Board of Directors

Jonathan Harvey, a British national, has 7 years of experience working with agricultural commodities, primarily coffee. The majority of that time was spent with Volcafe Ltd, the coffee division of ED&F Man Ltd, and the world’s largest supplier of sustainable green bean coffee.

Jonathan’s experience ranges from farm, mill, and logistics management, through to green coffee trading, and investment analysis across the value chain. He has lived and worked in Costa Rica, Myanmar, Singapore, China and the Philippines.

In addition, Jonathan is a partner in a proposed 2,500 hectare Robusta coffee plantation project in the Philippines. This project, which is in the final stages before submission to international lenders, aims to incorporate a transformational cooperative-corporate model to ensure benefits from high yielding, mechanised farming are enjoyed at every stage in the value chain.

Jonathan has a BSc in Geography with Economics from the London School of Economics.
