Why Riverford

Why Riverford?

Every week, Riverford delivers organic food to around 60,000 homes across the UK. This takes loads of brilliant people, from growers to IT experts, and more besides!

We’re a friendly, forward-thinking bunch, and our three core values – Stronger Together, Do Things Well and Independence – run through everything we do. We celebrate diversity, valuing, supporting and developing the whole person as an equal opportunities employer.

Success means much more than just profits; we want Riverford to be a place people enjoy coming to work, and a business our co-owners feel proud of.

What’s a co-owner?

‘Co-owner’ is what we call ourselves instead of ‘employees’ or ‘staff’. In 2018, Riverford became employee owned, so working here makes you a co-owner. It’s not just a name; every co-owner can play a part in shaping our business.
