Jason Tanner

I started working in 1986 as a stock controller at Emmets at Windsor where I got my passion  for the Fresh Produce Industry. Then in 1988 I moved to Louis Reece in New Covent Garden Market as a cashier, I was then quickly promoted to a Junior Salesman. After a couple of years I was asked to open and manage a Fruit Department for Louis Reece on the Growers Pavilion in New Covent Garden which quickly become a  successful business. Then came the opportunity to join Gilgroves Fruit Department working alongside Roger Garber which between us we turned the department around to make it a Major Fruit Wholesaler in New Covent Garden.

Roger and I both left Gilgrove in 1999 and joined Premier Fruit Western International as a joint venture and opened the company in New Covent Garden. After two years we split the company and independent from Premier Western International we opened up Premier Fruits Covent Garden Limited.

I am also active in contributing to the success of New Covent Garden Market through my role as Deputy Chairman on CGTA and we all look forward to the completion of the New Market.

Today we are the UK leading independent wholesaler and since our inception we have added Premier Fruit Catering, Premier Fruits Prepared and Premier Fruits Direct.

Going forward our aim is for the continued success and development of Premier Fruits as a major player in the UK Fresh Produce Industry.

I first got the taste of the Fresh Produce Industry delivering with my father fresh produce from Emmetts of Windsor to New Covent Garden back in 1985.

I then worked for Emmett’s when I turned 16 in 1991 on and off from college whilst studying business and financial management.  I eventually joined permanently as a Transport Planner under Colin Evans in 1995.

I passed my HGV class 1 in 1996 and then moved to Perishables Transport Company doing specialist produce customs clearance, transport ,warehousing and distribution.  After a while they asked me to manage the Pack house specialising in packing for the likes of Marks & Spencer.

In 1999 Premier Fruits was created and I joined as a cashier and now manage the Fruit department as well as being a Director. Going forward there is still opportunities to grow this business further and make Premier Fruits a major player in the Fresh Produce Industry for years to come.

My New Covent Garden employment history is quite simply Premier Fruits. Starting as a Warehouse man I soon realised I wanted to progress to sales, through continued hard work and enthusiasm and I made my ambitions known which the company had already recognised and as soon as the opportunity arose I was offered a position as a Salesmen and not looked back since.

I was a late starter to the Produce industry not starting until I was 36! Although the Produce industry was in my blood as my Father was an importer long before I was born.

Up until I joined Premier Fruits I was a Professional Golfer, plying my trade around the world last port of call was Abu Dhabi and Bahrain.

I have now got the Produce bug and enjoy life working on the Fruit Department.
