Meet Our Team

The Swissveg core team introduces itself. These are the people who work at Swissveg or support Swissveg as members of the honorary board. In addition, there are countless volunteers who support us for instance at events. Many thanks for that!
Renato Pichler

Renato is one of Swissveg's founding members. He has been working full-time for the organisation since 1993. Renato maintains international cooperations and coordinates the V-label internationally. Having accumulated extensive knowledge on all things related to veganism over the years, Renato is an expert on issues of plantbased nutrition and acts as a speaker at various events.
