Nedspice has been a recognized leader in the spice business for decades and first point of call for spice and food industries for sourcing their input materials. Our aim is to be a 'partner' to our customers and to add value in the short as well as the long term.
Nedspice was one of the first companies that offered the food industry the option to outsource single spice ingredients to origin countries. Compliance with food safety, labour and environmental regulations in consuming countries are creating an environment in which food industries can only process at higher costs. We work together with our customers to develop customer-specific supply programs. Our overall strategy is to combine our expertise in sourcing, merchanting and distribution with our know-how of processing ingredients in origin. This provides a unique proposition for food industries to source their ingredients in a cost-efficient manner, thereby saving on the cost of ownership of ingredients. Moving processing of single spice ingredients from high cost consuming markets to low cost producing regions is a condition for the food ingredient companies to remain competitive.
To assure quality Nedspice Group is BRC, FSSC22000 and Organic certified and HACCP procedures have been implemented. Besides this the Group complies also with HALAL, Kosher, Valid It, Rainforest Alliance, and Sedex requirements.
