DORSET, Vt.–Woodenware company J.K. Adams has been awarded the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) Chain-of-Custody certification.
The FSC is the leading forestry stewardship system in the world with the mission to ensure forestry practices that are environmentally responsible, socially equitable and economically viable.
The company worked to obtain this certification for over a year, said John Rodrigues, vice president of J.K. Adams. The certification allows the company to put the FSC label on its products certifying that they meet rigorous environmental impact guidelines. J.K. Adams will debut new products in January—including cutting boards, servers and kitchen accessories—that will carry the FSC label.
“We have worked hard to raise the bar and set new standards in our industry—both in terms of design and in environmental practices—and are thrilled to be the first in the kitchen products category to receive the FSC Chain-of-Custody certification,” said Malcolm Cooper, president of J.K. Adams, in a statement.
