 Paintbox is a FeastOn certified catering company located in Regent Park offering premium catering and event planning across the GTA. Founded in 2011, it operates from an 8,000 square foot space that includes two state of the art kitchens, an event space and a storefront café and bistro. In 2013, Paintbox became the first caterer in Canada to attain B Corporation status, companies that are verified by the non-profit B Lab  for their positive impact on people and planet; businesses that can do good and still turn a profit.

“B Corporations are for-profit companies certified by the non-profit B lab to meet the rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability and transparency. B Corp is to business what Fair Trade certification is to coffee or USDA Organic certification is to milk. Today, there is a growing community of more than 2,100 Certified B Corps from 50 countries and over 130 industries working together toward 1 unifying goal: to redefine success in business”- from bcorporation.net 

 Not only has Paintbox attained such lofty and commendable status, but in 2016 they were named “Best For The World” by B Corp, acknowledging their strong community mandate, a designation that puts Paintbox in the top 10% of all B Corporations.
