We have received The Queen’s Award for Enterprise in Sustainable Development.
The Queen’s Award is amongst the most prestigious for UK businesses, recognising and celebrating business excellence across the country in the categories of innovation, international trade, sustainable development and promoting opportunity through social mobility.
This award celebrates our environmental and social ethos which sits at the heart of the organisation. This includes our coffee buying program which is underpinned by direct trade, ethical supply chains, provenance and traceability. Alongside this in 2020 we certified as a B Corporation, demonstrating our deep-rooted commitment to building a sustainable business model and ‘doing business better’.
“It is with enormous pride that we have been recognised by Her Majesty the Queen for our commitment to sustainable development.
“When we talk about sustainability at Origin Coffee we talk about it in terms of each and every aspect of business operations – nothing escapes scrutiny. Asking how we can do things better, for people and the planet, is ingrained in our thinking and seeing the impact of our actions and inspiring other businesses to follow in our footsteps is a fantastic reward. It is a huge privilege to receive this award and is to the credit of the whole team."
Tom Sobey, founder of Origin Coffee.
