Waitrose Foundation (UK Head Office) visits South Africa

May 2022

We enjoyed a very productive week with the visiting delegation from Waitrose in the UK in early May. The first few hours after their arrival were spent at our head office in Stellenbosch for various presentations and on the following days we travelled out to Citrusdal, the Paarl and Wellington area as well as to Grabouw for various meetings and farm visits.

Pictured in the group photo with our South African team are: Stephanie Chafor (Head of Trading, Grocery and Frozen Foods at Waitrose and Non-Executive Director of the Waitrose Foundation Board), Sam Ludlow Taylor (Partner & Senior Manager Human Rights Programmes, John Lewis Parnership), Sir De Villiers Graaff (BT, CEO of De Grendel Estate and Independent Chairperson of the Waitrose Foundation Board), James Rowson (Vice Chairman of the Waitrose Foundation Steering Group and Commercial Director at Primafruit), and Sophie Hiorns (Corporate Responsibility Co-ordinator at Primafruit).
