Producers, companies and consumers show increasing commitment to more sustainable and responsible production and processing. Yet being transparent over this commitment is not an easy task, especially when a supply chain is spread over several countries with different social-political contexts, levels of development and interests. Different monitoring and traceability systems have been developed but do not generate satisfactory results.
I have been working in supply chain development and chain informatization and I am a firm believer that more creative forms of chain collaboration are possible and required. Agriplace enables these by offering chain stakeholders an agile and inclusive platform for innovation.
Educational background: International Business Studies (Bachelor & Master), International Development Studies (Master), Compliance Design and Management (Master), Certified ScrumMaster (CSM) and Certified Internal Auditor (CIA).
Relevant work experience: I have worked mainly in the role of advisor and project manager predominantly focusing on value chain development and all aspects of chain informatization (e.g. IT, assurance, compliance-by-design, cybersecurity). I fulfilled these roles for organizations like Thauris, Ernst & Young, Ahold, ILO Cambodia, ICCO Honduras, Cordaid and the Netherlands Food and Consumer Safety Authority.
