Staying on track
How we're governed
IGD is a research and training charity which sits at the heart of the food and grocery industry. It has a trading subsidiary that provides commercial services. The profits from these commercial services fund the charity. Our Trustees are some of the industry’s most experienced people and have a blend of skills and experience. Trustees exercise oversight and scrutiny in relation to IGD’s charitable activities, including monitoring progress against the targets which the Trustees set and ensuring IGD’s charitable activities sit within its constitution. The Trustees also ensure that IGD’s trading is sustainable and agree the annual Budget.
Our senior leadership team comprises our CEO and her direct reports. They are responsible for the day to day management of IGD and carrying out the activities agreed with the Trustees.
Susan Barratt, CEO
