Gloria Jean’s Coffees is one of the most loved and respected coffee company worldwide with the aim of serving customers with the highest quality speciality coffee every time. The brand offers a variety of cold and hot coffees, chillers, quick bites, and muffins and pastries. In keeping with the pace, Rohit shares, “At Gloria Jean’s, we take our coffee very seriously, so not only does it taste great, but we also make sure we buy from suppliers that look after both their workers and the environment. Our coffee beans are sourced from all over the world and from many different farms of all types and sizes – large plantations, co-operative groups and tiny family farms. This means that there is no one size fits all approach to buying responsibly, but we are focused on promoting sustainable farming and a better outcome for all”.

Prior to this role, Rohit was the Business Head of Barcelos and was overseeing their operations (supply chains, team building, and business development) in the country. He also handled finance and risk management and was in charge of Barcelos’ expansion plans and retail space across the country.
