bio-bean wins at the Made in Central & East England Awards
We’re delighted to share that our team received some well-deserved recognition last night at Insider Media’s Made in Central & East England awards, taking home the Food & Drink Award for our natural extract made from food-grade spent coffee grounds. Hosted by Insider’s Regional Business Editor, Philip Cunliffe, the awards ceremony was a celebration of the achievements of high quality manufacturing and engineering businesses based in the Central & East England region.
Our natural extract is a first-of-its-kind, made from food-grade spent coffee grounds collected from Costa Coffee through a certified supply chain. The extract is certified kosher and halal and offers a truly sustainable and innovative coffee flavour solution for food and beverage manufacturers. By recycling spent grounds we save on greenhouse gas emissions, ensure maximum value from a material previously discarded as waste and contribute to the circular economy.
Winning this regional award automatically enters us as a finalist in the same award category at the Made in the UK event, to be held later this year.
