Dan is the founder and inspiration behind Kokonut Pacific.
He was raised on a farm in Kenya and following National Service as a pilot studied Economics at Rhodes University in South Africa (where he met his wife, Maureen), and Agricultural Economics at Cornell and Stanford Universities in the USA. He taught at the University of Nairobi until 1972 when he moved to the Australian National University (ANU) in Canberra. At the ANU his studies of the coconut industries in Asia, Africa & the South Pacific convinced him of the need for a village-based technology to produce coconut oil as value-added alternative to exporting crude copra.
In 1994 he founded Kokonut Pacific as a social enterprise and retired from the ANU in 1997 to commercialise the Direct Micro Expelling (DME) technology he had invented.
Direct Micro Expelling (DME) technology was awarded a Medal by EXPO2000 in Germany as a sustainable “World Project.”
In 2006 Kokonut Pacific’s work in the Solomon Islands was awarded the Ryutaro Hashimoto Gold Award by the Asia Pacific Forum for Environment and Development (APFED) for its work in ‘Rehabilitating a rural economy with virgin coconut oil production.’
In 2008, Dan was awarded Membership of the Order of Australia for his innovations in small-scale coconut processing and contributions to sustainable agriculture and economic development in the South Pacific.
“Dr. Dan” is a respected authority on coconuts and remains passionate about the potential of the “tree of life.” He and Maureen have three children, nine grandchildren and are active in their local church.
