Production and logistics
No need to worry about production and logistics
Retail is detail. That is why at Schouten, we pay just as much attention to production and logistics as we do recipe composition. With access to numerous production techniques, excellent quality control, and full logistical support, we treat your private label as if it were our own brand. So your product is always on the right shelf at the right time.
Our production and logistics for your retail success:
Continuity in production
At Schouten, we work together with a variety of production partners. All of them have extensive machine parks and production lines. This give us – and you – access to all processing methods and ensures continuity, which is vital in retail.
GFSI certified and 100% vegetarian/vegan
Important for your shoppers: our GFSI-certified production sites always maintain a strict separation between vegetarian and vegan products and other product types. In fact, a number of production sites exclusively produce plant-based products. Schouten is unique in this respect.

Cross the border quickly with AEO
Do you want to outsource customs clearance? We will be happy to arrange this for you: We are AEO certified.
Did you know that an AEO certification is increasingly becoming the standard for customs? Brexit has made this certification even more relevant and important.
What is AEO?
AEO stands for Authorised Economic Operator. It is a customs certificate. It is proof to customs that you are a reliable party. Having this certificate gives you advantages in international trade. This way you are less strictly checked at the border. This makes it easier and faster for goods to cross the border.
