Best Living Koko birthday present ever!!  We won the 2023 Melton Business Award for Sustainability, Products and Process ❤️❤️🤸🏿‍♀️🤸🏿‍♀️🌈🌈🌈

So grateful to be able to activate our business in @cityofmeltonofficial on Wurundjeri country ❤️

This award for us not only acknowledges the way we run our business but also acknowledges our parents, grandparents our ancestors who came from humble beginnings and were zero waste out of financial hardship and also their love for the environment. From their teachings on how they honoured land and community we continue this under Living Koko.

Thank you to everyone who has supported what we do and connected with our products. It’s 2023 and we have so much power in our consumer choices. We appreciate those who choose sustainability and the future of not just the planet/environment but of the unseen communities tending to the land and our “ingredients” or clothing. Big shout out to @beeresponsible_ and @korvai_au two incredible women led businesses leading the way in sustainability in the West. ❤️

Acknowledging Rosie and Saleimoa Vaai from @savaiikoko for all their work to support local growers to ensure we receive a premium koko bean.

Thank you @cityofmeltonofficial Venture Melton, @crlaracarli and everyone involved in making last night and the huge lead up a success.
