OLD - Social Mission
We craft mouth rockin’, world changing nut butters for one reason:
to improve people’s lives.
We’ve created a better way to do business. We call it Holistic Responsibility™. Using Holistic Responsibility as our foundation ensures we’re being the best we can be – from conception to consumption of our food – and beyond.
Holistic Responsibility is the result of asking ourselves the question: “How can a nut butter company improve people’s lives?” We aim to consider our impact on the health and happiness of Yumbutter fans, our supply chain partners, Mother Earth, our employees, the business ecosystem, and people born into unfortunate circumstances.
To us, running a food company is a deep responsibility. Since day one, we’ve infused our company with social and environmental impact and continue to improve everyday.
When you spread Yumbutter, you’re actually supporting a shift in the way businesses are run. Here are some of the ways we’re able to create social and environmental goodness:
- Leading socially-conscious nut butter company
- 14,000 feedings for children with malnutrition
- Over 4% of revenues contributed to social good in 2012
- B Corp score of 87 (other sustainable businesses score 80)
- Offset 36 tonnes of CO2 (~250% more than we create) through reforestation
Through our BuyOne:FeedOne model, we’ve been able to help feed over 14,000 children with malnutrition since mid-2012. As we grow, our impact grows.

We love food. We love healthy, sustainable food even more. So we do our best to bring you the best. Starting in 2010, Yumbutter churned organic peanuts. After a switch to non-organic due to supply issues, we’re now back on track to churn 100% organic peanuts. Our almonds come from small growers in California. Our cranberries come from a small organic cranberry farm near us in Wisconsin. Our Spicy Thai spices are organic and the superfoods like Chia, Hemp Seeds, Goji, and Lucuma in our Superfood potions are organic and super high quality. We work with many other partners in our supply chain, always starting local first and then working our way out. We do business with other B Corporations, making to sure to support other socially conscious businesses. Our packaging and paper use is continually analyzed. Glass jars with recycled labels and water-based inks and aqueous coatings.
We call this Holistic Responsibility™.
