Houston & Hawkes becomes B Corp certified

Houston & Hawkes has become the first contract catering business in the UK to become B Corp certified.

By becoming a certified B Corp, and with a score of 110.6, the independent foodservice caterer commits to using business as a force for good to benefit all people, communities, and the planet through a continuous improvement process.

B Corp is an incredibly demanding certification and assesses an organisation’s social and environmental performance with over 300 questions across five key pillars: governance; workers; customers; communities; and the environment to measure, understand and improve their social and environmental impact.

Dave Hawkes, Co-Director of Houston & Hawkes, commented: “Since starting Houston & Hawkes in 2019, we have worked hard to build our business around a set of key guiding sustainability and social principles. The B Corp assessment has been an extremely demanding yet rewarding process to have gone through and we are a better, more sustainably focused and socially aware organisation as a result. After nearly two years of rigorous assessments, we are delighted and incredibly proud to have achieved B Corp certification and we look forward to continually challenging ourselves to further enhance our social and environmental impact and bring increased value to our clients, customers, supply partners, and our teams.”
