Deon van Wyk
Bioskets | Biography
Deon van Wyk has ten years of buying experience at the well-known London department store Selfridges & Co to thank for his valuable food knowledge. Deon’s speciality is fresh produce buying – from bread to caviar – and food trends. Deon moved back to South Africa and met with Melissa van Hoogstraten in 2009, and she quickly realised the time was right for someone of Deon’s capacity and knowledge to join the team at Melissa’s The Food Shop. Now the chain’s senior buyer, Deon believes in local talent and produce and – most importantly – shares Melissa’s philosophy of using kitchen cupboard ingredients and initiative to create something special.
