Industry News: Blissfully Better Certified By the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council
Better-for-You Confections Brand Supports Diversity and Women-Owned Businesses Through Certification
CHESTER, N.J. (May 10, 2018) – Blissfully Better, an innovative company founded on making products that are delicious and healthier for you, is proud to announce it received national certification as a Women’s Business Enterprise by a regional certifying partner of the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC) this spring. Through strict guidelines and parameters, Blissfully Better’s new certification now proves the organization is 51 percent operated and controlled by women.
WBENC’s national standard of certification is a meticulous process including an in-depth review of the business and site inspection. The certification process is designed to confirm the business is at least 51 percent owned, operated and controlled by a woman or women. By including women-owned businesses among their suppliers, corporations and government agencies demonstrate their commitment to fostering diversity and the continued development of their supplier diversity programs.
“I am so excited and so proud that Blissfully Better received this certification,” says Bonnie Wintz Boroian, Founder and CEO of Blissfully Better. “Diversity in the workplace is an important topic, and that includes more than just the faces of the organization; it includes everyone who deals, supplies or works with Blissfully Better. We are proud to join this community of women-owned and operated businesses through the WBENC certification and help advocate for better opportunities.”
Blissfully Better is a sweet confection that relies on nutritionally-sound and
organic ingredients to make up a uniquely better-for-you treat. Made with 72 percent cacao and sweetened only with organic coconut nectar, Blissfully Better is a delicious sweet that
provides a slow release of energy, paired with high nutrients and 16 amino acids. Most recently, Blissfully Better announced a new Non-GMO certified and vegan flavor to its line of Certified Organic confections, Certified Organic Toasted Coconut Thins. It joins three other well-received flavors, including Almond Toffee Thins, Crunchy Quinoa Toffee Thins and Sea Salt Caramel Thins. Now, the brand proudly carries the WBENC certification.
