Michelle ZUFFEREY | President

Michelle Zufferey has more than 25 years of experience in supporting farmers organizations and in marketing food products. As a collaborator of CLARO (Fair Trade Import Center), Max Havelaar Foundation, Swissaid and then for 15 years at AGRIDEA, she acquired a deep knowledge and understanding of rural development and the challenges faced by families both in the South and the North. Her academic education in ethnology has allowed her to develop a high sensitivity to social components related to equity and respect for cultures. The political context and the overall constraints imposed on today’s agriculture have worrying consequences for people and the environment. Discussions on food sovereignty are, in her view, an opportunity to think broader and develop deeply innovative strategies.
