Greyston Bakery, Inc. – A Certified B Corporation…

Greetings from Yonkers! Hope everyone is enjoying this beautiful day. I wanted to take a moment to tell you about something that we are very proud of here at Greyston Bakery. As you may already be aware, we are a certified B Corporation. I know what you’re thinking: just what is a B Corporation? Well, a B Corp is a type of corporation that uses the power of business to address social and environmental problems. Our method for addressing social issues is to offer and provide a supportive workplace with opportunity for advancement to all. Our profits contribute to the community development work of the Greyston Foundation (

It’s a great feeling to know that we aren’t the only ones using business to drive positive social or environmental change- and even better to know that we are a part of a community with them. Our friends at B Lab- the organization that created the “B Corp”- are always willing to help out and we encourage you to support them.

It has been said that you are the company you keep. We here at Greyston Bakery love being a part of an outstanding community of extraordinary businesses that do good and do well, and whose inspiring missions distinguish their operation from others.
