Daniel Roberts wins January's Shell LiveWIRE Smarter Future Award

Tue, 03 March 2015

Daniel Roberts won January’s £5,000 Shell LiveWIRE Smarter Future Award for his business, BananaBerry.
BananaBerry is a social enterprise that utilises surplus fruit and vegetables to create smoothies, fresh to order, for offices and events in London with 10p from every bottle sold going to Cancer Research UK. BananaBerry deliver their home-made smoothies via pedal power, thus helping to reduce their carbon footprint. BananaBerry are hoping to launch a new product in the near future, a sorbet made from the surplus pulp that is a by-product from their smoothies, thus creating more products from the surplus fruit and vegetables. BananaBerry are hoping to encourage others to utilise surplus food by investing in a production kitchen, allowing others to access space to make their products from surplus.  
Commiserations to Adam Drury (Stable Earth), Michael Findlater (Notio Studio), Mason Holden (Admium), Damian Oracki (Showslice UK), who were shortlisted but did not win this time and are encouraged to reapply.
