On 29 February 2020, the Swiss breeders of Alpine pig and poultry projects met for the pre-founding meeting of the new PatriMont-Switzerland national group. Fortunately, everything was already discussed in detail there, so that the actual foundation could be carried out from 3 to 14 April - due to Covid-19 - by means of a correspondence vote. On 6 June 2020 the appointed board of directors met for the first meeting. From left to right: Ulrich Egli, Actuary and Deputy Chairman; Dr.agr. Tanja Kutzer, Scientific Adviser; Niklaus Amstutz, Chairman; Arno Senti, Marketing; Silvio Caprez, Treasurer; Deborah Stadelmann, Breeding Manager Poultry and Hape Grunenfelder, Breeding Manager Alpine Pigs.
