Bakkavor, the UK’s leading provider of fresh prepared food, is proud to be this year’s main sponsor of the Stamford Diversity Festival, which takes place in the town’s Recreation Ground on August Bank Holiday Monday.

The Festival presents a day’s celebration of world music, street art and food and drink, with the ambition of making Stamford and its surrounding areas a welcoming community that celebrates inclusion, equality and diversity.

As a business Bakkavor also invests in inclusion and diversity, both in the workplace and the communities in which it operates. Bakkavor employs around 19,000 people from more than 90 countries and believes that the cultural diversity of its workforce is one of its key strengths.

The business is one of the main employers in the Lincolnshire region and is delighted to be able to sponsor the event as well as take part in the celebration of diversity and inclusion during the day itself.

Sally Barrett-Jolley, Head of Corporate Affairs at Bakkavor, comments: “We’re delighted to be the main sponsor of the 2022 Stamford Diversity Festival as we share the same values of celebrating diversity and helping society to become more inclusive and fairer for everyone. The festival is a great way to champion important cultural and social issues through the positivity and richness of art, music and great-tasting food.”

The Festival begins at 11am on Monday 29 August.
