QUEEN'S AWARD WINNER
Green Gourmet are honoured to be announced winners of the Queen’s Award for Enterprise 2017 – the UK’s highest accolade for business success.
Our award has been received for Innovation.
Green Gourmet developed a portion controlled chicken breast fillet for school catering. Having recognised the need for consistently sized, ethically sourced chicken portions for schools we identified a part of the chicken breast that could be utilised to provide the required protein.
Working with suppliers and producers, we developed a process to make chicken portions to a consistent 57 gram weight. By owning several steps of the process Green Gourmet can maintain quality control and by outsourcing manufacturing, reduce costs of production.
“Receiving the Queens Award is a great recognition for the hard work the whole team has put in over the last five years. Because Green Gourmet is an innovation company, we fully understand the benefits we bring to the market with our products, however, the Queens Award gives us a stamp of approval to give to customers. I think it will open up a wealth of new opportunities for us."
