World Centric, a leading supplier of foodservice and retail compostable products, has been named among the top social entrepreneurs of 2011 by Bloomberg Businessweek. Since its inception in 2004 as a non-profit and now as a for-profit since 2009, World Centric remains committed to reducing environmental impact to the planet and offers consumers a more responsible choice in place of traditional plastics and Styrofoam™. World Centric, which will celebrate its most successful year to date, is happy to be recognized nationally as a social enterprise that is more concerned with doing good rather than just profits.

World Centric, uses agricultural waste byproducts to make products, donates 25% of its profits to nonprofit grassroots organizations focused on social or environmental change, offsets all carbon emissions from raw materials to delivery and offers discounts to schools and nonprofits. They also provide compostable school trays at cost to any school or organization wishing to reduce their consumption of traditional plastics and Styrofoam™.

“We believe businesses can play an integral and critical role in providing solutions to today's critical issues, and are proud to be acknowledged as one of the top social enterprises in 2011” said Aseem Das, CEO and Founder of World Centric.

World Centric is also a certified B Corporation. To earn certification, B Corporations meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, transparency, and accountability. B Corporations are companies which use the power of business to solve social and environmental problems. A total of nine Certified B Corporations have been named by Bloomberg’s Businessweek as ‘America’s Most Promising Social Entrepreneurs’ of 2011.

Aseem Das, CEO and Founder of World Centric noted,“We became a B Corp to be part of the collective voice of companies that are about integrity, responsibility, sustainability and doing good in the world instead of being just about profits. We are happy to be recognized by Bloomberg Businessweek and are honored to join many of our fellow B Corporations on the list.”
