The 8th Day joins the Fair Tax Mark!

By June 29, 2017News

We’re thrilled to announce that The 8th Day has joined the Fair Tax Mark. Since the 1970s, it has been providing quality food and goods to Manchester through its shop and cafe. It stocks over 5000 lines, including quality health supplements and organic skincare. It also runs a successful event programme and community space.

On gaining the Mark, The 8th Day said: “We’re delighted to have been awarded the Fair Tax Mark, as we strongly believe that it’s important that businesses contribute fairly to society.  We do this by being a good employer and paying a fair wage, dealing fairly and honestly with our suppliers and behaving in a fair and transparent manner in our approach to paying our taxes.”

Emily Kenway, Director of the Fair Tax Mark, added: “The 8th Day is a very well-known and much-loved Manchester business, serving the city since the  1970s. It has a long history of leading on ethics and this commitment goes to show that it walks the walk on good business practices. We’re really pleased to welcome them to the scheme and hope it encourages more to follow suit.”

The 8th Day’s commitment means Mancunians have another great Fair Tax choice, alongside already accredited Unicorn Grocery and The Co-operative Group.
