Ben & Jerry’s, Marks & Spencer

Chris worked as part of Ben & Jerry’s European Social Mission team to develop a range of campaigns related to social and environmental justice for implementation across Ben & Jerry’s European markets.  Chris also managed a number of projects relating to the company’s Values Led Sourcing policy. The first of which aimed to increase Ben & Jerry’s relationship with their smallholder producers by funding projects which provide capacity development to farmers. Chris managed an initial pilot in Uganda which targeted the development of a new training centre for Ben & Jerry’s vanilla farmers.  As part of a new product launch linked to Ben & Jerry’s collaboration with the Bob Marley foundation, 1Love, Chris also managed the establishment of a youth empowerment project in Jamaica.  The project will provide training and facilitation workshops to organisations working with disadvantaged young people in a number of Jamaican communities.
