Pachacuti is extremely proud to announce that we have been awarded a Big Tick from Business in the Community. The award is for the Sustainable Fair Trade Management System which has been implemented at Pachacuti for the past two years, resulting in sustained progress towards Millenium Development Goals amongst our producer groups. We will receive our Big Tick at an Awards ceremony next week.
Moreover, we have been shortlisted as an Example of Excellence in the International category for our work towards Millenium Development Goals and helping to create a replicable model for international development through the SFTMS. The overall Example of Excellence in the International Category will be presented by Prince Charles on 5th July. Pachacuti is running alongside Barclays Bank, Thomson Reuter and Cisco Systems for this coveted award.
The Awards for Excellence reward businesses who demonstrate the positive impact they have had on society and also the business benefits created by ensuring that being responsible is integral to their business model.
