Carbon Gold has hired Alfie Jackson as commercial manager to increase Carbon Gold’s presence in the commercial horticulture industry.
Having previously worked in both buying and growing roles at companies including Suttons Consumer Products and Modiform UK, Alfie offers valuable sector insight that will support Carbon Gold’s drive to promote its products to the commercial grower market in the UK and Europe.
His main task will be to introduce conventional growers to the benefits of Carbon Gold’s enriched biochar product, Biology Blend, and its biochar-based soil and substrate improvers.
Alfie says, ‘Carbon Gold is a fast-growing company selling an organic product that can give growers and propagators a real competitive edge. The trials that have been completed so far have delivered significant results with some growers experiencing yield increases of 10-15%, so it’s a really exciting time to be involved.
‘I’m looking forward to fast-tracking biochar’s breakthrough and widespread adoption by growers to help them increase the health and yield of their plants.’
Simon Manley, CEO of Carbon Gold, commented, ‘We’re delighted to have Alfie as part of our team. His experience as both a buyer and a grower gives him a unique perspective on the market, and ensures he is really able to identify with the challenges facing commercial growers, and demonstrate how organic best-practice in conventional growing systems can help.’
