Lily’s Kitchen Pet Food Company Supporting Acceptance & Equality
From Pet Gazette: Lily’s Kitchen has announced a unique partnership with Stonewall, Britain’s leading charity for lesbian, gay, bi and trans equality, as part of its commitment to embrace diversity and promote equal rights for all. Lily’s Kitchen, the first pet food company in the UK to partner with Stonewall, is supporting the campaigning charity’s mission to create acceptance and equality for those that identify as lesbian, gay, bi and trans. A personal supporter of diversity, Henrietta Morrison, CEO and founder of Lily’s Kitchen, explains: “Love is at the heart of everything we do as a business and anyone who has a pet knows and understands what unconditional love is – it knows no boundaries and touches everyone regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identify. “This year, we’re delighted to be supporting the good work of Stonewall who empower individuals and give them a voice, and campaign for changes in perception amongst governments, organisations and wider society in order to embrace diversity and bring true equality.” Certified B Corp Lily’s Kitchen believes in using business as a force for good and will be announcing a series of initiatives to support Stonewall and the wider LGBT community, which will send a strong message, not just to the 71% of LGBT adults who own pets, but to people everywhere – that love knows no boundaries. Stonewall said that having Lily’s Kitchen’s support will help it achieve its aims in the UK and abroad. Holly Christie, head of corporate partnerships at Stonewall added: “We’re grateful Lily’s Kitchen has decided to come out for LGBT people by supporting Stonewall. The support of Lily’s Kitchen means we’ll be able to continue our work to help bring forward the day where every person can be accepted without exception.” In addition to its support for Stonewall, Lily’s Kitchen has also signed up to be an official partner of Pride in London 2018.
