The Clean Kilo has won FedEx Express’ Small Business Grant UK competition and is to receive £20,000 to support its international growth.
Suzero has received the runner-up prize of £10,000 to expand its international reach and connect with new customers to grow business.
“We are over the moon to have won the FedEx Small Business Grant, 2018,” said Tom Pell and Jeannette Wong, of The Clean Kilo. “The £20,000 grant will enable us to reduce plastic pollution on a far greater level and help open the door for a second plastic free supermarket.
“We want to offer our knowledge on environmental issues and plastic-free shopping in the world’s most polluted developing countries. With the FedEx grant we can have a greater impact to turn off the plastic pollution tap.”
