IT & Sustainability
Since when do you work for DO-IT?
Since September 1999
What is DO-IT according to you?
DO-IT is the necessary link between organic agriculture in the world and the producers plus consumers of organic food.
Why did you choose for an organic company?
Between 1978 - 1984 I worked at companies which can be regarded as the precursors of het current organic companies. In 1999, after 15 years in Information Technology, I got an opportunity to return to the organic movement.
Why is organic important to you?
Organic food is an important part of the sustainability of our uninhibited consumption-oriented economy.
Does organic play a role in your daily life?
It would be hard to find any non-organic food in our house. And our preference for organic is growing more and more important in other areas, such as clothing
Are you single or married, do you have children?
I have lived with my wife Joke for 40 years. We have one daughter who is 34.
Where do you live?
I live in Amersfoort and our house is a part of military barracks. We have 2 organic shops and an organic butcher within 400 M of our house. We live within walking distance of the train station, the coly town centre and the beautiful nature surrounding Amersfoort.
What are your hobbies?
TMy wife puts a lot of energy into her allotment garden and my contribution is the chairmanship of the allotment club. We go to the cinema at least once every fortnight and I regularly attend chamber music concerts.
What is your favourite DO-IT - la BIO IDEA - Amaizin product?
My favourite product is la BIO IDEA spaghetti of Angelo Barbagallo. Currentlyb this is competing with la BIO IDEA tinned beans which I often use in various dishes with Amaizin coconut milk
