April 22nd is Earth Day - a 24-hour period dedicated to celebrating all that Mother Earth does for us 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. And being as food-focused as we are here at Culinary Collective (the parent company for Zócalo), we know that Mother Earth is truly the hand that feeds us. We choose to show our thanks by rooting out and supporting the farmers and producers who respect the Earth and the diversity she provides.
Our sourcing criteria is at the heart of who we are and what we do, but it is also just a portion of what it means to be a responsible business. Fortunately, doing business responsibly - maximizing beneficial impact on people and the planet - has become an important criteria used by consumers when making their purchasing decisions. Today, there is a growing community of more than 1,000 Certified B Corps from 33 countries and over 60 industries working together toward 1 unifying goal: to redefine success in business. Culinary Collective helped lead the charge by becoming a founding B Corporation in 2007.
