The fine foods supplier and retailer was one of the first UK companies to become a B Corporation in 2015. Founder and chief empowerment officer at Cotswold Fayre Paul Hargreaves said:  “While we were delighted to be short listed for three awards, this is the one that we all really wanted to win. It was truly a company-wide achievement and couldn’t have been accomplished without the team’s constant drive and commitment to create a positive difference in every aspect of what they do.”

Cotswold Fayre and its sister company Flourish Foodhall and Kitchen produce an annual Impact Report, an insightful extension of a traditional annual report that looks at the company’s effect on the world as well as its financial performance.
