Founder, Bread and Jam Festival
Jason has had a varied career as a TV producer, underwater cameraman, author, marine ecologist and olive oil producer. His career in food started when he threw in a 10 year career as a Hollywood TV producer and bought an abandoned olive grove in Le Marche, Italy. He created an olive oil brand called Nudo which was sold around the world and in British stores such as Selfridges, Harrods, John Lewis and Waitrose. After 10 fruitful years Jason successfully exited from the olive oil business and started up Bread & Jam, the UK’s first food founders’ festival. This annual conference is a one-stop shop for any food or drink FMCG business looking for start, scale or expand. He also runs the FoodHub Forum on Facebook which is the UK’s largest community of independent food and drink brands. Most recently he has been launching a plant-based brand called Planet Jason, based on his experience of being a vegetarian for 4 decades.
