Agricultural Development Manager – Beef & Lamb
Will Jackson is the agricultural development manager for beef and lamb for the Co-operative Food group. His role involves spending time ensuring that the link between the farm and when the animals are slaughtered is upheld. This means regular contact with the 60 beef and 20 sheep farmers in the Co-Operative farming groups, and also with the processors who supply products into The Co-operative.
Will has a dairy farming background and studied business and management at the university of Northumbria. Will grew up on his family’s dairy farm in Derbyshire, where they milked about 140 cows. Before joining Co-operative Food Will worked at Arla Foods.
