Agroecology Conference in Kenya

Our communications manager Ina Hiester held a presentation about "The Importance of Digital Transformation"

From 18th - 20th of June, the 1st International Conference on Agroecology Transforming Agriculture & Food Sytems in Africa took place in Nairobi/ Kenya.
Our communications manager Ina Hiester attended the conference and held a presentation about "The Importance of Digital Transformation for a Sustainable Economic Development of the Organic Sector", during which she referred to our tools Ecert Basic, Group Integrity, and Check Organic. There are not many local players shaping the organic certification landscape in Africa, and most big exporting companies opt rather for a certification body from the country of their target market, such as Germany.
We would like to encourage local and small certifiers in all of Africa to consider the use of tools like Ecert Basic to bring their audit and certification services to an internationally competitive level. Find the full paper, on which our conference presentation was based, here.
