Abel & Cole
Planting the Seeds of positive change
Soil Association and Abel & Cole are no strangers to one another. Abel & Cole have been a Soil Association Certification licensee for many years, delivering organic food to customers' homes. In March 2017 Abel & Cole and the Soil Association charity partnered for the very first time with a joint mission to give schools, and their pupils, a healthy head start.
Abel & Cole are on a mission to help people discover a better and happier way to eat and live, so when they heard about our Food for Life Programme they couldn’t wait to get on board.
Soil Association’s Food for Life programme has been championing good food for all for 10 years and providing expertise, resources and support to guide schools to help make the healthy choice the easy choice for the UK’s growing minds. As part of this partnership, Abel & Cole are on the look-out for ten schools or nurseries to sponsor for our Food For Life School Award and as part of a national ‘call to action’ they have included flyers in customers’ boxes asking them to nominate schools or nurseries to enter the award scheme free of charge.
As well as providing an opportunity for new schools or nurseries to take part in the FFL School Award, the partnership also promotes the vital work of the Soil Association charity to their customers- potential new audiences for the charity.
‘We are very passionate about brilliant food and helping people eat well. While we’re the experts at delivering to people’s houses, entering schools and nurseries was something we in turn needed to find experts for. Soil Association’s Food for Life is precisely this, and so far our customers have responded amazingly well to the partnership.’ –Sara Haglund, Abel & Cole
It’s never too early to invest in health and healthy eating and through our partnership, Abel & Cole are demonstrating to their customers their commitment to real, lasting difference in our communities.
