On the evening of 22nd March 2023, Simply Doughnuts was named the winner of the Diversity & Inclusion Award category in the annual Business Champion Awards.
The event took place at East Wintergarden at Canary Wharf in London.
To reach the finals, every business had submitted a detailed entry and then made a formal presentation to a panel of judges, followed by a question and answer session. The standard of entries was reportedly extremely high, so we were delighted to be acknowledged in this way.
The award recognised our efforts to create employment, training and work experience opportunities for people from all sections of the community, including individuals who might be considered to be disadvantaged or under-represented in the world of work. In this, we work with publicly funded employability programmes, local training bodies and organisations working in the voluntary and charitable sectors.
We were also a finalist in the Innovation Award category and impressed judges with details of our recent work to improve product shelf lives from 30 to 42 days.
