We are excited to announce that Prime Roots is now the first mycelium-based food company to receive B-Corp certification! What does B-Corp certification mean? Certified B-Corps are businesses leading the future of a sustainable and equitable economy. B-Corps equitably benefit consumers, employees, communities, and the environment—not just shareholders.
Our goal at Prime Roots is to create a sustainable and equitable food web on a global scale, and change the way we think about meat through accessible and climate-friendly food for everyone to enjoy. Our meats made from koji mycelium result in 92% less water use, 91% less land impact, and nearly zero byproducts, while replicating the delicious umami-rich flavor and meaty texture you know and love from animal meat.
We deeply understand the need to make positive changes in the plant-based meat industry. Unlike other plant-based options, we're proud to have a clean, simple label - and we offer more affordable, tastier, and healthier options to reduce your meat consumption than our competitors. This year, we will continue to expand access to our plant-based meat options that are actually better for you and better for the planet. We are thrilled to receive the B-Corp designation and be in the company of similar businesses that are working towards creating a healthier future.
