IoD Norfolk cordially invites you to dinner with ethical entrepreneur Loui Blake at Erpingham House, in the heart of Norwich’s historic Tombland.
Conscious consumers, those who value green and ethical products and services, are now thought to number around 14 million in the UK. Ethical spending per household has more than doubled and in 2016 was valued at £1,263 per household per year.
Ethical Consumer Markets Report 2017 reveals that sales of ethical products in the UK are continuing, for the fourteenth year in a row, to grow faster than those of ordinary products and are valued at 81.3billion. Ethical Food and Drink has seen the sharpest growth of 9.7% as conventional foods struggle and there’s been a 30% increase in vegetarianism and an even faster rise in veganism.
We will meet for drinks at Erpingham House before going up to the private rooms for an exclusive food tasting experience, where you will have the opportunity to try a range of vegan mains and desserts.
After dinner we will hear from Loui, about his fascinating career and how he embeds ethical practice across all his businesses.
Place at this event are strictly limited, so please do book early.
