De Krat was founded in 2010 by Eefje Brugman. The company delivers food boxes with high quality, sustainable and locally produced food in a wooden crate (krat). Directly from the farm to your kitchen table. All ingredients are Dutch seasonal products, from fair producers and farmers. About 60% of the products are biological, the rest meets Dutch quality label and ourt own standards.
De Krat, the first Dutch food box is a proud B Corp. Since december 2015 we have become a part of this international movement of sustainable and transparent companies that use their business as a force for the good.
B Corp certification (also known as B Lab certification or B Corporation certification) is a private certification issued to for-profit companies by B Lab, a global non-profit organisation with offices in the United States, Europe, South America, Canada, Australia & New Zealand. To be granted and to preserve certification, companies must fulfill an assessment for social and environmental performance. As of April 2016, there are 1,704 "certified B Corporations" across 130 industries in 50 countries.
Eefje Brugman, founder of De Krat: “We're thrilled to have this certificate because it shows that we truly are a sustainable and caring company. The B Corp assessment is pretty tough, so to accomplish it you know you are doing a good job. Unfortunately there's a lot of companies out there that misuse the word sustainable: with this certificate we can distinguish ourselves from these competitors."
