Located in Portland, Oregon, Better Bean Co produces fresh, never canned, hand sautéed and prepared beans from fresh ingredients. They can currently be found in PNW, NorCal, SoPac, RM, SW and MA regions.

Founded in 2010 by Keith and Hannah Kullberg, Better Bean pioneered refrigerated, ready-to-eat gourmet beans. Their line of premium, refrigerated beans features sustainable minimum till beans from Pacific Northwest farms that are slow cooked by hand and packaged in BPA-free tubs to seal in the fresh flavors. The beans are vegan, gluten-free and Non-GMO Project Verified. The company is also a Certified B Corporation. Better Bean’s products not only provide the convenience of ready-to-eat food, but also provide a gourmet product that intends to raise industry health standards through their nutritious beans.

This loan is instrumental in helping Better Bean complete the build-out of its own production kitchen at their Wilsonville, Oregon facility. Ultimately, this dedicated kitchen facility allows Better Bean to increase production levels and have greater control over quality standards and food safety precautions.
