Cafédirect, one of the UK’s most successful and recognised social enterprises, turns 30 this year. To mark this milestone we’re hosting an online interview with their CEO, John Steel, to find out more about the incredible impact the business has had over the last three decades.
From being a pioneer of the Fairtrade movement to being named UK Social Enterprise of the Year in 2018, Cafédirect’s story has been one of transforming the coffee industry to put people and planet first. With the coffee industry characterised by low pay and exploitation, Cafédirect is challenging the inequalities in the market by showing that another way of doing business is possible.
Join us to look back at the last 30 years and also to look ahead to how the social enterprise plans to continue to empower farmers in a future that is increasingly shaped by the climate emergency.
