Mr. Patrick Maselis is a renowned Belgian industrialist and philatelist. He is the managing director and owner of De Groep Maselis, a major European producer of foods and ingredients based on cereals. The company consists of three divisions: SA Maselis for the production of ingredients for the food industry; Poco Loco, a manufacturer of Mexican food (wraps, tortillas and chips); and Mulder Natural Food, a producer of breakfast cereals. Besides his role at De Groep Maselis, Patrick is the president of the Club de Monte-Carlo de l’Elite de la Philatélie and a fellow of the Royal Philatelic Society de Londres.
How I relate to the BJF
As the Maselis companies fully depend on natural ingredients, such as corn for Poco Loco, Patrick Maselis understands the value of preserving the richness of natural ecosystems such as the Cerrado and Amazon basin. When he learned about the mission and tasks of the BJF, he didn’t hesitate to become a Supporting Friend.
