Wouter Verelst

Satemwa Tea & Coffee Estates
Sales & Marketing
WOUTER VERELST lived and worked with his family in Malawi for 7 years. About 5 years ago he returned back to Belgium to set up the Satemwa Europe direct trade office close to Antwerp. 
Wouter keeps close relations with different international tea education programs to educate tea professionals about quality tea and herbals from Malawi & Africa.  Wouter works with existing and future direct trade partners to set up new and maintain existing tailormade tea projects.  Part of that also involves a lot of logistics to make the Satemwa teas & herbals easily accessible and available through our fresh stock in Europe. 
When he is not sitting behind his little desk in Antwerp, or shuffling around in the Satemwa warehouse close to Antwerp port he is promoting Satemwa & African teas during international trade shows and fairs around the world. Or he is in Malawi guiding another Malawi Tea Education tour. 
Wouter has a background in sales & marketing with some multinational FMCG companies. He has a master in International Relations from the University of Antwerp (Dutch) and a Master in Economics from the University of Louvain La Neuve (French) in Belgium.
