by JulieCraves on February 15, 2007

The CRO (Corporate Responsibility Officer, formerly Business Ethics magazine) has just published its eighth annual 100 Best Corporate Citizens, considered the third most influential corporate ranking.  Companies are rated on their performance in eight categories:  shareholders, community, governance, diversity, employees, environment, human rights, and product.

Coming in at #1, for the second year in a row, is Green Mountain Coffee RoastersThe Mermaid also made the top 10, placing ninth; Starbucks has made this list all eight years. Whole Foods Market (owner of Allegro Coffee) was at #54. Missing from the list were any of the big four corporate coffee pushers.

I saw a rumor that Green Mountian Coffee may buy Allegro from Whole Food, is there any truth to this?

Hmm, no, I haven't heard that one, and haven't seen anything about it. Whole Foods did recently buy Wild Oats Markets, which had a deal with Green Mountain to exclusively sell their coffee. Perhaps this was part of the purchase agreement.
