About Nada

Nada is a package-free grocer on a mission to cultivate a better world by inspiring people to change the way they shop for groceries. They tackle plastic pollution & food waste while supporting a just food system through our innovative sourcing criteria.

Founded by a marine biologist who had experienced first-hand the plastic pollution crisis in our oceans, Nada was created to address this problem at its root: our current food system. Nada works to change this food system, addressing packaging waste and food waste while supporting local actors committed to better agricultural practices.

However, much of what needs to be done to reduce waste and support a healthier, more vibrant planet relies on collaboration between business, community partners, and NGOs. We became a Certified B Corp to join a network of companies who believe in using business as a force for good. It adds a layer of transparency and authenticity to our efforts to support a just food system, and represents a commitment to continual improvement.

In the past year, we have taken a deep dive into our supply chain, prioritizing organic farming practices, small local businesses, waste reduction, and innovative business models. The B Corp assessment process was helpful in guiding this process; with rigorous and data-backed criteria the B Corp assessment helped us understand not only how to improve our own operations, but to support our suppliers to improve theirs too.

What makes us a better company?
