OUR BRAND VALUES*

Oxford Wholefoods, a not-for-profit venture employing 40 disabled people and eight supervisors, began life at the Slade Hospital in Headington, after senior occupational therapist Arthur Harrison visited an Oxford health food shop. He saw someone shovelling lentils into a bag and realised it was an occupation that could help people with learning difficulties enter the world of work. The project started in the hospital kitchen, with just three trainees. It moved to the Osney Mead industrial estate in West Oxford in 1995 and now has an annual turnover of £491,000. The company specialises in packing and distributing staple foods including beans, pulses, dried fruit, nuts, rice and breakfast cereals. It supplies more than 100 shops belonging to its major customer, Oxford-based Midcounties Co-operative, the UK’s second largest Co-op, with which it has worked from the start. Since its foundation Oxford Wholefoods has helped more than 80 people with work-based training, providing a focus and routine which helps their personal development and confidence.
