“Don’t mix business with pleasure.”

It’s a saying that Jacky and Ken, the husband and wife team leading Charlie’s Fine Food Co. have well and truly proven wrong.

Working together for the last 16 years they have discovered that by combining their diverse skills, they form a dynamic team. Ken heads up Operations and Finance with Jacky leading the charge across Sales and Marketing.

While neither would have guessed this is where they would end up, looking back it makes sense.

Growing up Ken secretly wanted to be a chef, while Jacky was raised in a family that made things! After both starting their careers in the corporate world they shared a desire to build a business that does more than just make money, but is a positive force for good in the world.

For Jacky and Ken, that means creating a team environment made up of a diverse workforce where people feel safe and cared for.

It means supporting women in the workplace and removing obstacles in their way.

It means becoming leaders in the food industry — generously sharing knowledge and resources so that other businesses can reap the benefits.

It also means supporting local businesses and continuing to find more sustainable manufacturing processes.
