The main stumbling block we've found within the UK, is that people don't have a clue how to pronounce our company name. As you can guess, this can somewhat hinder the process of introducing yourself. This little problem is completely understandable of course, as a Dutch company, the pronounciation is a world away from the UK.
We had the exact same problem on our first days!
So, to clear up any confusion, the actual pronounciation of the company is 'Ver-Shtay-Gun' but we're more than happy if you want to carry on with calling us 'Versta-jun', 'Versta-gun' or anything like that. Honestly, it's fine.
Founded in 1886 in Rotterdam, The Netherlands, Verstegen Spices & Sauces is a family company, currently in its fourth generation of ownership. As a market leading producer and supplier of ingredients and food products, our philosophy is simple; to source, produce and supply only premium quality products and to inspire you with new tastes and ideas...all of which we do, with pleasure.
