At the heart of the Foodles project is a burning desire to reinvent the office lunch break with a more innovative and flexible offering. But above all, it was the desire to create a business with strong environmental, social and societal values.
B Corp is an international movement that brings together more than 5,000 certified companies (UK B Corp community celebrated 1,500 UK businesses becoming B Corp certified in September 2023!). Of all sizes, in all sectors and in over 70 countries: they have decided to meet high standards of social and environmental performance, transparency and accountability.
To do this, B Corp carries out an extensive questionnaire and audit to assess the impact of the companies: we'll tell you more about it below!
B Corp is the most comprehensive certification on the market today. It analyses the activity and impact of a company in its entirety. And because we're aware of our impact and really want to defend an activity that makes sense, B Corp was an obvious choice for us.
Companies are assessed on 5 different criteria and answer a questionnaire containing over 200 questions! It's a long, meticulous study that looks at who we are and what we do. Here are the 5 scopes assessed:

We're staying the course, defending a tasty canteen that's ever more committed.
Aware of our impact, we will continue to maintain our efforts and B Corp will help us to refine our action plans and adjust our corrective measures.
The objective is clear: to continue to reduce our average impact per meal.
B Corp is not an end in itself, and above all it's not a given. In addition to regular exchanges, in 3 years' time we will have to repeat the audit to retain our certification.
In the meantime, we hope that our commitments will enable us to reduce our impact.
We are also aware that there are many areas to work on, so we will be continuing our efforts in our priority areas:
"B Corp certification is the result of more than 8 years' work. Foodles is breaking new ground, innovating and transforming its sector. But it is also, and above all, a strong DNA, guided by the desire to do things well, to do them better, to have a greater impact. A philosophy, a state of mind and a line of conduct now shared and lived by our 370-plus employees. It is therefore with immense pride that this vision is being confirmed today by a new step taken... Thanks to all our employees!"
