With over ten years of experience, I deal with all aspects related to (international) sustainable agricultural supply chains.

About

Growing up abroad - Mozambique, Ha├»ti, India - didn't only give me an adventurous and fun childhood it also clearly set the tone for my career path. Check out my LinkedIn for a detailed resume. 

I started activities under Alonzi in 2016 when I felt confident enough with my network and my skills to start up as a freelance consultant. 

The business knowledge and additional network obtained from my second Masters, an Executive MBA (2017-2018) at the Rotterdam School of Management, part of the Erasmus University, has been very complementary to my agricultural and field level knowledge and experience, clearly allowing me to provide more value to my clients in my work.   

Services

I focus on all aspects related to building and enhancing sustainable international trade of agricultural commodities and related products, building on my field level experience and my diverse and extensive network both in origin as in Europe.
