Wow! Last night we attended the Footprint Awards and did not come home empty handed. We beat some very impressive competition to win their Sustainable Supplier Award. We also won the Innovations in Packaging Award for our rather exciting (and innovative) gourmet hot box. Both of these are very exciting indeed, for different reasons.
Our gourmet hot box is a genuine breakthrough. It’s the first of its kind – the first completely compostable, sealable hot food box with a window. So we are delighted that the prestigious judges agreed!
As for being named the industry’s most Sustainable Supplier, well…that is amazing. The judges looked for evidence how the product has benefitted the customers, economic benefits, and consistency of supply, environmental impact, social impact, and innovation. Essentially, they scrutinised all the elements of what we do, and decided that we deserved the award.
It’s not even half way through 2013 and we’ve won 9 awards. And it’s great fun to be making all these new friends throughout the sector.
