Founder of Bread & Jam
Jason is an experienced food entrepreneur, investor and community builder with a colourful career path – he has produced Emmy nominated TV shows, written highly acclaimed books, published numerous academic papers in biochemistry and crafted award-winning olive oil. 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 co-founded Bread & Jam, the UK’s first food founders’ festival. This annual conference, which attracts over 1000 attendees, is a one-stop shop for any food or drink FMCG business looking for start, scale or expand. He also created the FoodHub Forum on Facebook, which is a lively community of over 12,000 food and drink entrepreneurs. His passion is in sustainability, and he has recently invested in a number of businesses that are focused on encouraging plant based eating and tackling the climate crisis.
