Australia's most prestigious environmental award...
On Friday 27th July 2009, Ferguson Plarre Bakehouses were officially named as the winners of the 2009 Origin Gold Banksia Award for excellence in sustainability. There is no other award held in such high esteem as the Banksia's and we're truly honoured and humbled to be the recipients of this year's award.
Both the Ferguson and Plarre families attended the awards along with our key staff members. We're very excited to be helping to ensure our future generations inherit a world worth living in. The best thing is that it feels good to do the right thing and it's good for business too! We encourage all businesses to do the same thing.
We commit to the Australian public and the world that we will continue to reduce our carbon & water footprint and where necessary offset emissions via tree planting.
Rest assured that Ferguson Plarre cakes and pastries are being made with a smaller and smaller impact on the planet every year. Our ultimate goal is to provide delicious cakes and savouries that will not damage the planet but in fact make it a better place.
