FIRST, founded by Rupert Goodman DL, and their esteemed panel headed by Lord Cormack and Lord Judge sift through many nominations from across the globe for businesses and ventures making a success but with a model built on social conscience. This year Guy Watson the founder and chair of the Fresh veg box Delivery Company Riverford Farms was the British business winner along with three others from the rest of the world.
First’s philosophy is to recognise successful businesses which go beyond looking at the bottom line profits and dividends only but also look after their employees, the ecology, and generally have a wholesome approach to business.
The Reception was hosted at the splendid Long Gallery in the Lancaster House among Lords, Baronesses, Ambassadors and Business CEO’s.
