Twin has been awarded the International Aid and Development category at the Charity Awards for our work building coffee resilience in Peru. The project spanned three years and was run in collaboration with Marks & Spencer, Matthew Algie, Taylors of Harrogate and two coffee cooperatives in Peru: San Juan del Oro and Pangoa.

Alongside nine other category winners, we were presented with the trophy at a black-tie ceremony at the Tower of London on Wednesday 5 June, hosted by broadcaster, former pop star and Church of England priest the Rev Richard Coles.

The Charity Awards shortlist is chosen by an independent panel of expert judges - all eminent figures in the charity sector. The judges score each entry against six Hallmarks of Excellence before coming together for two days of challenge and discussion to select the winners. The Charity Awards is the longest-running awards scheme in the sector.

Richard Anstead, Managing Director at Twin & Twin Trading, said:

 “Twin has always pioneered new ways of working and this project is another example of how we develop innovative solutions. Working across a whole supply chain proved to be very effective and efficient – all the project partners were able to learn from one another and the results speak for themselves. It’s fantastic to see the hard work awarded and honoured in a prestigious event like this.”
