Greg parsons

Marketing Director - Greg Parsons
Tel: 07800 957448
Email: greg@davisandparsons.co.uk

Greg Parsons has recently joined Jersey UK as Marketing Director and is excited about the prospect of working with the board and producers to raise the awareness of Jersey milk products and improve links between consumers, processors and producers. Greg has worked in the food industry all of his career, with the past 20 years in dairy including senior roles in Dairy Crest, Ashely Chase and Cricketer Farm.

In March 2016 Greg teamed up with Gordon Davis to start Davis & Parsons Ltd, milk wholesalers focused solely of the sale of Channel Island milk. Having worked across all business areas and with a particular passion for marketing, Greg hopes that his brand experience in launching Country Life Organic milk and Cheeky Cow cheese, combined with his 5 years working with the Marks & Spencer team focussing on provenance and collaborative supply chains will enable him to develop a marketing strategy that will raise the awareness of the quality of Jersey milk products, bring the consumer closer to Jersey producers and ultimately drive sales of Jersey milk.
