THE Pro­duce World Group, a lead­ing grower and sup­plier of high qual­ity fresh veg­eta­bles, with head­quar­ters in Peter­bor­ough, has been highly com­mended in all three cat­e­gories it en­tered in the in­au­gu­ral Waitrose Way Awards.

Waitrose

Way

is

the su­per­mar­ket’s Cor­po­rate So­cial Re­spon­si­bil­ity strat­egy made up of four pil­lars, in­clud­ing cham­pi­oning Bri­tish, tread­ing lightly, treat­ing peo­ple fairly and liv­ing well. The awards were de­signed to recog­nise Waitrose sup­pli­ers’ sus­tain­abil­ity ini­tia­tives which ul­ti­mately en­hance the food on the con­sumers’ plates.

Pro­duce World en­tered three cat­e­gories, Tread­ing Lightly - Waste Re­duc­tion, Tread­ing Lightly - Water Re­duc­tion, and Treat­ing Peo­ple Fairly.

Wil­liam Burgess, Pro­duce World Group CEO, said: “Sus­tain­abil­ity mat­ters to our busi­ness and to Waitrose. We truly be­lieve that by work­ing col­lab­o­ra­tively we can drive real busi­ness ben­e­fits for our sup­ply chain and have last­ing pos­i­tive im­pacts on the en­vi­ron­ment. To be highly com­mended for all three awards we en­tered is a great hon­our and a trib­ute to the work of ev­ery­one at Pro­duce World.”
