The engineer in agricultural economics originally comes from Cameroon. He joined Bio Tropic after graduating from the University of Kassel.

He is supported by his colleague Messan N’ditsi, an agricultural engineer specialising in tropical agriculture.
Kuemkwong Siemefo is well versed in the logistical and political challenges in the African market. He has made many seemingly impossible undertakings possible in the first place on account of his stubbornness, improvisation skills and with the back-up of the team.
„I am right behind organic farming, since I see the benefits directly in the field and those for people too. Besides which, organic farming provides the small farmers in Africa with a regular income over the longer-term.“ he adds.
Kuemkwong Siemefo values the outlook at his place of work and in the organic industry in general, since it attaches great significance to the well-being of man and the environment. “This doesn’t involve only financial profit but a fair distribution of the income throughout the whole value chain.”
In his spare time he burns off his surplus energy by playing football or riding his bicycle.
