Wholesaler founder pens new book
The man behind Cotswold Fayre is offering his insights into how businesses can make a positive difference in a new book.
Paul Hargreaves, CEO of the fine food wholesaler, has written Forces for Good, which examines how businesses can make a positive difference in the world and help reverse the injustice that seems to be increasing year by year.
Paul started the business 20 years ago with the aim of changing the world for the better and ambitiously took on three addicts within his first five employees. He explains that he realised fairly soon that perhaps it may be better to establish a sustainable business first before taking on the world.
Paul says he has always believed that successful businesses value their own people and those within the supply chain and are passionate custodians of our planet. He has also for many years invested time and company resources into an orphanage and schools in one of the poorest parts of the world, western Kenya.
Forces for Good gives examples of the changes that we and many other businesses in the UK have made in order to create a better world. There are loads of practical examples of how you can do your part, whether you are a business owner, start-up, manager or influencer within your business to improve your triple bottom line (people, planet, profit).
