A GLOUCESTER Road cake shop has picked up a silver award for its commitment to using Fairtrade products.
Owner of Cake, Abi Smith, not only uses Fairtrade products in her baking, but also uses Fairtrade items in her shop, such as cotton aprons and tea towels.
Abi said: "We place a huge importance in supporting our local community with all of our fruit and many other ingredients purchased on the Gloucester Road, so I thought why not support other communities around the world when buying products like cocoa and nuts.
"The ingredients we use are of highest quality and we feel that paying a few extra pence towards a better ingredient ensures not only a good cake, but support for the people and growers of these products."
The Fairtrade Business Awards, which took place at Bristol's City Hall on March 6, aims to increase support for Fairtrade among local businesses, by promoting businesses that support Fairtrade and encourage others to do so.
Abi says that she now has her sights set on gold.
