Born and raised in Utrecht he goes all around the country to make sure that everyone can get more taste with Neolea. His main responsibilities are building a strong relationship with current customers and searching for new customers to create a relationship with. Felix is extremely passionate about great food products such as Neolea and loves to inspire others with it.
What do you like the most about working at Neolea?
Being in a small company like Neolea gives me the feeling that everything I do actually has an impact on the entire business. I used to work for large companies (where they also called me Flix) and actually never disliked my job. But something was missing and I think I found that ‘’something’’ in working for Neolea. Besides that, gastronomy is a true passion of mine and it always kept me busy. When Neolea approached me for this job I didn’t have to think twice because I got the opportunity to make a job out of my passion.
Where can we find you when you’re not working?
Difficult question because I like to do a lot of different things. I would say on days off I’m in my lovely hometown Utrecht, having a great glass of wine or beer with friends. I didn’t yet mention that I absolutely love football so I play football on Saturdays and often watch games of my beloved teams Utrecht and Roma in the weekends. Am I ever at home? Oh yes. Me and my girlfriend Julia just moved to a new apartment in the city center of Utrecht and I absolutely love to be there to relax once in a while. Or to cook. Of course.
What is your favorite recipe with Neolea olive oil?
Hard to say because I use tons of Neolea in each and every dish I cook. Having lived in Rome for two years I would say that my Italian cooking is pretty well-developed and so I pick two Italian dishes: a summer and a winter dish. In the summer you should really try my Spaghetti alle Vongole and in the winter you’re invited to try my risotto with truffle, mushrooms, pancetta and of course… Neolea!
