Technical Consultants to the Produce Industry
Fruit and Veg arrangement

JD Fresh was established in January 2011 as an exciting new company providing technical resource for businesses that find they either do not have the resources to employ a full time technical manager, or to aid existing technical management teams that find extra resource is required, but the employment of another full time technical manager is not an economically viable option.

The business was founded after over 15 years in the Fresh Produce industry working for and with growers, multiple retailer suppliers, and retailers throughout the UK, Europe and also further afield.

During that time in the industry several professional qualifications were gained in Auditing, HACCP, Food safety and various retailer training courses. These include basic, intermediate and advanced HACCP, Advanced Food Safety, Lead Auditor, BRC Internal and Third Party Auditor accreditation. These accompany a BSC in Horticulture gained from Writtle College in 1999.

During the 15 years in the industry tasks performed varied from Farm Management and Agronomy, Crop programming, Internal Auditing, Personnel Induction Documentation collation, Supply Chain Integrity, Supplier Auditing, Technical Management, HACCP Management, Third Party Audit preparation (including BRC and Organic accreditation), Produce Technical Management for a major UK retailer, Crop procurement and purchasing. During this time many of the UK Multiple retailer standards (including Organic Standards) were worked with and interpreted to achieve compliance for both small and large businesses.

While the main focus of the new company is to provide technical resources it is also able to provide procurement solutions through an extensive network of industry contacts gained over the last 15 years, whether in the UK or Europe across a wide range of products.

JD Fresh is based in the South West of England (South Cornwall), but can supply services nationwide, throughout Europe and further afield.
