Riverford and their network of franchise owners have exciting news to share with their organic veg box customers this week, as founder and farmer Guy Watson is named Best Organic Farmer and Best Organic Market Innovator at the Soil Association’s BOOM Awards: the annual awards for the organic sector.
It’s a huge honour to be awarded. The Soil Association describes the BOOM Awards as:
"The UK's only awards dedicated to finding and celebrating the amazing businesses producing, processing, serving, selling and delivering fully traceable, food as it should be."
This year is already a big one for Riverford, as it marks 30 years since Guy first started growing organic vegetables on his parents’ Devon farm. Guy is a great role model to many in the food and farming world, and has proven that it’s possible to run an innovative, commercially successful business without ever compromising on its founding principles.
Riverford’s Franchise Services Manager says:
"For our franchisees, being part of a long-standing, award-winning brand means security for their local business. Riverford is loved and trusted by its customers. Winning two BOOM awards is a fantastic acknowledgment of our values, still at the heart of everything we do after 30 years, and reinforces that the business is as respected and successful as ever."
Riverford believe that good food should be available to everyone. Their franchise network plays an integral role in spreading the word, encouraging more people to follow their mantra and Live Life on the Veg.
