Triodos Bank provided financial support to Riverford to help them transfer 74% of the company ownership to employees. Founder-owner Guy Singh-Watson completed the move after more than 10 years of research and reflection over the future of the company with a strong desire to protect its independence and values.


Veg box business Riverford was founded in 1987, and since then, the company has grown to more than 650 people, delivering vegetables to 50,000 homes a week. With employee ownership 74% of the company has moved into an Employee Trust, benefiting all employees equally.
Triodos has always helped to create the linkages between the people who are interested in supporting organic farming and those who want a fair return on their money, rather than maximising profit at the cost of everything else. Despite our impressive growth at Riverford over the last 30 years, we're not here for profit. I started the business to produce something useful to the world. Being employee owned will protect our model of sustainable large-scale food production and our ethical values.
