Nutmeg is a spice with a warm, strong aromatic smell and taste. Verstegen retrieves their herbs and spices from their original areas. That is why Verstegen nutmeg comes from Banda. The nutmeg tree originally grows on the Moluccas where it can grow up to 15 meters high. The tree gives its first fruits after seven years and can be harvested up to three times a year. In 2018, Verstegen started a pilot to make the nutmeg chain the first spice with blockchain technology to show transparency from farmer to consumer.
