Hawksmoor is the first UK restaurant business to become a Certified B Corp

We are proud to announce that our portfolio company Hawksmoor has become a Certified B Corp. Hawksmoor joins a global community of businesses audited and proven to meet high environmental and social standards, accountability, and transparency. Huw Gott, Co-Founder said “This is one of our most significant achievements. Hawksmoor has always been about more than the bottom line. 16 years ago we set out to start a restaurant and a business we could be proud of, doing things with integrity and having a positive impact. Becoming a B Corp is a statement of intent that we will always set the bar as high as possible in the interests of our team, customers and suppliers, as well as the planet. And it is a high bar – as far as we know no other UK restaurant group has achieved it.”

Under Graphite’s ownership, Hawksmoor has more than doubled the number of its highly successful premium steak restaurants in London and the UK regions. In 2021, the first international Hawksmoor opened to critical acclaim in New York.
