Gerald A. Herrmann

Gerald A. Herrmann is a pioneer in the organic sector. He is a world-wide renowned specialist and organic industry expert and speaker. After gaining his university degree in agriculture in 1985, he spent almost two decades shaping Naturland, a private organic certifying and farmers’ association, as an organic farm consultant, President and finally as its Executive Director. At the same time, he served voluntarily in different capacities at the International Federation of Organic Agriculture Movements (“IFOAM”) for nearly two decades, including as its Vice President (1989-2005) and President (2005-2008). During his time at IFOAM, Gerald was also a member of the Accreditation Board, on which he worked to develop IFOAM’s Accreditation Programme. This position, as well as other opportunities, have provided Gerald with the experience necessary to become an expert in the development of certification programs, supply chain traceability and integrity systems as well as of organic markets worldwide. As a result of being in these high-profile positions, Gerald has developed an extensive global network of contacts.
