Social enterprise Locavore is celebrating two landmarks with its inclusion in the Small Biz 100 and being awarded Living Wage Employer status by the Living Wage Foundation.

The organic store in Strathbungo joins small business from around the UK as part of the Small Business Saturday initiative launched in Scotland last week, encouraging people to shop locally with independent businesses.

Reuben Chesters, managing director, said: “It’s fantastic to have been selected. As a social enterprise all about buying locally and supporting a sustainable local food economy, Small Business Saturday is a great fit. I think small businesses and social enterprises in particular deserve more support.

“We’re delighted also to have been award the Living Wage Employer Mark which recognises that we now pay all our staff at least the living wage of £7.85 per hour.”
