We have been shortlisted in the Marketplace Leadership Award category sponsored by Fujitsu, over the last number of years we have developed innovative products or services that inspire responsible customer behaviour and encourage more sustainable lifestyles.
Anne Irwin, Suki Tea Co-Founder commented on how proud she was to receive this recognition in an area that we, as a team work very hard at maintaining. Being a leader within our industry, offering customers a wide range of certified products, whilst also being the first UK Tea company to offer a unique triple certified range - Fairtrade, Rainforest Allicance and Organic Certification is something the whole team at Suki Tea are immensely proud of.

Chair of Business in the Community NI, Roy Adair, said: “We are delighted to recognise and celebrate organisations that are doing the right thing by their people, the planet and the places where they operate. Our Awards are a fantastic opportunity, not only to reward responsible business, but also to raise awareness of the great things that Northern Ireland companies are doing throughout the year. We had a considerable increase in entries this year. The standard was exceptionally high, and I think all of our judges found the shortlisting process a challenge. I would like to take this opportunity to wish all of our finalists the very best of luck.”
Kevin Caldwell, Operations Manager at long-term Awards sponsor, Electric Ireland commented: “As a company, we are committed to responsible business and our sponsorship enables us to recognise the enormous contributions that businesses in Northern Ireland make to their local communities.”
