In 1992 Organix was founded by Lizzie Vann who believed that it was a business that not only could, but should, change society for the better.

We were founded with a vision to create a world where healthy nutritious food was a real choice for everyone by doing three things:

  • creating great food
  • empowering parents
  • challenging the government and food industry

When our first baby foods went on the shelves it was a proud moment. It was organic, tasty and had labelling parents could understand. This set a benchmark and it’s been the way we’ve worked ever since. We want to ensure that what we make, how we sell it and what we say about it creates better choices for children’s health.

Organic farming doesn’t just mean tasty foods. It promotes good standards of animal welfare and protects the environment too. Our organic farmers work with nature to make sure their soil stays healthy. That means restricted use of pesticides and no artificial fertilisers.

All of our ingredients have been grown according to strict organic guidelines and our foods are certified by the Soil Association. This leading UK charity campaigns for planet-friendly organic food and farming. Like us, they believe that healthy soil means healthy people.

Inspirational Jobs – Commercial Administrator Yeo Valley


Blagdon, Bristol

Full time 12 month contract      Closing date:

Friday 8th Jul 2016

Yeo Valley was born out of the entrepreneurial spirit of Roger and Mary Mead, who started making yoghurt on their farm in Blagdon, near Bristol, in 1974; almost by accident. When they opened a tea house they found themselves with a surplus of skimmed milk from the production of clotted cream and decided to have a go at making yoghurt in a couple of milk churns. Soon Lag Farm, where they lived, was converted into a dairy and the family moved into neighbouring Holt Farm.

Launching the Yeo Valley Organic range in 1993 fitted perfectly with Mead’s allegiance to balanced farming. “Everybody who is a farmer deep down understands the balance of animals and nature and crops and rotations, and I think most farmers have an in-built sense of what is the right thing to do,” he says. Care for the land and the animals at Yeo Valley is a prime concern and all production sites are certified by the Soil Association.

The cows have room to roam, their diet consisting of clover-rich grass grown without the use of artificial fertilisers and pesticides. Wildlife is encouraged to flourish and conservation of the land extends to rebuilding limestone walling and placing hedgerows. In an effort to reduce pollution and food miles, lorries transporting Yeo Valley yoghurts are double deckers. The company has twice received the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in recognition of its contribution to sustainable development.

About the opportunity

This is a great opportunity for a Commercial Administrator to join the Yeo Direct team for a 1 year contract based at Yeo Valley HQ in Blagdon.

We are looking for an enthusiastic and self-motivated individual who will be responsible for the day to day administration/coordination and communication of key commercial information.  You will be responsible for event planning, sales analysis and report compilation. You will also assist in organisation, delivery and attending of front line trade events and help coordinate marketing activity & literature in line with key objectives.

Abel and cole
Full time permanent Closing Date:

Wednesday 29th June 2016

Founded in 1988, Abel & Cole is famous for its seasonal organic fruit & veg boxes. We deliver a wide range of fantastic organic food to people’s homes across much of England and South Wales. We represent a refreshing alternative to supermarket shopping, but without being worthy or preachy. No air freight, no silly packaging, no nasty chemicals – just great food produced by people who really love what they do. We deliver to around 80,000 households and we employ about 600 great people. We consider ourselves bold, irreverent, genuine, friendly and honest, and it is crucial that this comes across in all of our marketing.

Project outline

We are firmly based in the market but always seek to develop new and refresh old ways of making our brand stand out. Tied in with this is a desire that has come up time and time again over the years, namely that of having a physical space that we can call our own. One step in this strategy is to launch our very own Abel & Cole Pop Up in September 2016. Food will be at the centre of this project and to this end we are now recruiting a temporary chef to work with the project manager to develop and lead the food element of our Pop Up. This is an exciting role where you’ll be able to have an influence on this brand new project. You will work alongside our in-house food team and translate their recipes to variations adapted to a commercial kitchen. Seasonal, organic and veg focussed (but not necessarily vegetarian) are key words when describing the food. This is a full-time role and shift patterns will include evenings and weekends once the Pop Up is up and running (office hours until then). There will be a Front of House or Restaurant Manager in place in time for the opening.
