Green BEAN Delivery launches corporate health and wellness program, lands Macy’s and Total Quality Logistics as first Cincinnati clients

Green BEAN Delivery, an online home delivery service that provides organic produce and natural groceries to Midwest members, announces today the launch of its new corporate health and wellness service in Cincinnati. Fashion retailer Macy’s and freight brokerage firm Total Quality Logistics (TQL) are the program’s first Cincinnati clients. On a weekly basis, Green BEAN Delivery is now dropping off employee produce and grocery orders at their partners’ corporate offices.

Encouraging a community-based approach to corporate wellness, Green BEAN Delivery will also have tents, tables and food samples set up on delivery day as well as staff available to answer employee questions about the produce and groceries on a weekly basis. A portion of sales will be returned to the business on a monthly basis to use toward healthy snacks for the break room, a discount on future employees orders or a donation to the businesses’ favorite charity.

In addition, Green BEAN Delivery will provide the following free tools to make the employees’ healthy eating initiatives a success:
· Hosted Q&A sessions to introduce staff to the service
· Recipes, tips and resources that enable lasting diet changes
· Access to a nutritionist for advice and programming
· Reporting to track participation in the program

“We have had extremely positive feedback to the program from our employees thus far,” said Tami Helling, human resources manager for Total Quality Logistics. “They are extremely pleased with the quantity of food that comes in an order and how fresh it tastes versus what they purchase in stores.”

Businesses of all sizes can partner with Green BEAN Delivery to provide employees at-work delivery of organic produce and natural groceries, and the service is provided without start-up costs, additional management fees or contracts.

“Many business owners are willing to take an extra step to help their employees live happier, healthier lives, and our new platform provides that opportunity,” said Matt Ewer, president and co-founder of Green BEAN Delivery. “Improving your wellness program helps employers encourage a culture of healthy eating, recruit top talent, boost morale, energy and productivity, and develop camaraderie based around wellness.”

Green BEAN Delivery will work with each company to develop incentives that encourage participation and provide benefits back to the employees and business. Each company can have a customized delivery plan to meet its employees’ needs.

Additionally, for companies that want to ensure employees have access to healthy snacks while at work, Green BEAN Delivery’s Break Room Bins program is now available to businesses throughout greater Cincinnati. Through this service, Green BEAN Delivery provides fresh fruits, coffee and other healthy snacks to office break rooms via weekly deliveries.

Since inception, Green BEAN Delivery has invested more than $5 million into local food economies throughout the Midwest. The company is now serving more than 12,000 customers in Indianapolis and Fort Wayne, Ind., Cincinnati, Columbus and Dayton, Ohio, Louisville and Lexington, Ky., and St. Louis. To date, Green BEAN Delivery has donated more than 240,000 pounds, or 120 tons, of fresh produce to hunger relief agencies in these states.
