Wilfred van der Kooij, Novos Horizontes

At the Seas of Change workshop in 2014 we discussed the value of doing inclusive business with Wilfred van der Kooij of Novos Horizontes, a poultry company in Mozambique.

“When it comes to employees or our farmers, we put them at the center. So for us, it is not like we’re an existing business that’s trying to explore new ways of doing more inclusive business. Actually, the whole company was built around the idea that the farmer has to be at the center of our production. When you look at Mozambique,
I mean, you see lots of unused resources. And to me, the biggest unused resource is actually the people.”
