Cabot Creamery Co-operative achieved B Corp certification in 2012 and became the world’s first dairy co-op to do so. We’re proud of this as it validates our attention to environmental and social impacts for our consumers, customers, employees and the farm families who own Cabot.
As a B Corp, Cabot strives to meet verified standards of social and environmental performance, transparency, and accountability. Our commitment to these rigorous standards returns meaningful benefits to employees and consumers alike, and measures not only sound viability, but impact on the communities we serve, and on the natural environment in which we live and work.
Over a century ago, 94 farmers formed Cabot Creamery Co–operative, based on the belief that together, they could do more. The Co-op is now made up of 800 farm families throughout New York and New England who are committed to making the highest quality dairy products while giving back to their communities and stewarding their land. Our Farmers’ attention to these three bottom lines; people, place, and profit are an essential part of Cabot’s legacy. For us, the B Corp certification is a public way of affirming what we’ve always believed, that together, we can do better. Here at Cabot, we’re excited about initiatives like the Department of Gratitude and the innovative practices at our creameries. All this comes together to make cheese and dairy products that are not only the World’s Best, but which really are best for the world.
The Best of the Best
We know that B Corps represent the best companies in the world as the best companies for the world. At Cabot, we’re proud to join over 3,000 B Corps, across 150 industries and 71 countries who together drive positive change through the power of what they do and how they do business.
