FOUNDER & CEO

Sven Altorfer

Our food is our means of life. Nature offers us a variety of ingredients that are good for us, are enjoyable and that grow regeneratively with the right care. My passion for food began with my training as a chef. This was followed by hotel management school and further training in various food areas, biochemistry and food technology. I implement the vision of healthy nutrition with a focus on our intestinal health, with sustainable solutions in our collaboration with agriculture, in production and for food packaging every day with our company Swiss Health & Nutrition and the brand BE THE CHANGE.

FOUNDER & CO-CEO

Barbara Stolba

I like to get to the bottom of the complexity of nature and us humans as part of it. Journalism in research has trained me to research topics comprehensively and to classify facts in a solid manner. As a specialist in corporate organization, I see connections and recognize where we need to take new paths to solve the challenges we face every day. Our food has a major impact on our health and our environment throughout our lives. With our company Swiss Health & Nutrition and the brand BE THE CHANGE, I work on a balanced diet and environment.

“The essence of life lies in the movement that propagates it.”

PROCESS MANAGEMENT & PRODUCTION

Melanie Metzger

I began my professional career as a federal commercial clerk. As a person who loves to be active, both in a sporting and figurative sense, this was just the start of my professional development. Stations led to further training in customs and to becoming a qualified purchasing manager. In addition, I completed training as a qualified classical masseuse. As an aspiring process specialist with a federal professional certificate, I am gradually taking over project management in process management at Swiss Health & Nutrition AG and its BE THE CHANGE brand. I am convinced that life is constantly changing. Structure ensures quality.

MILK DERIVATIVES

Andrea Tobler

As a federally certified farmer (HFP), I have managed our 40-hectare family farm in the Buchen Wolfhalden mountain region for 30 years. Agriculture, working with animals and people in nature, is my expertise. As the former president of the cantonal rural women's association of the canton of Appenzell Ausserrhoden, I can draw on a further wealth of experience with profound achievements for the rural population. I bear operational responsibility for our SWISS WOW COW project, with which we generate valuable raw materials and ingredients for our BE THE CHANGE products in our agricultural network.

"Working with nature is a privilege for me. I am at home among the animals and in the cycle of life."

EDITORIAL & IT

Elijah Diehl

As a journalist, I get to the bottom of things. I like to report on real life and find creative words to convey even complex things in a joyful way. I take changes and challenges in my life in a sporting spirit, and my experience as a federally certified sports teacher has given me a lot to learn. I like to surround myself with diversity, sometimes take unconventional paths, and see the bigger picture. Nevertheless, I pursue the small things that complete the picture. This is how I bring structure and logic into texts, but also into systems. I also implement this thoroughness in the IT area at Swiss Health & Nutrition and its BE THE CHANGE brand.

"Life is a process. Process is also failure - until it isn't anymore. But you have to try, again and again. Never give up. Once you give up, it becomes a habit."

Fulfillment

Denis Strainovic

Where there's a will, there's a way - that's probably how I can describe myself in a nutshell. My curiosity always drives me to find solutions to challenges and to implement them. For this reason, I chose to train as a mechanical engineer EFZ, where I learned the logical and practical aspects. Further training and professional experience in distribution, logistics and sales have expanded my portfolio, and I enjoy working in a team and creating synergies. At Swiss Health & Nutrition AG, I am responsible for fulfillment and, with my Be The Change mindset, I make a practical contribution to our sustainable goals.

“Life offers many opportunities, you have to believe in them and reach for them”

Atelierista

Mike Filipe Altorfer

Having grown up in Brazil with Swiss roots, I like to combine the characteristics of both lifestyles: the care and precision as well as the cheerful and playful courage to tackle new things. In addition to my intensive German training, as an atelierista I process and package orders from our customers from all over the world with great attention to detail.

For me, the people I get to work with every day, the Be The Change family, are the heart of it all.

SPONSORING & Sports MARKETING

Anna Wagner

During my training as a federal commercial clerk with a vocational baccalaureate in a media company, I helped to design marketing projects and work on large events, with the focus always being on working with different people and their expertise. I then completed the federal baccalaureate and am currently studying real estate management part-time. At BE THE CHANGE, I can bring my passion for sport to the collaboration with our athletes and implement projects with them that lead to more sustainability in the food industry.
