VANILLA VENTURE CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITYVanilla Venture focuses on the following pillars of corporate social responsibility: top quality (product), the human dimension (people), chain management (process) and CO2 reduction (planet). This is testament to the fact that offering high-quality products and adding value to society can go hand in hand. The benefits are 3-fold: the buyer is guaranteed a top quality product that has been fairly procured, the supplier receives a fair price and appreciation for the delivered product and society at large benefits with reduced CO2 emissions, the maintenance of traditional food production methods and the continued use of natural flavours and food products in general.
CHAIN MANAGEMENT & QUALITYVanilla Venture works with carefully selected craft producers from around the world. All of these producers make the highest quality products that aren’t always certified organic, yet we continue working with them. Why? Because of the high costs involved in obtaining certification, many artisanal producers don’t apply, yet their products are still of the highest production value. The taste and quality of many of the products we offer is only achievable through the use of ancient techniques, with a respect for nature and the omission of flavour enhancers and additives. Because Vanilla Venture maintains such close personal contact with suppliers, we know with absolute clarity where the products have been made and what happens at every stage of the production process. In the testing of our suppliers, Vanilla Venture considers the preservation of age-old and artisanal production methods more important than the acquisition of products with a commercially obtained ‘organic’ label.
PEOPLEVanilla Venture works closely with the "Uit de Steigers" foundation in Maastricht. They provide internships for young autistic adults throughout Holland. This programme includes work such as the packaging of herbs and spices as well as projects that involve the making and maintenance of new furniture from old scaffolding planks, for example.
- Vanilla Venture delivers all orders in durable, reimbursable deposit crates. These have been cut open, so that the refrigerated vehicle can be loaded easily, and the doors opened as little as possible.
- The first time you order spices from Vanilla Venture, they will come packaged in a tin. With subsequent deliveries, you will receive them in refill pouches.
- Vanilla Venture works hard to minimise waste. All our waste is taken separately to recognised waste collectors.
- Vanilla Venture tries to minimise paper waste by communicating electronically as much as possible. We send all our invoices by email and encourage our customers to accept this way of invoicing.
- Vanilla Venture is striving to meet its goal of digitising packing slips within 1 year, not only to save paper and toner but also to save time and operate more efficiently.
