Manufacturing/Production, Nutrition, Product Development & Ingredient Innovations
Are you an American citizen or green card holder and an expert in food safety and quality, dairy nutrition, horticultural production, post-harvest handling, agricultural value chain analysis or another agribusiness or agricultural field? We could use your expertise on our new programming catered towards remote volunteering!
As many companies and organizations around the world are having to acclimate to the new work environment and an inability to travel, the Farmer-to-Farmer team at Land O’Lakes Venture37 has been working on ways to adapt our program to the times. After some coordination between HQ, our teams in Bangladesh, Egypt and Lebanon and the hosts we work with each respective country, we have had the chance to share out new assignments with a different focus: remote volunteering. With the continuation of work from home coupled with a lull in workloads, we thought this would be a great time to integrate this revised programming for interested volunteers. We are also temporarily pivoting our approach towards more ‘remote-friendly’ topics that continue to assist our host’s needs in-country while also accommodating the availability of volunteers to assist in remote volunteering.
We continue to focus our efforts on food safety and quality (FSQ) issues, but have expanded our efforts to include assignments that go beyond our usual scope, such as international market research, social media management and home gardening. Tasks include virtual meetings with our teams and hosts in-country, creation of manuals/business plans/recommendations for future progress, and flexible availability/time commitment to the remote assignments.
Interested in learning more about available scopes of work or getting involved in remote volunteering? Please email our Volunteer Coordinator, Maggie Yarosh, at firstname.lastname@example.org for all inquiries and information about available scopes of work. Though our ability to send volunteers on in-country assignments has temporarily been put on hold, we want to continue to emphasize the importance of our work through the opportunity of remote volunteering!
