No doubt against their own wishes, we'd like to let you know about something the rest of us are really thrilled about here at Pukka. Our co-founders, Tim and Seb, were given an outstanding achievement award at the Natural and Organic Products Awards at the end of April.
Hosted by leading trade magazine Natural Products News, in association with the Soil Association, these annual awards bring together over 400 industry professionals to recognise and celebrate the standout brands, products and people of the year.
Jim Manson, the editor of Natural and Organic Products Magazine described Pukka’s humble origins (which began in a spare bedroom after Tim and Seb contacted each other through a small ad in a Bristol newspaper) saying: “Their company, Pukka Herbs, has grown to become one of the best known names in the health food trade, and an organic ambassador brand around world. And while it has been a remarkable commercial success story, the company – and its founders – still inspire the affection of its original supporters, the independent health food retailers.”
Well done Tim and Seb on your ongoing mission to help people find a happier, healthier and tastier lifestyle.
Also well done to Pukka's Bridget Cole for being nominated finalist for the Sales Person of the year award. And last but not least, our Womankind tea was a finalist in the best new drinks category and our Night Time capsules were a finalist in the best new heath nutrition category.
