Social Enterprise vs. COVID-19: Social Supermarket
One Billion Live’s latest series champions the stories of social enterprises during COVID-19. These businesses are pivoting their existing social missions to ensure not only their own survival but to benefit society at large. In Episode Four, we meet up with Jamie Palmer, founder of Social Supermarket – an e-commerce platform created to connect every-day consumers with social enterprises who sell high quality products that tackle important social and environmental challenges. Since COVID-19 hit, Social Supermarket has managed to drive up sales 500% during this period compared to last year. They now feature over 450 products on their website and are not only sharing their profits with food poverty charity FareShare, they’re also sharing their knowledge with other social enterprises.
