Our Team

Thomas Chen LC | CEO Thomas Chen LC | CEO

A serial entrepreneur from Taiwan who transitioned from electrical engineering to garments, and finally settling down in agriculture - specifically in the rice sector. Thomas' first venture in agriculture was in Vietnam in the late 1980s, becoming COO of a listed fertilizer firm before attempting tropical hybrid rice development in the Philippines and elsewhere.

David Chen CY | COO David Chen CY | COO

Carrying the serial entrepreneur gene, David was a fencing coach and a new father. His wife describes him as someone who would 'save the dolphin", but in reality, David believes in meaningful partnerships and inclusivity. David graduated from Murdoch University with a degree in Molecular Biology and obtained a master's degree in Tri-Sector Collaboration at Singapore Management University. He entered the hybrid rice industry in 2008.

Thomas Chen LC | CEO Peng Jingkai | CFO

Could have become the Durian Prince, but he instead entered the finance sector. Jingkai's kampung spirit was awakened when his son raised several soul-searching questions, leading to him resigning from banking and entering the rice business. Jingkai graduated from University College London and has over a decade's experience in commodities with investment banks in London and Singapore.
