Axel Anders

Axel Anders, M. A., studied psychology, drama, linguistics and business administration in France and Germany. Already during his university years, he became involved in the organic farming movement and came into contact with the organic pioneer Adolf Hoops back in the early 1980s. Although his professional journey took him in a different direction in language teaching, international business and publishing, his interest in organic farming remained alive. In 2016, when recognizing the need for a consistently vegan form of organic agriculture he connected German stakeholders in veganic farming with the Biocyclic Network in Greece/Cyprus, thereby initiating the development of “Biocyclic Vegan Agriculture”. 
Currently Axel Anders lives and works in Berlin. As a co-founder and partner of the Berlin-based Adolf Hoops Society, the international standard and label organization for biocyclic vegan agriculture and coordinating body for the International Biocyclic Vegan Network, he is primarily involved in the international development of the biocyclic vegan activities. Axel Anders is also a board member of the German Association Förderkreis Biozyklisch-Veganer Anbau.
