Enjoying the world, by preserving the world

As a family-owned company with over 180 years of experience in the spice trade, BCFoods Europe B.V. has a long tradition of responsibility, to our employees, our partners and to society. This responsibility is a great good in our business.

Sustainable Spices Initiative (SSI)

In order to secure future sourcing we have recently partnered up with the Sustainable Spices Initiative (SSI). As a member of SSI we share the believe that in today’s environment sustainability needs to be part of our long term strategy. This not only to secure sufficient products for future use, but also to recognize that in a connected global society our business can only be successful if it is inclusive and responsible.

Therefore we have committed to the following objectives:

  • To strive for a fully sustainable spice production and trade in the sector
  • To reach or exceed 25% sustainable sourcing in at least top 3 products categories by 2025
  • To achieve or exceed 10% point growth for top 3 product categories by 2021

We have proudly adjusted our business goals in order to achieve these objectives, and we encourage our business partners to do so as well. This should lead to better living conditions for farmers, and to securing the future supply base of natural spices.
