Foodstuffs Division

The Foodstuffs Division is responsible for planning and ensuring the nationwide supply of essential foodstuffs during an extreme
shortage. It is headed by Christian Hofer.

There are four sections in the division:

-       Abteilung Pflanzenbau (APB)
-       Abteilung Milch (AMI)
-       Abteilung Fleisch (AFL)
-       Abteilung Warenbeschaffung und –verteilung (AWV)

The experts’ task is to contribute knowledge, experience and contacts from their field of expertise. They analyse the supply situation, develop and update management plans and, if necessary, can request measures to be applied, which they also take part in implementing.
