Ellis Wharton Wines has become the latest Cornish business to become a certified B Corp.

It is only the third UK wine merchant/distributor to achieve the recognition, closely behind North South Wines in London and fellow Cornish wine merchant Old Chapel Cellars.

It joins a rapidly growing community of Cornish B Corps, which includes the likes of Rodda’s, Origin Coffee, Finisterre and St Eval Candles.

Owner, Charles Wharton, said: “We are incredibly proud to have officially become a B Corp. It’s very rewarding to have our commitment to the highest environmental and social standards validated.”
