If you feel that 2017 is the year to become your own boss, then a franchise within the food industry could be for you. Investing in a franchise offers a safe and rewarding way to take control of your work/life balance.

With more and more people concerned about the provenance of their food, the organic market (now worth nearly £2 billion) is on the up. In the last year, organic sales have grown by 4.9%. Riverford’s sales have shown an increase of 8% on the prior year.

Riverford organic farmers was founded in 1987 by farmer Guy Watson and has come a long way since its humble beginnings. It’s now one of the UK’s largest veg box delivery schemes, growing, packing and distributing over 47,000 veg boxes a week to homes and businesses around the UK via their network of franchisees.

The Riverford model is simple: Riverford grow, source and pack the boxes and their franchisees ensure those deliveries reach customers’ homes safely. Working together, they promote the brand, engage with existing customers and encourage new customers to shop with Riverford.

Riverford are looking for like-minded people to get involved. A passion for good, ethically produced food is essential, along with basic business skills, the ability to build and maintain strong customer relationships and the drive and motivation to succeed.

As Riverford are an established brand with a proven, successful business model, franchises provide a secure and steady income from the outset.

Riverford currently have a number of resale territories, ranging in size, available across England and South Wales. Their largest franchises turn over £1 million per year yet there’s still plenty of room for further growth.

They are constantly striving to make life easier for both their franchisees and customers, from changing the way they pack their boxes to adding new products, like 100% organic recipe boxes, and providing inspiration and tips for cooking with their fresh and tasty produce, with their new Riverford recipe channel on YouTube.
