Managing Director

“We believe that by working together and looking at systems differently, models emerge that can solve many social, economic and ecological challenges.”

AMPED facilitates robust, regional and regenerative food systems. 


While seeking to improve the practical day-to-day reality of farmers and farmer collectives, Amped’s vision is to achieve a large-scale shift in the qualitative and economic valuation of food, thereby improving its relationship with the environment, health, the market and education. AMPED is founder of the short food chain company Local2Local, initiator of the Dutch Short Food Chain Collective, and Dutch Living Lab manager and strategy lead in the European agri-project EU4Advice (H2020).
