Last week was this year's #StrategyWeek here at Czarnikow. We've shared new ideas, reviewed projects and reconnected with the core strategies at the heart of everything we do. As we move into some new and exciting chapters for the company, it was encouraging to be reminded of the teamwork, entrepreneurship and support that runs through the business.
We'd like to thank our colleagues from around the world who travelled to #London to take part in the week, and also to everyone who worked hard to implement last year's strategic aims and envision this year's.

Yesterday we had our last Summer walking tour with Cotours - a fascinating walk around the City of London learning about the history of commodities trading in the area.
Did you know that the London Stock Exchange started in Jonathan's Coffee-House? Pineapples, which we have started to work with as part of our expansion into ingredients, were once one of the most sought-after signifiers of wealth and were even hired out by the hour!
There was so much to discover on our doorstep - what stories are there from your city's history? #london #coffee #walk #didyouknow #history
At Czarnikow, we seek to broaden and deepen our relationships to create a strong network from which we can create value.
A central part of our network is our people, and you can find out more about our recruitment process and how the work of our HR team supports our strategy in the most recent blog post on our website here http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vM4Nb

We are thrilled that VIVE's work with the ProTerra Foundation has a very successful first three months. Following the benchmark, participants are able to review their performance against ProTerra's requirements. This also allows participants achieving the VIVE Claim Level to demonstrate compliance to ProTerra Certification.
We look forward to continuing this work, and you can find out more at http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vMiGc

This week the Czarnikow London team took part in the annual Standard Chartered Great City Race, a 5km run through the heart of the City of #London. The race is run in aid Futuremakers, a global initiative to tackle #inequality and promote greater economic #inclusion for young people in our communities.
A group ranging from first time 5k racers to seasoned ultra-runners took part, and despite the (relative) heat, all managed fantastic times. The SCB City Race record for Czarnikow fell by well over a minute, and the Czarnikow team secured 24th spot out of 787 teams. A fantastic achievement and a high bar set for the future!

Very excited to have had India and Sharon from Teach A Man To Fish visit us today to tell us more about the #SchoolEnterpriseChallenge #mentorship programme. The programme supports schools across the world in setting up and running small businesses, leading to higher employment for young people and increased resources for schools.
Some of our Czarnikow team will be joining as mentors next week. They will be supporting teachers at the schools that are taking part in the challenge, and we look forward to hearing how the schools' ideas progress.

Every year they reach thousands of children , and as part of our relationship with them our team have been to volunteer a few times. Here is Will in Malawi at a rugby tournament
