Doing our bit
It’s not just about creating delicious food. We feel it’s our duty to do all we can to help the friends and family of our team, the local community, and the charities that are close to our hearts.
Business as a force for good
When Charlie started our company from his kitchen table nearly 25 years ago, he had one ambition: to create a brilliant food business that would stand the test of time. And from the start that has meant working extra hard to look after our people, our community and the environment.
So we’re incredibly proud to have been awarded the B Corp certification, granted only to organisations using business as a force for good. But it doesn’t end there – the B Corp team have already helped us set new targets for water consumption, energy use and carbon drawdown. We want to keep getting better and better each day, and becoming a B Corporation is a fantastic way to make sure we do just that.
Our Good Causes
We are proud to work in partnership with City Harvest, an organisation that provides surplus food to those who might otherwise go hungry by providing delicious ingredients to homeless shelters, soup kitchens, after school programs, centres for veterans and organisations that help those with addiction issues.
Beating Bowel Cancer
In 2015, our head of brand, George Blyth was diagnosed with Bowel cancer. After a heroic and inspirational journey, George peacefully lost his fight on November 18th 2016. A keen cyclist, George had the mantra “don’t stop spinning”. We at Bigham’s are determined to keep spinning ourselves by doing our bit towards the charity of George’s choice, Beating Bowel Cancer.
Magic Breakfast provides a free and nutritious breakfast to 48, 000 school children, ensuring no child is too hungry too learn. Missing breakfast can mean a child is too hungry to concentrate for a half-day of lessons, every day. Our support helps Magic Breakfast feed pupils at over 480 Primary, Secondary and ASL/Special Educational Needs schools, plus Pupil Referral Units.
Classroom in the Clouds
We’re thrilled to support Classroom in the Clouds, who provide affordable, accessible and sustainable education, in earthquake-resistant classrooms, to children who need it most in Nepal.
