AG Foods is definitely a project of my life. If someone in the past said to me ‘you will become the owner of the company – I wouldn’t believe it’, and yet that’s what happened. I became the co-owner of AG Foods. Working with Avallon was 7 years of real hard work. But, as someone asks, it paid off! I was a manager, I am its co-owner
