SOCIAL ENTERPRISE

“We don’t hire people to bake brownies, we bake brownies to hire people.”

Greystone Bakery business model is really inspirational. They open hire which means anyone who applys, gets hired. Check out this video. It would be nice if companies in East Oakland and other inner cities had businesses like this. #socialenterprise

Heather Van Dusen, who is the director of  “B-Corps Fellows Program” and the “B-Corps on Campus initiative,” spoke about B-Corps certification and one example she showed was Greyston Bakery, Inc., which interested me and made me want to learn more about the company. Greyston in Yonkers, New York is a for-profit social enterprise that bakes brownies and cookies with a good will. They are famously known as Ben & Jerry’s brownie supplier, which we can say are tasty. Greyston Bakery is a company that has become B-Corp certified and scored a 147/200 on their impact assessment based on their contribution towards social, environmental, and economic sustainability.
