Allergen-free products

Allergen-free products

Under the name Dutch Spices, Epos produces allergen-free herbs/herb blends, marinades and sauces.

As the first and only plant in Europe, as Dutch Spices we can produce a range of products that is entirely free of the 14 labelled allergens and another 10 additional allergens according to the LeDa list.

Dutch Spices' dream

The entire range is free of the 14 listed allergens and 10 additional allergens according to the LeDa list. As first and still only plant in Europe, Dutch Spices allows us to produce products that meet the strict requirements of the VITAL standard, which means that we do not process allergens as ingredients as well as any allergens that could be present due to cross-contamination.

Dutch Spices focuses on various markets: industry, traditional craft, consumer and food service so Dutch Spices' dream can be implemented as much as possible.

According to Dutch Spices' philosophy, everyone should be able to enjoy tasty and safe food.
After all, we know that food plays an important part in our lives: for health, for growth, and for enjoyment. It is a right everyone should have.

Tasty and free of 24 allergens

With very clean strictly checked products, Dutch Spices is unique to Europe in its activities. This has been realised through the construction of a completely new production facility in Nijkerk from the starting principle: 'If you really want to change, you have to disconnect with the past'. Dutch Spices was created from that principle.

After all, if you want to offer tasty and allergen-free products, then you need to work according to a strict standard, you need to have checked the entire production chain and need to be open to optimisations every day. This allows us to guarantee that Dutch Spices' products meet the strict VITAL standard.

VITAL standard - first in Europe

In part thanks to the modern production location, educated employees and large amount of knowledge of allergen-free products and processes, Dutch Spices guarantees that the products produced and/or delivered by them meet the VITAL standard.

VITAL is the globally accepted standard for allergen management. This strict standard can only be complied with together with all links in the chain. This requires a huge commitment on the part of all parties involved on a daily basis.
