Emilie Dardaine is a french “Ingenieur in Agriculture” which is equivalent to a MSc. of a foreign university in agribusiness and agricultural science. She has worked in the tropical agri-food business in different continents (UK, Germany, the Dominican Republic, Costa Rica) and from many angles: project management at farmer level in Southern Countries, quality supply management by an English fruit importer, social- and environmental certification, and most recently research in the sustainability of supply chains. She has extensive experience working with farm co-operatives and small agri-businesses in Latin America. She joined CIMS in 2012 after acting as advisor to Cooperativas Sin Fronteras, an alliance of 15 producer organisations focused on creating markets for fair trade and organic produce. Before that she was a manager at Fairtrade International where she has led product development projects involving all stakeholders and developed business strategies to improve livelihoods for rural agricultural communities producing fruit, sugar, coffee and cocoa, amongst others. Her experience has necessitated a clear understanding of business, community consultation and strategy development. She carried out her thesis on export opportunities for a cocoa produced by indigenous communities in the Amazonian forest of Venezuela. Emilie is based in Costa Rica and is a fluent Spanish and English speaker.
