Latest news from Big Barn and our producers.
On Thursday night, amongst some the great and the good, BigBarn won the CIC category of the People and Environment Achievement Award (PEA).
The PEA Business Awards recognise the exceptional leadership and vision that make a lasting impression and whose best practice and key strategies might inspire others in the future. They highlight the people who are creating Britain’s greenest businesses, who understand and respect the planet’s precious resources and are prepared to make changes today to improve future well-being.
The glamorous awards ceremony was help at the Orangery at Kensington Palace and sponsored by Green Magazine.
We were nominated by the Green Directory and one of two organisations shortlisted to attend the ceremony. It was a fantastic shock to first be even nominated, and then to actually win. A big pat on the back for the BigBarn team and much needed awareness raising to all our hard work over the last 10 years.
If this momentum can continue we will help divert more of the £100 billion spent with supermarkets to local shops and communities with massive social benefits for all. You can help by shopping locally by using our local food map and telling your friends. You should save money by cutting out the middlemen and retailers and avoiding special offers you don’t need!
