Social enterprises at CGI

All over the world there are social enterprises contributing to social justice and ensuring equal opportunities for disadvantaged people. We recognise that we can make a difference to the communities around us by buying from UK based social enterprises and showing them our support in the great work that they do. We are committed to being a responsible business here at CGI UK and where possible include social enterprises in our supply chain.

Examples of social enterprises we support

Just a few of the social enterprises we are proud to have supported over the past year include:


Divine Chocolate logo


Divine Chocolate

A global social enterprise formed around growing a farmer owned chocolate company, creating dignified trading relations and empowering producers. Their aim is to empower women cocoa farmers in Kuapa Kokoo, Ghanda to address gender equality in the cocoa supply chain. We think sustainably sourced and social enterprise supported chocolate makes a great gift to our members.

Redemption Roasters

The world’s first prison-based coffee company. With their roastery and barista academies inside the walls of prisons across the country, their work gives offenders training and skills to help them in gaining employment as they reintegrate with society as prison leavers in coffee shops or with Redemption Roasters own wholesale clients.
