Omri van Zyl elected head auditor of WFO

Omri van Zyl, Agri SA’s executive director, was elected president of the World Farmers' Organisation’s (WFO) audit board in Rome,…

Van Zyl, who served on the board, was nominated for this position after the resignation of the previous president.

According to Van Zyl, some of his tasks will include giving input to the organisation’s president on certain issues.

The WFO is an organisation of agricultural producers that aims to strengthen farmers’ positions within value chains, with a particular focus on smallholder farmers.

By advocating on behalf of farmers and representing their interest in international policy forums, WFO helps farmers to better manage extreme price volatility, leverage market opportunities, and gain timely access to market information.
