St Eval Are Double Winners

Candle company scoops two prestigious titles in annual business awards

St Eval Candle Company has taken home two awards at the Cornwall Business Awards.

They topped the categories for Best Manufacturer and Most Sustainable Business, at the event which is now in its 11th year and was held at the St Mellion International Resort.

The awards, organised and presented by Cornwall Development Company in association with Business Cornwall Magazine and the Cornwall Chamber, celebrate innovation, achievement and entrepreneurial spirit within the Cornish business community. 

The criteria for the impressive judging panel was that “They will reward businesses within Cornwall that are thriving and that are using the county as a base for achieving strong national and even international growth, and those that bring significant benefit to the county.”

“I am delighted that everyone’s efforts here at St Eval Candle Company have been recognised with these two awards. It is fantastic for the team to get a great big pat on the back like this!” said Ian Greaves, Managing Director of St Eval.

St Eval Candle Company was founded over 20 years ago on a working farm and since grown into a thriving and successful business with a core focus on its own sustainability.

There has been the installation of a wind turbine, solar panels on the warehouse roof and a Biomass boiler, which heats all the water used to melt the wax for candle making and recycled packaging is used as much as possible. 

On farmland around the factory, St Eval are working with the RSPB to preserve wild flowers and wildlife, including the endangered Corn Bunting.

The company is now producing enough power now not only for their own needs but to supply back to the local grid.
