RALF ROESSNER is a passionate bee keeper and a biodynamic farmer, cultivating and processing the 'light root' (Dioscorea batatas), which his company IMTON GmbH develops and markets. In addition, Ralph has been working in the field of water research for 20 years. As an ex-Waldorf school teacher he is interested in all new developments in education, and as a father of two grown up children he aims to be in touch with the pulse of the times. All the above informs his quest for healthy nutrition for the future through meditative as well as experimental research into subtle matter.
