Central Point OR – Since its founding in 1933, Rogue Creamery’s handmade cheeses have won widespread acclaim and dozens of awards, including “World’s Best Blue Cheese” in 2003 – a distinction that put this small business on the international stage. But being a leader in the specialty cheese industry is only a part of Rogue Creamery’s vision for the future.
As Oregon’s first public benefit corporation (B Corporation), Rogue Creamery has built a reputation of being a force for good. They strive to do more than be best in the world: they want to be best forthe world.
And now Rogue Creamery has been honored for doing just that.
Out of more than 2,400 Certified B Corporations around the world, Rogue Creamery has been singled out for creating extraordinary positive impact in the community and environment by winning a place on the 2018 “Best For the World” lists. This is the second year in a row that Rogue Creamery has been honored with this distinction.
“As a mission-driven public benefit corporation, we want to do so much more than make better cheese,” commented David Gremmels, President of Rogue Creamery. “We want to make a better future, too.
“Being named ‘Best For the World’ shows that we’re doing it right. From making the commitment to be organic, to using solar panels to power our facilities, to volunteering in our community – our actions make a real difference. And our hope is that they inspire others to do the same.”
The Best For the World Lists are based on an independent audit administered by the nonprofit B Lab, which measures a company's influence on its workers, community, customers, and the environment. Businesses that earn scores in the top ten percent of all B Corporations win a spot on the Best for the World lists. Rogue Creamery placed on the 2018 Overall Best for the World list, as well as B Lab’s Best for the World – Environment list.
