The Sustainable Director - Episode Fourteen with Gert Linthout

In this episode, Gert Linthout, co-owner of Ray & Jules, talks about his 10-year journey in the coffee industry as a clean tech business with a goal of mitigating 100s of millions of tonnes of CO2 emissions produced annually in the food roasting industry.

Gert delves into the technology and why it is different from existing, ancient methods of roasting, and breaks through myths of industry-scale roasting. Ray & Jules, the sunny kind of coffee, are bringing something new to the specialty coffee industry, an industry that has continued to thrive over the past couple of decades. This is not the only food roasting industry Ray & Jules are changing!

The sunny kind of coffee addresses a major challenge in the food industry, a challenge to reduce the reliance on fossil fuels. Gert discusses the benefits of this new technology from a quality and efficiency perspective. So if you like coffee, then have a listen and let us know what you think.
