Chemelco Food Tech South Africa with head office in the Netherlands promotes, markets and distributes specialty ingredients for the food processing industries. We focus on bringing innovative, clean-label solutions and as such improve health and environment.

For our newly set-up Wine & Beer ingredients division we are looking for an enthousiastic Sales Manager / (ex) Winemaker, fully motivated to conquer and surprise about 2500 wineries and 350 beer brewing companies, large and small.

WHAT DOES THE JOB INCLUDE: Introducing and selling our innovative specialty ingredients for wine-making and beer brewing. The best way to sell our ingredients is by someone who fully understands the process of producing these popular drinks and who is eager to contribute to making them even better. We also attend relevant fairs and organize our own workshops. 

WHAT WE LOOK FOR: A fresh and dynamic, intelligent representable person, "no-nonsense" (since we are a Dutch Company), willing to work, no 9-5 mentality, relevant qualification in Oenology & Viticulture, at least several years of experience as a winemaker (in the cellar). Sales/commercial skills are important and of course "knowing the industry". Working autonomous and self-motivated. No iPhone addict. Since our ingredients for the wine industry are relatively new in South Africa it requires lots of endurance and perseverance.

WHAT WE OFFER: To become a member of an international team with tons of knowledge yet running your own division eventually. A good (salary) package with all relevant perks, to be negotiated according to your level of skills and experience. Our offices are based on a Franschhoek (wine-)farm. 

If you feel you are the right candidate and would like to join our team, please send your resumé and motivation letter to
