H&H sponsors FOODISM 100 Best Café Category


The team at Heath & Heather are happy to announce that we are sponsoring the Best Café Sector at the FOODISM 100 Awards, taking place in Greenwich Market on the 24th January 2019.

FOODISM 100 celebrates positive change within the industry. This could be anything from environmental sustainability through careful sourcing and transparent supply chains to using food to helping ex-offenders get a second chance through food and drink.
