|The Verstegen spice trading company is well known in The Netherlands for its high quality spice products, which are also used by chefs and cooks in the restaurants all over the country.
Verstegen was founded in 1886 by Mr Verstegen. The company really prospered particularly after the 1st World War. Despite the crisis years of 1932 and 1933, the company managed to keep its head above water. By supplying quality, service and reliability, Verstegen acquired a large and permanent core of customers, who guaranteed the steady growth of the company.
Verstegen Spices & Sauces B.V. orders several hundred thousand kilograms of high-quality spices to be brought from every part of the world to Rotterdam every month. Until they can be processed, the spices are stored in one of the many warehouses in Rotterdam.
Nowadays we almost take it for granted that we can buy various herbs and spices pre-packaged at every supermarket. However, people who remember the time before the Second World War will remember that herbs and spices (like other groceries) were personally weighed by the grocer for each customer.
Herbs and spices are currently relatively affordable, especially given how little we need in order to season our food. It seems almost unimaginable that half a kilogram of ginger once cost the same as a ship, and that a bag of pepper was worth a human life!
By combining high-quality herbs, spices and other raw materials, new mixes and sauces are regularly produced in the test kitchen at Verstegen Spices & Sauces B.V. You can season your food in two shakes with these ready-made products, which guarantee success.
