About Us

CarbonOne is a purpose-driven organization focused on fighting climate change in collaboration with Canadian Food and Beverage companies.

Together we are building a more resilient and sustainable food system to feed Canadians and the world for generations to come.

Our Story

We are a founder-run organization with 6 decades of experience in Sustainability and the agri-food industry.

Our journey started in late 2021 as a response to mounting pressure on Canadian Food and Beverage companies to communicate the climate performance of their products. A lack of palatable options available in the market presents a real problem for companies already overburdened with a myriad of challenges and operating on thin margins.

With deep knowledge of both the agri-food industry and sustainability, we set out to develop a real solution for this very real problem – A simple and affordable solution for Canadian Food and Beverage companies to measure, improve and communicate the climate performance of products.

In summer 2023, we will be launching our proprietary and innovative first of its kind in Canada solution. This innovative clean-tech solution is a game changer that will enable Canadian Food and Beverage companies to effectively manage product climate expectations at a fraction of the cost and time with no prior knowledge required. We believe this will accelerate the growth and profitability of food and beverage companies, and foster a more resilient food system in Canada while driving climate action.

This is our Blueprint - it guides us along our journey.
