Hull Organics Company Named Runner Up At Outstanding Awards

The Arthur St Trading Co is runner up in the ethical leadership category in the Outstanding Young Persons Awards 2008.

Hull, 25th November 2008 – Hull based co-operative, Arthur St Trading Company was among the final candidates at the OYP Awards 2008, for their achievement in ethical leadership.

The company, which has a strong ethical philosophy, has been operating in Hull for over nine years as a not-for-profit workers co-operative, delivering organic fresh produce and groceries to homes within a fifteen mile radius of the city, the majority of which are delivered by a converted milk float that is recharged by solar power.

The award was presented to Alison Wileman, who currently handles the marketing for Arthurs. Her entry, which detailed her achievements for the co-op, including how she bridges the gap between the strong ethical nature of the company and the general publics awareness of organic produce and sustainability, impressed the judges and was shortlisted in October.

Arthur St Trading Company Director, Graham Brooks said “Alison got in touch with us initially as a customer, and started asking the kinds of questions that made us feel more confident about what we do and why and how we do it. She is a conscientious consumer, like a lot of people locally, and wanted to know how we dealt with issues such as food miles and local produce, and what advantages our box scheme had over buying organic produce from the supermarket.  We knew we simply weren’t making the most of our opportunities to get our message across and realised that we needed someone with knowledge and expertise to broaden our product range and accessibility and hopefully spread the news that in Hull we have people and businesses that truly care about sustainability and the environment.  It’s been a hard year with the credit crunch, but Alison has and continues to be a catalyst for so many good things that are now beginning to bear fruit for our organisation. I am very proud of this achievement.”

The awards took place on 20th November, at the Ramada Jarvis in Hull.
