Our sponsors, Green & Black’s, deserve a special mention. In 1991 Green & Black’s started producing organic chocolate using ethical business standards and so introduced the UK’s first Fair Trade mark. Today these excellent traditions encourage farming methods that support biodiversity. Its Ethical Sourcing Standards are based on International Labour Organisation Conventions, theUN Declaration of Human Rights, the Ethical Initiative Basecode and take into account the Soil Association Organic Standards.
We feel proud to associate our Chelsea Flower Show garden with an outstanding exemplar of ethical business practice.
