It’s been a bumper year for Teapigs after the brand scooped an impressive 18 accolades in the Great Taste Awards.
One of the blends to receive praise was Everyday Brew, which sees Teapigs donate five-15p from every pack sold to the Point Foundation, an organisation that supports orphans and vulnerable young people in Rwanda.
Co-founder, Louise Cheadle, commented: “We’re really excited about these awards and we’re looking forward to bringing even more quality teas to the range. We do our best to source the best quality and best-tasting tea out there and it’s brilliant to get feedback like this. Since day one, we’ve been on a mission to get people drinking real tea again so it’s fantastic to be recognised for the work we’ve done so far.”
Plant Powered Expo is the latest addition to the show calendar.
Planned to follow Veganuary 2020, the new exhibition takes place on February 1-2 at London’s Olympia, focusing on the ever-growing plant-based vegan market.
The event, which is sponsored by Bute Island Foods, will play host to 235 stands, alongside 12 features, and is expected to draw an estimated 15,000 attendees overall. It is built around businesses, brands and product launches, with a focus on shopping and the feel-good factor from living plant-based.
Among the attractions, there will be a pre-show drinks reception welcoming exhibitors, guests, trade and media on the Friday evening before the show, the New Product Showcase, and the Plant Powered Excellence Awards, celebrating the best plant-based products on the market.

Ethical cleaning company Bio-D has seen a 100% increase in sales of its refills products over the past year.
The Hull-based business is the UK’s leading manufacturer of environmentally responsible, ethically sound, hypoallergenic, vegan cleaning products, producing five litre and 15 litre refill versions of their cleaning products in a bid to reduce the use of single-use plastics.
Bio-D has spent 2019 focusing on increasing the number of products available in refill sizes – recently adding 5L refills of Bathroom Cleaner, lavender scented Washing-Up Liquid and Glass and Mirror Cleaner to the range.
Lloyd Atkin, Managing Director of Bio-D, said: “One of our main values as an eco-friendly business is to help reduce waste in any way possible, so its brilliant to see that sales of our refill bottles have increased so significantly.
“Climate change is a topic very much at the forefront of everyone’s mind, and it’s great that people are taking notice and making an effort to help reduce their carbon footprint.”
Founded in 1989, Bio-D create cleaning products that don’t cost the earth in any sense, using plant-based and naturally derived ingredients, and 100% recyclable bottled packaging. Over 84% of bottled packaging is also created from recycled materials that may have otherwise ended up in landfill.
Last year saw Bio-D also sign up to The New Plastics Economy Global Commitment, led by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation. Drawing a line in the sand and supporting a vision where plastics never become waste, businesses that have signed up to the commitment aim to eliminate single-use plastics from their operations and invest in new technology so that 100% of their packaging can be recycled by 2025.
