Bench Brewing Receives B Corp Certification

BEAMSVILE, ON – Bench Brewing has announced that it has become the latest Canadian craft brewers to be officially certified as a Benefit Corporation or B Corp.

As noted on the B Corp website, this certification is given to “businesses that meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability to balance profit and purpose.”

“Our passion is making premium quality craft beer,” says Sarah Casorso, Head Brewer and Director Brewing Operations, in a statement. “Our priority is to do this sustainably and with as little environmental impact as possible in our local community. We strive to conserve water and recycle 100% of our brewery wastewater for irrigation of our hops and apples.”

“Our culture and employees are what make Bench a great company,” adds Naomi Guinyou, Advisor, People and Engagement. “We believe that compensating our employees fairly with full benefits while maintaining the highest standards of health and safety is critical to a great work environment.”

“Our employees come from our community – which is everything to us,” Guinyou continues. “We are lucky to be a part of this incredible community and are honoured to be able to give back through our partnerships with so many deserving organizations that make this area such a great place to call home.”

“We are extremely proud of this B Corp Certification,” says Matt Giffen, Founder. “It is a huge accomplishment by the entire Bench team and demonstrates our longstanding commitment to our employees, customers, community and the environment. We will continue to work to make Bench a force for good and will use the learnings and great tools from this process to make us a better place to work, better members of the community and even better environmental stewards.”
