About AKI

AgrarKontakte International (AKI) e. V. is an independent and registered nonprofit association which 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 is managed by managing director Dr Monika Erath works closely with partners in the CEE and CIS countries, as well as in other countries, for example in South-East Asia and South America.

Our goal is not just to carry out advanced training and expert programs or to hold professional workshops, but also to organize delegation trips for farmers and professional workers from the agricultural sector and food industry here in Germany as well as in our partner countries. At the same time, these activities should contribute to strengthening and to developing the existing network of international contacts.
