What can Roberts Bakery do to improve its score?

The above benchmark score that Roberts Bakery is awarded on The Good Shopping Guide’s Ethical Bread Ratings Table is the result of an evaluation of multiple ethical criteria.

As Roberts Bakery already receives a top score in the Ethical Bread sector, The Good Shopping Guide encourages it to get in touch and apply for Ethical Accreditation. After sending in its application, Roberts Bakery will be offered the use of The Good Shopping Guide Ethical Mark.

However we would encourage Roberts Bakery to gain some Organic certification and cease its use of Palm Oil in order to improve its score. If Roberts Bakery applies for Ethical Accreditation, The Good Shopping Guide would be able to offer some guidance on this.
