Honestly Delicious! Greenspoon exists to provide a new kind of grocery shopping experience in Kenya, one that's transparent, safe, delicious, and built on sustainability. Food can change the world when people and planet come first. When Juliet was weaning her first child, she realized there was no easy way to shop safely and sustainably, so she set out on a mission to find Kenya's best producers and bring them to the Greenspoon platform. Every product on Greenspoon is vetted for quality, social impact, and environmental impact, and considered within the prism of what makes the world a better place. Greenspoon's commitment to being a business for good shows in everything they do: circular economy with packaging returns, Kenya's only electric delivery vehicles and bikes, working with suppliers to reduce packaging, donating food waste to black soldier fly projects to turn into animal feed, recycling cardboard and paper waste into toilet paper and serviettes and much more. Becoming a B Corp is a milestone for Greenspoon, and a commitment they are excited to honour and grow over the coming years.
