In this episode we speak to Steve Nicholson, Director of Corporate Affairs and Sustainability for Cottonsoft, Sorbent and Solaris Paper in New Zealand and Australia.
Steve has faced many challenges, most recently the demand from consumers and NGOs for evidence of more sustainable practices among large transnational corporations. The task of greater corporate responsibility in this arena (as set for Asia Pulp Paper and its fellow big businesses by the Indonesian government of the day), and the place of certification and CSR among affiliate businesses in developed nations, are issues which Steve has been intimately involved over several years, and he has many tales of battle and triumph to share.
In this episode we explore the success story and journey behind Kiwi baker Jordan Rondel, also known as The Caker.
Jordan Rondel first experienced baking as a young girl while visiting her grandparents in Paris. Years later, a conversation with her father changed her career forever. She is now known in New Zealand as The Caker, owns her own store in Auckland, is the author of four recipe books and has now expanded operations into LA.
