Fine food wholesaler Cotswold Fayre has launched a B Corp Accelerator Programme to help its suppliers through the B Corp accreditation process.
Cotswold Fayre, which itself received B Corp accreditation in 2015, is now actively extolling the principles of the global organisation, which helps companies improve their social and environmental impact for all people, communities and the planet.
Clementine De Zotti, impact manager at Cotswold Fayre, said: “Many of our suppliers are eager to understand more about B Corp and how they can start to work towards accreditation themselves.
“From the outside, the process can look a little daunting. Many are already doing the right things but need some assistance on how to connect this with the certification process, and this is where we can really help.”
There are more than 600 B Corps in the UK, of which 103 are in the food and drink sector. Cotswold Fayre has 35 B Corp suppliers and hopes that with the help of the new programme it will add a further 20 to its portfolio this year. To this end, Cotswold Fayre is currently running a three-month course for suppliers.Published Date: March 7, 2022
