Congratulatory Message: Picaroons Traditional Ales

Mr. Coon: I wish to congratulate Picaroons Traditional Ales of Fredericton on achieving Certified B Corporation status, meaning the company has voluntarily met high standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency. This makes it the second B Corporation in New Brunswick. B Corps differentiate themselves by offering a positive vision of a better way to do business. They contribute to our local economies by creating higher-quality jobs and improving the quality of life in their communities. You can think of Ben & Jerry’s, which is based out of Vermont, as the original B Corporation.

I join all members of the House today to applaud Picaroons, a home-grown Fredericton business, for its growth within our province and for adhering to these rigorous standards while continuing to benefit our region as a successful, socially responsible craft beer producer. Thank you.
