Popular Somerset farm shop and restaurant Teals gains special status

A POPULAR Somerset food market and eatery has been recognised as a leading business.

Teals, off the A303 at South Cadbury, is a farm shop offering produce grown locally, as well as boasting a butchery and restaurant – both featuring menus sourced in the area.

Now, the venue has been awarded B Corp Certification, which recognises businesses’ commitments to ‘balance profit and purpose’.

“We’re incredibly proud of the work the team has put in to enable us to meet B Corp’s rigorous performance measures,” a spokesperson said.

“Our values have always included balancing the interests of all our stakeholders, not least the communities in which we find ourselves, and its great to know we’re doing okay on that front.

“As both a retail and hospitality business we are in a unique position to connect our region’s wonderful producers with customers and other businesses, something the B Corp evaluation process complimented us on.

“Rather than certification being the end of the process however, we’re seeing it as the start of the next stage and already looking at what we can do differently and better in the areas of people and planet.”
