It all goes to show that the Footprint Awards is so much more that just another awards scheme.
The EBAE can only be entered by those who are put forward by an Accredited Feeder Scheme - winners and runners-up of the Footprint Awards. We are very pleased that Greenvale, winner of the Sustainable Use of Natural Resources award at the Footprint Awards 2011, are one of only 12 UK entries to have been selected to compete on the European stage alongside big brand names like M&S, Levi Strauss and Hanson. This really goes to show that the Footprint Awards offers a valuable platform and pan European exposure for those who triumph. For us it is so tremendously exciting because part of our objective is to display what amazing work in the realms of sustainability and responsible business is being accomplished by the foodservice industry. As my colleagues have said, winning a Footprint really is the start of international recognition for your achievements! said Charles Miers, Managing Director of Footprint Awards.
