Warburtons Community Investment Strategy
As a fifth generation family business, we know how important families are and are committed to helping them thrive by making a positive difference in our communities today, tomorrow and everyday. That’s why our community investment philosophy is simple… “Families Matter”.
We have been involved with our communities for many years but realise there is more we can do. Our strategy aims to ensure we support the local communities we serve while also bringing value to our people and our business.
Our strategy centres around three pillars: health, place and skills. You can read more about our strategy in the below document.
Find out more about our work within the community, including how we can support your projects by reading through the below areas.
Giving and Donating
We have a financial giving programme to support projects, activities and organisations that have charitable aims and will be of real direct benefit to families. We also offer product donations to support local community activities.
Community Investment Reports
Our latest Community Investment Reports provide more information on how we are supporting our communities, from our employee fundraising to our wheat education project.
Cancer Research UK
Everyone at Warburtons has put a tremendous amount of effort, passion and hard work into organising activities up and down the country for Cancer Research UK – from bake sales to bike rides, bungee jumping to climbing wind turbines!
Our National School Visitor Programme has been running for more than 20 years, providing workshops for almost 30,000 young people in primary schools, sharing our knowledge of bread making, food and healthy eating.
Our Farm Visits programme helps to educate families, and allows our wheat farmers to connect with their local communities, build stronger relationships and encourage people to think about the long-term future of farming.
