We are particularly proud to have last night been crowned the 2019 Corporate Social Responsibility Award winner at the 10th Family Business Awards!

In a glamourous night at the King Power Stadium in Leicester, our family business owners, husband and wife duo Mark and Yvonne joined other finalists, judges and sponsors at the Family Business Awards Ceremony and Dinner.

Facing stiff competition in the category, we are delighted that our efforts to give back to local communities, the wider society and the environment have been recognised.

‘CSR’ to the Jupiter Group is about a collection of developmental ongoing decisions we make to support our goals in being a good, honest, transparent business led by family values to make the right decisions for our people, our planet and the future of the fresh produce industry.

By actively exercising our purpose we know we will meet our mission ‘to be the first choice fresh produce company for growers, customers and employees globally, by offering outstanding service and opportunity all of the time.’

10th year of the Midlands Family Business Awards

Set up in 2010, the Family Business Awards are a charitable initiative established by the Wilson Organisation with the aim to ‘create an ethical, friendly and supportive community for our region’s family businesses.’

As a proud first generation family business with strong values, it was a real honour to participate in and win!

Great to be recognised

The timing of this award couldn’t be better for us, as our inaugural annual report on using our business as a force for good and changing the landscape of the fresh produce industry for the future will launch in the coming months.

One way in which we ensure that we positively impact our surroundings is through our Nancy Tweddle Foundation, our charitable arm which provides funding to various worthy causes across the globe. Take a wonder around our blog for all the latest projects and developments the foundation has supported and be sure to sign up to our quarterly corporate magazine Global Roots for all the news from around the group.
