Chicza – the UK’s first biodegradable gum

A few months ago we reported on Chicza, the first biodegradable chewing gum to go on sale in the UK. It’s a great example of sustainable business, creating jobs in Mexico, stewarding the rainforests, and helping to solve the problem of urban staining here in the UK.

Chicza went on sale this week. Louise has been along to London’s Trafalgar Square to meet the directors and do a taste test, in this exclusive* report for Make Wealth History.
