Oishi-m is proud to be a certified B Corporation (B Corp) Business. B Corp's are leaders of the global movement of people using business as a force for good™. We meet certified standards of verified overall social and environmental performance, transparency, and accountability, and aspire to use the power of business to solve social and environmental problems.
As part of the certification process, we were assessed in regards to our environmental choices, feedback loops with customers, staff engagement, our giving, involvement in our industry and community, decision-making processes as well as a plethora of other initiatives we take part in. This process and certification took months of work, feedback, assessment and certifying. Have a look here to check out our impact assessment.
We would love the world to be a better place because of businesses like ours. We believe that businesses can serve more than just it's shareholders and be a force for good. Becoming a certified B Corp business is an exciting milestone for Oishi-m to be part of the movement of shared and durable prosperity for the world around us. We are very excited to be joining a community of other remarkable Australian businesses such as; Bellroy, Who Gives a Crap, Stone & Wood, Tom Organics and Five:am Organic Yoghurts.
The process of becoming a B Corp challenged us and encouraged us as a business to think beyond the normal filter of running businesses in 'making a buck' and to think about and act on the bigger picture of the world we live in and the impacts that we can make as individuals and business.
In line with our charter to constantly become a more responsible business, Oishi-m is also proud to now be shipping all Australian orders using environmentally friendly Compost Packs, using the Australia Post Express Post Network. After you receive your Oishi-m order in one of these bags, pop it into your home compost bin with your food waste for the worms to eat. As an independent Australian children's brand who ships parcels all over, we are so happy to now be using satchels that are made from sustainably-sourced plants that are a naturally renewable resource.
