Since founding Foodways in 2012, Markus has developed an extensive network of partners and clients from business, science and institutional actors and established Foodways as an innovative and effective service company. He is an experienced project manager with a focus on participatory approaches, networking, the conception of sustainability strategies and the management and implementation of long-term sustainability projects. He combines his holistic, entrepreneurial way of thinking with his expert knowledge of sustainability issues in the food sector.
