Redfox Executive Selection and Beanstalk Global have been exclusively commissioned by a client that develops businesses which have a positive impact on the world to source them two new commercial partners.
"Our client’s team is passionate about starting and growing businesses and continues to work with and invest in people and ideas which reflect their sustainable values," according to Max MacGillivray from Red Fox. "Their vision is to meet the increasing demand for fresh, healthy produce farmed in the most efficient and least environmentally damaging manner. The world requires an ever-growing amount of high-quality produce. This cannot be grown at any cost to the environment and as such the way we produce food needs to become more sustainable and less damaging. Our client has met this challenge head on and in doing so created a world first for the fresh food sectors."
The client has a proven track record in the fresh produce industry having raised over £100m to create some of the most unique and innovative growing systems in the UK and Europe. Successfully developing a large number of renewable energy projects and creating a world renowned renewable energy consultancy, the founders have now channeled their passion for clean energy into decarbonising the food chain. Their business was designed to solve serious national issues of food security and agricultural reliance on fossil fuels. Developing a viable solution has taken teams of experts from multiple disciplines to ensure the UK is a step closer to reducing agricultural carbon emissions.
As part of an additional new UK site to their portfolio, they are looking to source two partners to assist them with their strategic objectives and to share their success.
They are looking to source a growing partner to take on all of the growing aspects of a planned protected cropping system with a groundbreaking renewable heating system. This system allows for all the benefits of using a very high-efficiency greenhouse, whilst also not compromising on being able to add additional heat and carbon dioxide. The result being large amounts of high quality, low-carbon input food. The growing partner they seek can either be from the UK or the EU and will already be involved with protected cropping or is looking to diversify into this sector.
They are also wishing to source a marketing partner to handle all the commerciality of the fresh produce grown from the new development.
"As a business you will have extensive retail commercial relationships as well as connections into the food retail and food service sectors. You are looking for UK produce to promote to your extensive customer base and will relish this opportunity to be presented the opportunity to “sell” regional UK Fresh Produce that has been grown on a unique and sustainable basis."
