Mission, vision and strategy

Mission

Nedspice’s mission is to provide the assurance that our customers can produce their products according to their specifications. We do this by sourcing, processing and delivering single spices, herbs and dehydrated vegetables in an economically efficient and quality consistent way.

Vision

We share our knowledge and experience to optimise our and our customers’ performance. We constantly initiate and innovate in order to be decisive in our market. We secure an uninterrupted supply of authentic, natural and food safe spices. We commit to the importance of developing a sustainable supply chain. Therefore we invest in people, in relationships, in order to be partners.

Strategy

Nedspice has been a recognised 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.

Main areas of savings are in:

  • Handling of the product,

  • Processing and packing,

  • Warehousing, Insurance and Finance.

Furthermore economies of scale advantages can be achieved by combining small to medium sized volumes of our customers' requirements.
