Co-Founder, Global Sustainability
When it comes to merchandising, product development and category management for non-GMO, organic and ethically sourced products, Errol leads the way for the BeyondBrands team. It’s no wonder as Errol has almost 25 years experience in the food world. As Whole Food’s former Vice President of Grocery, he led the merchandising and purchasing for the largest company division for over 7 years, doubling sales to $5 billion (yes, that’s billion), on top of a 300BP margin gain. Errol was also an architect of the 2018 GMO Labeling Policy and Supermarket News has selected him as one of their Top 25 Retail Game Changers. In his spare, time Errol love to read. He is also an avid gardener and permaculture practitioner of 20 years who enjoys spending as much time as he can with his kids and midwife wife.
