Fresh founder Nick Porter added: "We’ve been fortunate enough over recent years to be recognised for both our work and our business but this has to be fresh’s proudest achievement to date. It’s confirmation of the ethos and spirit of fresh, the working environment and culture which has clearly underpinned our success as a business and enabled our rapid growth in just seven years of trading."
