We’re incredibly proud to announce we have been shortlisted as a finalist at the World Procurement Awards 2020 in the category of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).
It’s all thanks to our work as the first company in foodservice to join the Buy Social Corporate Challenge, a ground-breaking initiative that sees corporate partners come together to do more with social enterprises.
