Over the past 20 years, James Yau has worked in management consultancy in North America and Asia. In early 2009, he pursued a new venture by establishing and operating 10 different farms within Asia Pacific. In 2013, he founded a retail chain www.farmdirect.hk to sell safe, high-quality food products in Hong Kong. In early 2014, his company www.jycoholding.com began development of precision farming and Big Data for Agriculture, which created an algorithm for managing risks on trading perishable agri-products. Having consulted and worked on 100+ farms in 20 countries, he continued to invest further into the agri-industry. In mid 2016, he entered the Hong Kong and South China region, with his partners now trading over 65 million kilos annually in fruits and vegetables.
