Many of our social enterprises made a name for themselves before we even began to partner with them. Greyston Bakery is a prime example of this, quoted in a Business Week story as being “one of the prime examples of social entrepreneurship.” The bakery is most well-known for making fudge brownies that go into Ben and Jerry’s ice creams.
The story focuses on the social mission of the bakery while the CEO enforces the fact that it is still a business and needs to make profits. Greyston Bakery is one example of a social enterprise that helps better lives of those less fortunate but still make money at the same time. They pride themselves as being a model for other businesses on how they could use business to make a difference.
