It’s summed up in our internal initiative ‘being the bees’ knees’, that incorporates everything from our investment in our people and professional development, through to giving back to the environment and the industry we are rooted in. Caring for our people and the planet is, and always has been, a key facet of what we do.
We have set-up 10 commercial bee hives and planted a wildflower mix over seven acres that’s within a 37 acre commercial apple orchard as part of our environmental endeavours.
It’s also pertinent to mention that we have committed to the Better Business Act alongside 1,000 other business leaders. I was joined by my husband and fellow company director Robin Linch on ‘Better Business Day’ in London on Wednesday 20th of April, to lobby Parliament, in support of changing business law to mean all businesses should to be run in the interests of its stakeholders, not just shareholders. We also met with and have written to Herefordshire MP Bill Wiggins to make the case.
