The Shared Interest team takes great pride in our work to
support fair trade businesses in the developing world.
Over the last month, it has been rewarding to receive external
recognition through the following achievements:

Our £500 prize money will be donated to our charity, Shared
Long-listed by the Guardian Sustainable Business Award in the
Social Impact category, we have become part of the Guardian Sustainable Business Best Practice
Exchange. We are delighted to be part of this network that
shares articles on initiatives demonstrating elements of genuine
innovation and forward thinking.
On the note of looking forward, we have also been announced as
regional finalists of the Private Business Awards. A place on the
regional shortlist means automatic nomination for the national
awards. We find out our fate on 10 July and will of course keep you
updated. Fingers crossed!
This recognition through awards gives us a further opportunity
to thank our Investors and Volunteers for their continued support.
Without our committed supporters, we couldn't continue to strive
for our vision of a world where justice is at the heart of trade
