Frasers, a sustainable events venue based on a beautiful private estate and eco farm in Kent, has been announced as a winner at the inaugural 2023 Sustainable Wedding Awards. The awards recognise businesses and venues demonstrating a commitment to environmental sustainability, ethical business practices, and social responsibility.
Kent’s very own Frasers scooped the coveted Sustainable Supply Chain Award, reflecting the company’s commitment to reducing its environmental impact and promoting sustainability through its responsible sourcing strategy. In addition, the local lovely was highly commended in the Sustainable Change Maker category in recognition of its efforts to encourage greater awareness and action through advocacy and example of best practice.
The venue boasts a range of sustainable features that have helped it to secure this title. They include solar panels, rainwater harvesting and waste recycling. Frasers’ commitment also extends to its catering, which uses locally-sourced produce from artisan Kent and Sussex suppliers and ingredients fresh from the farm and home-grown in the ample on-site kitchen garden. The judges commented, “Frasers has considered its whole supply chain from energy to water to closed loop growing and is clearly aiming to improve further by seeking a Growing Green grant.”
Lisa Fraser, the venue’s owner, says, “We’re thrilled to have been recognised in this way. Our team is passionate about creating a venue that not only provides an unforgettable experience for wedding couples and their guests, but also contributes positively to the environment and the local rural economy. This award is testimony to our commitment to sustainability in all that we do, and we’ll continue to strive for excellence in this area.”
