What does it mean to be a Social Enterprise?
We are thrilled to be accredited as a member of Social Enterprise UK – only business’ that genuinely have social ethics at their core and want to make a positive difference in the way they run their business and look after their team; can promote themselves as a social enterprise.
The badge is a guarantee that we put the interests of people & the planet above profits. Being a Social Enterprise makes a statement about our social values and differentiates us from other businesses.
Before Cat Gazzoli founded Piccolo, she was a new mum and had already started to notice that there were limited choices when it came to widely available organic, natural baby foods. Her vision was about far more than simply creating a profitable business.
“I wanted to bring people back around the kitchen table and create a brand that gives back to food education,” explains Cat. “I’m obsessed with good, fair food; I could never create something purely for profit. It’s about so much more than that.”
This principle of good, fair food resonates with the entire Piccolo team as well as the parents of the little ones who purchase our pouches.
