Corp community. This is especially true following the events of the COVID-19 pandemic, which shone the light on many of the inequities in our society.

    How controlled are these farms as far as health /cleanliness and safety for human consumption?
    It’s great that it employs people and decreases poverty but I’m very concerned about considering people’s health when consuming these oysters from a farm as supposed to from the ocean.

    1. Hi Ankie,

      Thank you for taking the time to enquire about our products. We appreciate hearing feedback from our consumers.
      All products carrying our label must pass through a rigorous Quality Control program before the product is released for sale in the marketplace. Our inspectors monitor the processing plants on a regular basis from raw materials to finished product. During this inspection, they ensure the product is produced in a safe and contaminant free environment. For instance, hairnets, moustache covers, handwashing, both glove and boot dips are all part of a very strict policy that all our canneries relay to their employees. In addition, processing plants install metal detectors to ensure metal contaminants will not get into the products. Furthermore, our Quality Control Technicians sample all production codes to ensure quality standards are maintained.
      Health and safety are a top priority for Ocean Brands. All of our oysters and mussels are sustainably sourced from farms that are located directly in the ocean. Starting this year, all of our retail Smoked Oysters in Oil and Smoked Mussels in Oil products are Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC) certified. In addition, we are currently working to get our Smoked Oysters in Chili Oil ASC certified next year as well. In order for a farm to attain ASC certification, the farm must pass through rigorous assessment and uphold the strictest standards set by the council to ensure environmental and social responsibility are maintained.

      For more information on Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC) certification, please visit https://www.asc-aqua.org/.
