East End Foods director Dr Jason Wouhra has been awarded an OBE.
Dr Jason Wouhra’s recognition comes in the Queen’s birthday honours list for services to business and international trade.
As director and company secretary at the Birmingham-based family business, which is a Landmark Wholesale member, Wouhra has helped East End grow to become a £200m business.
“I’m incredibly surprised and humbled to receive this honour at such a young age,” said Wouhra. “It really is amazing to be recognised in such a way and I couldn’t be more delighted. Everyone at East End and Landmark is thrilled and I’ve been inundated with people sending their congratulations, which is really touching,” he added.
Outside of wholesale, Wouhra is chairman of the Institute of Directors for the West Midlands, and also chairs the Aston University Development Board, Birmingham’s Child Poverty Commission, and West Midlands Police. He is also a non-executive director of University Hospitals Foundation Trust.
British Musician Ed Sheeran, who performed this weekend at Glastonbury festival, was also honoured in this latest honours list, receiving an MBE for his services to music and charity.
