Southwest Environmental Sustainability Award 2019 Finalist

Taste of the West Finalists 2019

We are delighted to be named as a finalist for the inaugural South West Environmental Sustainability Award. This new award for Taste of the West 2019 reviews our business activities over the last three years and our approach to protecting the environment and using resources ethically. The award is assessed across five marks of environmental sustainability – packaging, raw materials, waste and recycling, energy use, and water use

It’s a fantastic accolade to be named finalist for the new South West Sustainability award and reflects our ongoing work to put the UN Sustainable Development goals at the heart of our business – explained Lick the Spoon’s Director Matthew Short

Taste of the West – Patron HRH Prince Charles, is the largest independent regional food group in the UK promoting and supporting local food and drink from Cornwall, Devon, Dorset, Gloucestershire, Somerset and Wiltshire. The unique organisation is owned by over 1,000 members including food and drink producers, restaurants, cafes, pubs, hotels, farm shops and specialist retailers in the South West – all passionate about the provenance and quality of the products they make, serve or sell.

The next stage of judging occurs next week with a visit to our Corsham Chocolate factory to learn more about our approach to sustainability.
