Retailer shortlisted for awards

Booths has been shortlisted as a finalist in the prestigious Responsible Business Awards.

Booths, which locally has supermarkets in Carnforth, Torrisholme and Lancaster, is one of a handful of companies competing for national status.

Run by charity Business in the Community (BITC), the Responsible Business Awards is the UK’s longest-running and most respected corporate responsibility awards, championing UK businesses that tackle key social and environmental issues.

Booths is one of only four companies shortlisted in the Samworth Brothers Rural Action Award, which recognises businesses that support rural communities to maintain a vibrant, sustainable and prosperous rural economy for the benefit of future generations.

Sixty-three companies have been selected as award finalists from the UK and abroad, across the 14 award categories of the scheme.

Stephen Howard, Chief Executive, Business in the Community said: “The Responsible Business Awards give much needed visibility to organisations who are putting responsible behaviour at the heart of how they do business. The finalists are each playing their part to create a fairer society and more sustainable future.”
