Jon has many years’ experience of the cooperative food businesses, ranging from small shops to high street organic supermarkets, involving fair-trade & organic foods and with an emphasis on sustainability. Jon has worked at all levels from the shop or factory floor up to the board. The Green Valley Grocer is important to Jon as it is owned by members of the local community, rather than by its workers or by thousands of people all over the UK, and it is therefore firmly rooted in the community. Jon values and seeks to promote the contribution made by Green Valley Grocer to developing local food networks, promoting local food production, providing a great place to buy our food and a good place for the staff team to work. Jon is a member of the Finance sub-group and the Business Planning sub-group.
