A very big welcome to our newest team members, certification officers Yoon Kok and Darran Gould.
Yoon joins us with qualifications in food technology from the University of Queensland. After graduating she worked in Malaysia in corporate sustainability for a large conglomerate before returning to Australia earlier this year.
She’s looking forward to embracing the diverse roles carried out by certification officers at Australian Certified Organic and Yoon’s background in food technology will certainly be helpful for organic food manufacturers.
Darran has been a microbiologist, English teacher and structural drafter!
He has a bachelor of applied science and worked in microbiology labs before moving to Japan to teach English for six years. Afterwards he worked with the Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry as a sugar industry researcher. Looking to expand his skill set he went back to school to study marine structural drafting.
Darran says his interest has always been in agriculture and he’s particularly excited to have the opportunity to work across all agricultural sectors in the growing organic industry.
