AS many in the Ag industry may already know, Jonathan Giret is our President/CEO.
For over fifteen years, Jon has been involved in the agri-food industry, both as a consultant and an owner-operator.
This experience has allowed him to create a consulting powerhouse for farmers and small business owners, in which Jon has spent six years sharing his grant application, health and safety and business planning / management knowledge.
Jon holds a Bachelor of Bio-Resource Management and Environmental Management from Guelph University.
Jon was certified as an NCSO in 2015, and he quickly moved to make health and safety a key piece of his consulting business. He has been the primary health and safety trainer at Elite Agri Solutions since 2017.
In addition to his consulting work, Jon works a 250-acre broiler operation in West Elgin. He is a district representative for the Chicken Farmers of Ontario, and currently sits on the board for the Canadian Agricultural Safety Association. His goal for 2023 is to invest in solar panels and heat exchangers, aiming to shift to biomass as the primary heat source for his farm and barns by 2024.
