About Us

Better World B2B is on a mission! That mission is to work with socially responsible companies who really “walk the talk”— the good guys who put quality and doing the right thing above profits — and help them find a wider audience.

We are driven by connecting quality, responsibly made and healthy living vendors to some of the world’s most high profile retailers and obtaining sales distribution into these powerful markets. Better World B2B provides unique insight based on years of experience into the mass merchandising market, grocery and wholesale club channels, giving our clients the opportunity to access these channels, generate profitable sales and simultaneously share their message. The Better World B2B Team shares in the same passion as the companies we serve—-to make quality, responsibly made product accessible to all at prices that are reasonable. We don’t work with all companies. We have a simple strategy:  we will attach our name to a company only if we would allow our families to consume or use their product. Period. We have passed on many products for this reason.  Better World B2B is proud to call on a team of colleagues from various retail fields to best create your strategy.
