CeresAward 2020: Our Partner Batati wins the Business Idea of the Year

We are very happy and proud that our partners Simon van der Veer and Christian Hurni have won the CeresAward 2020 in the category Business Idea with their sweet potato project "Batati".

The award was presented by the German trade magazine Agrarheute, which annually honors exceptional agricultural projects in Germany, Austria and Switzerland with the prestigious Ceres Award.

Since 2019, Batati has been working very closely with Root & Branch (previously with our predecessor organization In-Limbo) in the production of their domestic sweet potato by engaging refugees with a right to work in Switzerland.Our energetic GreenTeam supports Batati between May and November with 5 to 20 people in planting the seedlings by machine while weeding and harvesting by hand.
