The company has also planted 1,000 trees close to its factory in Poundbury, Dorset with 100 members of its staff.

Alex Naranjo, Marketing Manager at Dorset Cereals said:

“It’s been great working with the Woodland Trust for over 6 years, they’re a charity that are very close to the hearts of the whole team here. We’ve twice helped plant 500 trees in a spot just a five minute walk from our factory and the entire factory and office staff turned out and had a fantastic time doing something genuinely special, with us each knowing which trees we planted so we can watch them grow! It’s a great partnership that is loved by our consumers who like to know about the work the Woodland Trust do and are hugely supportive of the initiatives we run.”
