AgrarKontakte International (AKI) e. V. is an independent and registered nonprofit association that was founded in 1998 as a result of the long-standing work of the State Farmers’ Association in Baden-Wurttemberg with different countries. Since then AKI has been developing its international contacts under the honorary management of Hans-Benno Wichert and an executive board. The full-time team works closely with partners in the CEE and CIS countries, as well as in other countries, for example in Africa, South-East Asia and South America.
Its goal is not just to carry out advanced training and expert programs or to hold professional workshops, but also to implement project management for the international agriculture and food sector, to organize delegation trips for farmers and professional workers from the agricultural sector and food industry in Germany as well as in our partner countries. At the same time, these activities should contribute to strengthening and developing the existing network of international contacts.
