Who made this product? Founded in 1989, Women’s Bean Project is an anomaly in the business world. It is a business, one that packages and sells bean soup mixes, baking mixes and other dry food products to stores across the U.S. and online. But tucked inside this business is a human services organization designed to provide a safe and accepting work environment where impoverished women can learn the skills required for gainful employment.
Why is it ethical? The mission of Women’s Bean Project is to change women’s lives by providing stepping stones to self-sufficiency through social enterprise. The women come to Women's Bean Project for a chance to create new lives out of the rubble theirs have become – and they do it in just six to nine months.
