A family business

Green Bay Harvest, inspired by Jo's commitment to natural food, is owned and operated by two families.  The family connection is between two Kiwi brothers, John and Greg Glass, who work on opposite sides of the globe. We aim to have a honey bee's approach to happy buzzing: organised, community stakeholders, sharing leadership, in tune with nature...

Jo (UK) is a life-long, but refreshingly non-patronizing, example of healthy eating and sustainable, conscious living (although we have observed that she does occasionally succumb to the siren call of good chocolate - organic and fairly traded of course!)

It is Jo's conversations with our customers and suppliers rather than an accountant's spreadsheet that leads Green Bay Harvest towards new and exciting projects and products.

John (NZ) runs the office in scenic Christchurch in the South Island of New Zealand. He spends his time working with hand-picked bee-keepers, organic farmers and kelp divers to ensure the best possible quality food ends up in our products and on your plate.

You could argue he has the best job in the world if you like the pictures he took on a recent journey around the South Island to look at the harvest and meet with growers.

Maria (NZ) is a talented communicator who has worked for household names in the advertising industry in Christchurch and London. She combines her Green Bay Harvest commitments with running a busy family.

In Canada

Over and above the family connection it was when we began to get requests from Canada that we realised that Canada was a place that valued good food that was natural and healthy.

We became members of the Canadian Health Food Association and at the CHFA Trade Show in Vancouver we met our partners Purity Life Health Products.
