Sherrill will help develop strategic partnerships with leading food brands and organizations to implement better farming practices and drive positive sustainability outcomes across commercial supply networks.

After transitioning out of a leadership position at CropTrak, an enterprise software company, Sherrill has been consulting to build regenerative value chains together with regional meat processing infrastructure development. Based in central Indiana, he brings experience to his new role of working with global food and beverage companies to digitize, monitor and optimize their supply chains, as well as experience of building regional food supply chains from the ground up.

“Jonathan Sherrill is a transformational change agent, and we’re excited to welcome him to our growing team. He brings with him deep US industry experience, leading subject matter expertise and raw passion for building value chains that deliver positive impact for people, animals, planet and profit," said Øistein Thorsen, chief executive of FAI Farms.
