David Jones, former deputy chairman of Morrisons, has been knighted for services to business and charity - heading a list of luminary figures in grocery recognised in the New Year Honours list.

Sir David led fashion retailer Next for more than 20 years and co-founded the charity Cure Parkinson's Trust, having battled Parkinson's disease since the age of 39. Jones was also deputy chairman of Morrisons between 2004 and 2006, where he was credited with reshaping the chain's board of directors, although he clashed repeatedly with then-chairman Sir Ken Morrison over the appointment of four non-executive directors.

Former Young's Seafood CEO Wynne Griffiths has been appointed CBE for services to the food industry. He stepped down from the role last February after nine years.

"This honour is testimony to the great contribution Wynne made to establishing Young's both as the UK's number one name in fish and as a major European food business," said Young's MD Jim Cane.

Jonathan Adnams, chairman of brewer Adnams, has also been appointed CBE for services to corporate social responsibility.

Sophi Tranchell, MD of Fairtrade brand Divine Chocolate, has been appointed MBE for services to the food industry. The company turns over £12m and shares its profits with Kuapa Kokoo, the Ghanaian cocoa farmers' co-operative.
