Owens Coffee Win at Soil Association BOOM Awards 2019!
Owens Coffee crowned as the best of organic!
Owens Coffee, a South West based company, was recognised as the Best of Organic in the Coffee sub category in June as the winners of the Best of Organic Market (BOOM) awards were announced at a prestigious ceremony at Oval Space, London. Run by Soil Association Certification, the UK’s largest organic certification body, the BOOM awards ceremony saw organic brands, products and people crowned as the best in their field.
Owens was started on 2010 by owner/director Lorraine Bridden. The company ethos is to only use organic and fairtrade coffee beans to roast cleanly and with precision at the Roastery in Ivybridge. The Roastery also has a state of the art training facility, together with space for corporate hire. There are currently 10 different coffee blends and single origin coffees available, as well as tea, hot chocolate and ancillary products.
The awards were attended by over 300 guests from major retailers, organic brands and industry
figures who came together to celebrate the best of organic. Prizes were awarded to food and drink products judged on their taste and quality by expert panels from the industry.
Lorraine said ‘We are delighted here at Owens to have the teams hard work recognised and will continue to produce a fantastic quality product that is only ever 100% organic.’
Clare McDermott, Business Development Director for Soil Association Certification, said:
“The organic market is booming, with more people than ever looking for, talking about and choosing
organic. Small steps can make a big difference in supporting our environment, and by choosing
organic we are all playing our part in supporting a more sustainable food system, working with
nature to protect the soil, encourage wildlife, avoid antibiotics and reduce pesticide use.
“Organic businesses have always been innovators and pioneers, and I’m delighted that we’ve been-able to celebrate some of the very best through the BOOM awards, which get bigger and better each
