From going vegan in 2018 to becoming the first UK sweets brand to gain B Corp certification last year, we like to do things differently at CKHQ and we love when others do the same. So when we found out about Forest Green Rovers, the world’s first vegan football club, we had to get involved.
Based in Gloucestershire and playing in League One, FGR are steadily climbing the ranks of English football, whilst earning a reputation off the pitch for being the greenest football club in the world.
We thought it was only right that the rebels of the sweet world partnered with the rebels of football. Together we are the underdogs who are challenging the norms within the industries we play in.Shop Now
