This article was originally published in December 2014

On October 22, PCC was honored by Seattle Business magazine as part of the publication’s first annual Community Impact Awards Program. One of 23 local businesses recognized for contributions and achievements in 11 categories, PCC was one of three finalists in the category of “Business of the Year: Midsize Companies.” We were selected for a Silver Award. The category winner was Sellen Construction Company.

PCC has relationships with several other companies that were honored, including the Seattle Aquarium, Theo Chocolate and Cedar Grove Composting. Seattle Business magazine has acknowledged PCC in the past; in 2009 PCC won the Green Washington Award and in 2011 PCC was the only grocery store among the publication’s list of Washington state’s 50 most sustainably operated organizations.
