We're very proud to announce that last week innocent won the Footprint Sustainable Sourcing Award. The Footprint Awards are given to businesses who are making a difference to sustainability in the Foodservice industry, and to enter we had to demonstrate how the sourcing of our fruit and veg around the world makes a positive impact on the environment and communities we work with.
Our Philippa was all smiles on the night as she collected the award.
The Judges were really impressed with the innovation & impact shown in three of our major projects:
1. Spanish Strawberries Water Efficiency project
Taking a partnership approach to reducing water use in the region.
2. Climate adaptation project in India
Helping farmers to adapt to adverse conditions and increase the productivity of Alphonso mangoes.
3. Smallholder mango farming project in Rajapuri
Helping farmers to improve their agricultural practices and marketing approach in order to increase their income.
We're very lucky to have such dedicated fruit and sustainability teams who make projects like this possible. Thanks guys.
