We made the list!
We’re thrilled to share that Merryfield has been honored by Fast Company, which named us a finalist in the Corporate Social Responsibility category as part of its 2022 World Changing Ideas Awards.
“It’s an honor for the Merryfield team and our growing collective of better-for-you member brands to have been named a finalist in the corporate responsibility category of Fast Company’s 2022 World Changing Ideas Awards,” says David Mayer, Founder and CEO of Merryfield.
We couldn’t be more grateful to our loyal and incredible app fans, for helping us get here. When launching Merryfield, we set out to build a disruptive new rewards platform for better-for-you brands. We wanted to create a way for brands to reward people like you for supporting their products, enabling them to give more money directly back to their consumers. This makes better-for-you products more affordable and more accessible for more people.
Merryfield is the only rewards app with rigorous quality standards that all brands and products must meet to be on the platform. Created by the company’s Clean Council, Merryfield’s Standards filter out unwanted ingredients such as artificial color, high fructose corn syrup and hydrogenated oils.
“People want products made from ingredients that don’t harm people or the planet,” says Joe Dickson, Co-Founder and Head of Standards and Policy of Merryfield. “Many people worry about potentially harmful ingredients or unnecessary chemicals, and often they don’t trust companies to be transparent or put consumer health and safety ahead of company needs. We truly appreciate Fast Company's recognition of Merryfield’s ability to help give consumers this much needed peace of mind.”
Adds Zooey Deschanel, Co-Founder and Chief Creative Officer of Merryfield, “We’re on a mission to help erase access disparities to better-for-you products and healthier living for everyone. Our team could not be more excited to be a finalist in the corporate responsibility category of this year's World Changing Ideas Awards. It acknowledges and recognizes Merryfield’s potential to help democratize access to better-for-you options and improve information availability for people looking to make healthier choices all around.”
Merryfield is about saving but also rewarding choices that promote wellness. Merryfield’s vision is to help make wellness less “aspirational” and more approachable and affordable. Watch soon for Merryfield rewards across many other dimensions of wellness including healthier eating out, home and club fitness, wellness-related apparel, mindfulness and more.
