On the evening of Thursday 5 May, members of the Simply Doughnuts team attended the ‘Made in the North West Awards’ at the Lowry Hotel in Manchester.
We were finalists in the Sustainable / Ethical Manufacturer award category so we were naturally delighted when the judges announced Simply Doughnuts as the winner.
Our operations manager Evita Dambrauska took to the stage to accept the award trophy, together with PA / administration manager Fatima Raja.
Fatima thanked the judges and explained that we have always made waste minimisation a cornerstone of our operations. She explained how our products’ long shelf-lives help to minimise waste, and some of the many ways in which they can help retailers to reduce their carbon footprints.
She also noted that Simply Doughnuts was continuing to set a good example in terms of its commitment to diversity, and helping people from disadvantaged backgrounds to develop their employability skills.
