Löfbergs is the winner of Nordic Choice Hotels's Sustainability Award. The family-owned coffee roaster is awarded for its genuine and long-term sustainability work.
- Our suppliers are very important for us to be successful in our sustainability work; that is what we want to pay attention to with this award. Löfbergs really deserves this award and is a worthy winner, says Catherine Delhi, sustainability manager at Nordic Choice Hotels.
The jury's statement:
"Löfbergs has worked for a long time with sustainability and always puts ethics, social responsibility and environment first. There are few that work with sustainability as whole-heartedly and consistent as Löfbergs.
