In July, we were delighted to support the launch of a new website for local charity, Daily Bread. Although well-known in Northamptonshire, Daily Bread is spreading the message further by making their products available online.
What does Daily Bread do?
Sourcing ethical, wholesome foods locally, and from around the world, the charity’s key objectives are that the vulnerable in the community should be employed and that all workers receive the same pay. With profits re-invested into the organisation, the charity has grown from selling 100 product lines in 1980 to over 5,000 today.
In addition to sourcing only the best foods, Daily Bread is proud of its ethical principles and simple packaging which reflects their environmental concerns. As well as local Northamptonshire honey and smoked garlic, the charity supports ethical products from around the world.
Roger Sawtell, Daily Bread founder, said: “Our whole ethos, right from the start, has been to put people before profit. We are proud to have steadily built and grown this co-operative which is not only an integral part of Northampton and the Midlands but will now be available for the whole country to enjoy.”
Special guest for the event was former Archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams, who joined a presentation to staff, media and local supporters.
The team at Elevations were pleased to donate design time and materials for free. Our contribution included design ideas, construction and installation, plus the use of ipads for staff demos and a donation of two plasma screens to the Daily Bread store.
