Frits Schrouff is one of the founders of the present bean sprouts production in the Netherlands. One of the reasons for the continuously high quality of our bean sprouts is the use of advanced technology. It enables us to meet the specific needs of every type of customer in every market sector.
Besides quality, food safety and compliance with the EU-law for sprouting of seeds, plays an important role. Heuschen & Schrouff holds both HACCP- and IFS-certificates. Through our HACCP safety plan, the microbiological quality of our bean sprouts is monitored and guaranteed from raw material to the moment of delivery. Through our ‘Milieukeur’ certificate, we show our social responsibility, while contributing to a sustainable improvement of the environment.
The crate cleaning process runs in parallel to the production process. This operation is integrated in the production line to ensure that the bean sprouts are always loaded into clean and hygienic crates.
The bean sprout production process is executed as efficiently as possible by optimising the consumption of raw materials and energy. Most of the heat released during the production process and the spring water is recycled back into the process.
