Once Again Nut Butter gets sustainability honor

Once Again Nut Butter has been named the 2017 HowGood Certified Sustainability Leader, officials said.

The Nunda, Livingston County, firm is among the top 15 percent of HowGood’s sustainable food and beverage products. HowGood owns the largest database of sustainable food and beverages in the world, officials said.

“The HowGood rating system has the most stringent benchmarks for sustainability among food and beverage products in the country,” said Alexander Gillet, CEO at HowGood. “It’s a huge accomplishment that Once Again Nut Butter has been awarded the HowGood Certified Sustainability Leader two years in a row. We’re proud to support Once Again Nut Butter and recognize them for meeting and exceeding our comprehensive standards for environmental and social impacts.”

Once Again Nut Butter was recognized by HowGood last year, receiving its “Best in the World” award. It is an employee-owned company.

“Since day one, the prosperity of our people, the quality of our products and the health of the planet have been our top priorities,” said Bob Gelser, general manager and president of Once Again Nut Butter. “It’s inspiring that the majority of global consumers now prefer brands that are socially responsible, but with so many options on store shelves, it can be overwhelming to select the best product. This is why we’re proud to be distinguished by HowGood and hope more retailers will provide its ratings as a guide for shoppers.”
