Sustainability - Verstegen Algemeen

Sustainability

Sustainability is one of the key aspects of Verstegen Spices & Sauces' business operations. To us as a family-owned business this goes without saying as we work for our children's children. Verstegen believes it is important to learn from other companies and to encourage them to do business in a more sustainable way. Partnerships and collaboration are very important. After all, doing things together will create real impact. Verstegen wants to play an active role in expanding the CSR network within the Netherlands. Verstegen’s partnerships include MVO Nederland and the Sustainable Spice Initiative.
