ForFarmers CEO to Step Down

Yoram Knoop joined ForFarmers in November 2013 and became CEO of ForFarmers in January 2014

ForFarmers announces that Yoram Knoop, CEO and member of the executive board of ForFarmers NV, will step down after the Annual General Meeting of Shareholders on April 14, 2022, the date on which his current term ends.

“After having led this great company for eight years, it is a natural moment for a new phase for myself and the company,” Knoop says. “I am proud of ForFarmers and of what we have achieved with our mission For the Future of Farming, especially for customers, as well as of the constructive cooperation with colleagues.

“During the coming months, I will continue to work on the execution of our management agenda with all my energy and dedication.”

Knoop joined ForFarmers in November 2013 and became the company’s CEO in January 2014.

“Although Yoram is still in position as CEO until April 14, a word of thanks is currently very much in order given his enormous dedication to ForFarmers and its stakeholders,” says Jan van Nieuwenhuizen, chairman of the supervisory board of ForFarmers. “Since he was first appointed, Yoram has further developed the company from an ambitious cooperative to the leading feed company in Europe.

“Under his leadership, ForFarmers made the step into the growth market Poland and more balance was brought to the portfolio by enhancing the position in the poultry sector. In addition, Yoram embedded sustainability in ForFarmers’ strategy.”

The process of finding a new CEO has started, the company says.
