Success for Easy Bean at Fairtrade Business Awards

We are delighted to share with you the news that Easy Bean, who were one of the first food producers we worked with – and still do  – has been named as the winner of the first ever regional Fairtrade Business Awards, sponsored by The Co-operative.

The judges said Easy Bean represents: “A focused company which clearly knows where it’s going and has worked with the Fairtrade Foundation to expand the range of Fairtrade products into a new area without becoming all ‘worthy’. It has a sense of informative fun around its ethos and packaging which is a brilliant way to engage customers with Fairtrade.”

The Awards were presented by entrepreneur and chef, Levi Roots, at a ceremony at Colston Hall, Bristol, onMarch 8, attended by 160 business leaders in the region. Levi has recently visited Fairtrade cocoa farmers in Ghana and told the audience how inspired he was by the difference Fairtrade makes to communities.
