    In 2023, KP Snacks launched its community cricket pitch programme, aiming to get “Everyone In” to cricket by targeting urban areas and communities that have not previously had access to the sport. This year, the business is installing a further 35 community cricket pitches across the country to create lasting access to cricket. By improving access to sport for different communities and encouraging healthier lifestyles, KP Snacks is supporting both consumers and communities, two key pillars of its People & Planet programme.

    “As we mark a fourth year in our partnership with The Hundred, we are excited to be both launching a new on-pack promotion with our biggest ever prize pool and continuing our ‘Everyone In’ initiative,” said Marketing Director Kevin McNair, “Protecting the wellbeing of current and future generations by encouraging healthier lifestyles is a fundamental element of our People & Planet responsible business programme. With giveaways of cricket equipment planned alongside the continued installation of community pitches, we are proud to be improving access to sports for our communities”
