McVitie’s is the nation’s best loved biscuit brand, with a rich 180 year heritage and portfolio of family favourites from Chocolate Digestives to Hobnobs and Jaffa Cakes, consumed by 80% of UK households.
As a business, we have been supporting the mental health of our colleagues through our internal ‘Positive Mind’s’ campaign for several years, with over 100 mental health and wellbeing ambassadors, a commitment to train all line managers on mental health awareness and a 24/7 employee assistance programme, but we knew we could do more.
Biscuits have the ability to start conversations and connect people, which is why we decided to support Mind in its mission to drive awareness around the importance of talking for mental wellbeing through our ‘Let’s Talk’ campaign, encouraging the nation to get chatting over a cuppa and a biccie. As part of our commitment, we are also supporting Mind with the opening of new Time to Change Hubs and training hundreds of new champions in the UK.
