Dr. Johannes Eisenbach

Dr. agr. Johannes Eisenbach, originally from Germany, is a trained farmer and agricultural economist. Involved in the organic movement since the early 1980s, he relocated to Greece in 1995 where he played a major role in the development of organic agriculture. In addition to providing training and consultancy for conversion farms, he has built up an extensive distribution network to give producers from Greece and Cyprus, mostly small-scale family farms, access to the international export markets. In collaboration with the German organic pioneer Adolf Hoops and his son Arne, he developed the Biocyclic Standard, which later expanded to become the Biocyclic Vegan Standard.
Together with Arne Hoops and Axel Anders, Johannes Eisenbach is 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 the chairman of the Biocyclic Vegan Standard Committee and of the German Association Förderkreis Biozyklisch-Veganer Anbau. He also coordinates the Panhellenic Biocyclic Vegan Network in Greece and Cyprus and is the director of the Cyprus-based marketing platform O.M.E.N. Organic Marketing & Export Network Ltd. In 2020 he became a member of the Scientific / Editorial Committee of the Growers’ Forum at IFOAM AgriBioMediterraneo (ABM).
