Social enterprise innovation – lessons learnt from the COVID-19 crisis.
Duration: 46 Minutes 13 Seconds
In our third webinar we talk to Cindy Carpenter, Chair of The Bread and Butter Project, who shares the remarkable story of their business transformation in just two weeks.
The Bread and Butter Project is Australia’s first social enterprise bakery, it invests 100% of its profits into training and employment opportunities for refugees and asylum seekers. Normally operating as a wholesale bakery, the closures of cafes and restaurants due to COVID-19 resulted in a 50% loss in revenue.
The social enterprise has undertaken a complete pivot in its business model to now supply directly to Woolworths Metro and Harris Farm stores to ensure it can keep its doors open and its team of bakers and trainees employed.
If you’re interested in understanding the process behind their pivot, how they engaged buyers and lessons learnt along the way, we hope you’ll enjoy the recording.
