It all comes down to agriculture!
Inspired by his grandfather’s potato and pig farm and equipped with a strong work ethic and structured education, Mark chose to pursue the agricultural route following his school years.
Mark’s further education at Harper Adam’s University College opened multiple doors to his future and the Jupiter brand. He met Yvonne, a beef farmers daughter and now integral part of the business and went to work for PDM Produce where he met his business partner Phillip Maddocks.
A few years down the line with a bundle of experience under his belt Mark started the Jupiter story. And so it began…
