Growing Consultant

Active in mushroom cultivation since 1984 and on the road worldwide as a consultant. At Cormo responsible for customer advice and product development.

“In the cultivation of mushrooms, we already use many renewable raw materials. Until now, however, it was also necessary to use peat for the production of cover crops. We want to change that. I will use my passion for mushrooms to put our customers on the best path.”
