2:00 p.m. ET - 3:00 p.m. ET
Consumers are increasingly demanding healthier, more natural, and more ethical products in the kitchen and around the home.

For Canadian brands focused on health and the planet, B Corp certification sends a powerful message that consumers are making not only a healthy choice, but also a conscious and ethical one.
