Spicemasters is a young international business that purchases and processes herbs and spices and sells them to the food industry. The company’s roots are in the processing of these raw materials, which gives them a head-start in terms of expertise. Thanks to the close collaboration with their own Mouw Maalderij processing business, Spicemasters can serve the customers even better.
A pungent spice or aromatic herb is both seductive and appetizing. Top quality, coupled with responsibly produced ingredients, is essential to Spicemasters and is the focus of our business throughout our contacts with suppliers, processors and customers.
The customers must be able to rely on the quality and integrity of the raw materials. Spicemasters relieve their clients of any worries on this score by purchasing only the best and ruling out inferior quality or any issues concerning the composition of herbs and spices. Spicemasters applies clear-cut procedures to maintain performance at a high level. It selects and audits all suppliers in terms of quality, food safety and ethics. All products must meet prevailing legal requirements, as well as Spicemasters’ rigorous specifications. The company examines samples on their sensory, chemical and bacteriological properties and does not purchase any raw materials grown on the basis of genetically modified material.
To guarantee the quality assurance, including annual auditing, Spicemasters is IFS Broker-certified. The own processing business, Mouw Maalderij, is also IFS Food-certified. Both entities are fully certified for halal and kosher products.
Spicemasters operate with complete transparency. As part of this policy, all raw materials and finished products are investigated and analyzed by an independent external laboratory. They consistently make use of a laboratory that has been approved by the Dutch Accreditation Council and that performs microbiological analyses under accreditation in accordance with NEN-EN-ISO/IEC 17025.
Spicemasters registers all data related to the reception, processing and distribution of their products, and this allows for the rapid tracing of all information related to raw materials used, product batches and packaging.
Spicemasters is a member of the Royal Dutch Spice Association and started the cooperation with innotaste as their distribution partner in summer 2021.
