We did it1 As proud as punch to become a certified B-Corporation

2023 ended with some very exciting news for the team at Annabel’s Deliciously British. After 14 months of interrogation, monitoring and hard work, we gained our B-Corp accreditation!

WHAT IS B-CORP? 

B-Corp certification is the only certification that measures a companies social and environmental performance. It proves that a company is excelling in these areas in the present and also commits them to continuing to work on, and improve in these areas in the long-term. 

B-Corp Certification is the most rigorous audit social scheme out there, and we are so proud to have achieved this, as it means that we’ve achieved those industry leading standards that we feel are so important.

At Annabel’s Deliciously British we’ve always committed to producing the highest quality products with honesty and integrity, in the most ethical and sustainable way possible, to ensure this considers how future generations may be impacted. 

“SUSTAINABILITY & QUALITY WITHOUT COMPROMISE. PRESERVING THE COUNTRYSIDE FOR THE FUTURE OF BRITISH FARMING & FOOD.” – ANNABEL

This is all about a better future for British farmers, producers and consumers. But to achieve this, growers need the space to be more dynamic, follow trends and to be creative to fill the gaps in the market that consumers don’t even know exist yet. 

What we leave behind matters as much as what we produce so we’re constantly working to produce the highest quality produce, sustainably, without compromising on both taste and the needs of future generations.

Year on year we continuously improve our processes to ensure we have as little impact on the world around us as possible. From using our lake for irrigation to using the most environmentally friendly packaging, to using “wonky” fruit within our own conserves and chutneys, and utilising renewable energies. 

Not only do we have B-Corp Certification, we also have One Carbon World Carbon Neutral International Standard. We won’t stop there, we will continue to strive for more and to be the best we can be, without compromising the quality of our products!

We are dedicated to driving investment back into the future of the British farming industry, as well as the British people. We’re equally big advocates for giving back to our society. It’s for this reason that we support The Prince’s Trust with every punnet of strawberries sold, and Marie Curie with every bunch of daffodils sold. 

“I AM PASSIONATE ABOUT ENSURING THE FUTURE OF THE PLANET FOR EVERYONE, AFTER ALL IT’S FUTURE IS IN OUR HANDS AND IT DESERVES TO BE RESPECTED.” – ANNABEL

Sustainability

At Annabel’s Deliciously British, we care as much about what we produce as that we leave behind, which is why we are so committed to achieving top-notch quality with a sustainable, local supply. We believe in a better future for British farmers, producers, and consumers alike.

Strawberry Power

Making every effort to be carbon neutral, we send any waster berries to our packaging supplier’s anaerobic digester – so our biodegradable strawberry punnets (500g) and cardboard trays (1kg) are produced using strawberry power. We source inputs wherever possible from Great Britain, and are LEAF, BRC and Red Tractor accredited.

Doing our bit for local wildlife

Creating an environment around the farm that champions the biodiversity of the wildlife living here is as important as creating sustainable farming practices and having zero waste. A few years ago we installed our beehives and also worked on creating bug hotels throughout the farm.

This year, we have installed Owl Boxes, to provide safe homes for owls and encourage more of them to come to and nest around the farm. We’re keeping a close eye on these to see which visitors make their home there.

Carbon Neutral

We are proud to have achieved Carbon Neutral status in August 2023
