"B&G is extremely proud to be supporting 11th Hour Racing Team," said Simon Conder, Head of Global Brand, B&G. "We recently added sustainability as one of our long-term B&G core pillars and look forward to our own sustainability journey ahead, so partnering with the team, in their mission to promote change, benefitting the health of our ocean, and for success in the next edition of The Ocean Race 2022/23, makes for an exciting and perfect partnership."
