Plant-ex Ingredients Ltd have been proudly supporting Young Bristol by fundraising for us over the last 12 months. In 2018 Plant-Ex’s Managing Director, Giles Drewett, ran the London Marathon on behalf of our charity after which he kindly offered to continue his support of our work with young people.
Plant-ex Ingredients manufacture Natural Food Colours, Flavours and Extracts for supply into food manufacturing, with factories in both Avonmouth and Turkey, the company has a team of 65 people focused on developing great tastes for supply across the world. A strong advocate for training young people, Plant-ex’ team has three apprentices currently working in the business, and has retained the services of two further employees who went through the apprentice programme.
Managing Director Giles Drewett and the Warehouse Operative Apprentice Oscar Mansell met up with our Development and Fundraising manager Lucy Saunders to present a generous cheque at our Pooles Wharf site.
We are so grateful for the effort the Plant-Ex team have made in getting to know our charity and being great advocates as well as fundraisers.
