Dutch Spices announced that all products will be vegetarian and vegan. Besides producing allergen safe products, being the first taste producer for 100% vegetarian and 100% vegan products is for Dutch Spices the next step.
Dutch Spices is a producer of herbs, spices, blends, sauces, marinades, stocks and chutneys.
All raw materials are judged on the specific requirements. In addition cross-contamination is also investigated and excluded. This means all products from Dutch Spices are suitable for food industries producing products for consumers with a vegetarian and vegan food pattern.
Initially consumers chose a vegetarian diet because the didn’t want to eat meat anymore. Recently, we see a growing group of consumers choosing vegetarian because of sustainability. Another motive is the improved taste of meat substitutes. For a vegan diet sustainability and health are the main motives.
Motive product developers
Food producers embrace the increasing trend of vegetarian and vegan. Many companies indicate that this trend is an important motive for the development of alternative products, like hybrid products. For the other ingredients that are not allowed in a vegan diet, substitutes are also available.
Awareness of the right supplier
In the product development for a vegetarian and vegan diet, most developers use their regular ingredients. However, using products from Dutch Spices means that companies don’t have to worry about allergen management and meeting the requirements for vegan and vegetarian products. This results in less interruption and less worries in the purchase department, product development and quality assurance.
