Peter Saunders
Entrepreneur, business angel and philanthropist


Entrepreneur, Philanthropist, Innovator - Peter Saunders OBE truly is the quintessence of the DO’er spirit.  His handwork, passion and talent saw him build Halo Foods from humble foundations in rural Wales into one of the UK’s premier food groups boasting a global reputation. But it gets better. He then founded Severn Aviation, a specialist flying school that was soon training pilots for the Metropolitan Police and the North Sea Oil & Gas industry, and it was quickly recognised as Europe's finest training facility. Now his mission is to revolutionise healthcare technology with Sure Chill—revolutionary technology that seeks to improve the longevity of vaccinations though powerless refrigeration. And could save millions of lives.

Peter Saunders, OBE built Halo Foods in rural Wales into an award-winning group that become one of the success stories of Wales. His Sure Chill company has developed in rural Wales a technology with the potential to disrupt global markets. And in 2012, Peter was named UK Business Angel of the Year.
