Breadcraft Runners Up in 2019 Sustainable Business Network Awards

Last week we were runners up in the 2019 Sustainable Business Network Awards with our brand Rebel Bakehouse, recognising our work in Transforming Food. In less than a year we’ve not only launched our range of Rebel wraps that are good for you and good for the planet, we’ve also successfully farmed crickets, sourced local hemp and wheat from right here in the mighty Wairarapa. Congratulations to Chia Sisters who won in the Transforming Food Category, it’s great to be working alongside other Kiwi companies who are also doing their bit to be more sustainable and reduce their eco-footprint.
