Hong Kong's original coffee bar brews much more than a nice hot cup.
The Social Enterprise Research Institute has named Uncle Russ Coffee the winner of the Outstanding Social Caring Organisation Award 2016, for giving equal opportunity to all its employees and for promoting community involvement and development.
Nobel Laureate Professor Akira Suzuki also awarded Uncle Russ owner YB Rai with the Asian Social Caring Leadership Award 2016. The award acknowledges outstanding contribution in social-environment protection, human rights, labour standards, anti-corruption, customer care and promoting social awareness between corporations and individuals.
It is a well-deserved recognition for YB, who was a driver behind last year’s Nepal earthquake relief and countless other community projects.
Congratulations YB and Uncle Russ Coffee!
