Union Coffee win prestigious award
We are delighted that Union have won the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in Sustainable Development, the UK’s highest accolade for business success in sustainability. As one of the UK's most established craft coffee roasters, Union won the award for its pioneering business model Union Direct Trade which has improved the lives of over 11,000 people in developing countries.
Commenting on the award, co-founder Steven Macatonia said "We are thrilled to have won this prestigious award, recognising that a sustainable approach to business can actually facilitate growth, rather than be a hindrance to it".
The following article published in the Financial Times is a great reminder of the substance that sits behind the Union Direct Trade commitments.
Congratulations to everyone at Union!
