A business with passion and people who really care.

It's not just what we do, but how we do it, that has made us who we are today.

Our brands are only as good as the people behind them.

The passion and care that we have for our business means that how we work is incredibly important to us.  Whether we are developing products to delight our consumers or working hard to supply our customers, how we do things is just as important to us as what we do. We’re a friendly bunch who support each other to do the very best we can and make JDR a great place to work.

Realising our ambitions brings challenges, every day is different and varied, and that’s the way we like it; we roll our sleeves up and use our collective talents as a team to find solutions  to tackle those challenges.

We know that our people are what make the difference in our business and we care about giving our hardworking and ambitious people the support and tools to fulfil their potential and drive their development.

Our aim is to create an inclusive environment that supports business performance and where our people use Great Judgement, are Action Orientated and have a clear Focus on People.

We have strong values that shape great results


At Jordans Dorset Ryvita, our culture has resulted in more than just an honest and respectful workplace.
