Wouter-Jan Schouten
 

Our seasoned senior advisor Wouter-Jan has over 20 years of experience in management consulting at The Boston Consulting Group. He has worked with many of Europe’s leading companies in the consumer products, agro and food industries across Europe, Asia and Africa. He also supported the top team of the Dutch Agro-Food sector in setting the pre-competitive sector agenda in 2011. Wouter-Jan holds an MSc in Business Administration from the Erasmus University in Rotterdam.

Combining his network and expertise with NewForesight thinking has already proved to be a winning combination. This is exemplified in the  “New Horizons for the Transitioning of our Food System” report which has been initiated by Wouter-Jan and jointly prepared by teams from NewForesight, Commonland, and The Boston Consulting Group. The report argues that the pressing challenges facing our food system can be translated into opportunities if we change our prevailing logic and adopt a holistic approach towards the food transition . The report gives us a clear mandate to engage (new) clients in our work.

Besides his role as a Senior Advisor at NewForesight, Wouter-Jan is also the theme director for Food Chain Sustainability and Dynamics at the Top Institute Food and Nutrition (TiFN).

Contact Wouter-Jan if you would like to know more about the report From Challenge to Opportunity, and how it could help you contribute to the global food transition.
