Speaker Bio

Guy Singh-Watson has over the last 35+ years taken Riverford from one man and a wheelbarrow delivering homegrown veg to friends, to a national organic veg box scheme delivering to 70,000 customers a week. Tired of meetings, brands and the assumption that greed is our predominant motivation, Guy converted the business to employee ownership in 2018, using the proceeds to buy a small farm and return to growing organic vegetables. In common with many of Riverford’s co-owners, Guy is an advocate of using business to shape a part of the world, however small, to be kinder, more considerate and sustainable; more like the world most of us want to live in.

A self-professed ‘veg nerd’ Guy’s weekly newsletters connect people to the farm with refreshingly honest accounts of the trials and tribulations of producing organic food, and the occasional rant about farming, and ethical business issues he feels strongly about.
