At the recent General Assembly of Demeter International, Heliopolis University Chairman of the Board of Trustees Helmy Abouleish had been elected as the new president. 21 years after its foundation, the pioneers Thomas Lüthi and Susanna Küffer stepped back from their functions. Thomas Lüthi was given the title of honorary president for his merits and Susanna Küffer received the title of Honorary Board member.
“The new president Helmy Abouleish represents perfectly the next step in the organizational development of Demeter International”, the Demeter International board stated. The organization commits itself in supporting the holistic vision of the Biodynamic movement worldwide. From an association of certifiers and protectors of the Demeter and Biodynamic trademarks, Demeter International has developed towards an organization taking responsibility for supporting the Section of Agriculture in research, training and advisory activities and for developing the Demeter markets around the world. Demeter International: “The SEKEM Initiative is one example how this vision can become a reality towards supporting an agriculture of the future.”
