In 2019 we were named finalists for the inaugural Taste of the West South-West Environmental Sustainability awards – patron HRH Prince Charles.
We were also named Impact founders by UCL College London.
In 2020 we joined the Doughnut Economics Action Network launched by Oxford Economist Kate Raworth to try and shape businesses for the future economy.
