Sligro Food Group encompasses foodservice businesses in the Netherlands and Belgium, offering a full range of food and food-related non-food products and services in the food and beverages wholesale market.
Our business units focus primarily on our customers and each has its own clear profile in the market. They are managed at Group level and supported by a professional, efficient and fully-integrated back-office organisation. The various operations work very closely together to maximise the benefits from internal synergy.
The organisation is driven by our Sligro Food Group culture, our 'Green Blood', which has its key focus on customers and our shared passion for tasty, good and honest food. Safeguarding and promoting this particular culture, therefore, has our specific attention in a steadily growing organisation.
Sligro Food Group has identified a number of key objectives, appropriate to the organisation. Achieving our objectives will strengthen Sligro Food Group's independent position in the market, a position we intend to retain in the longer term.
Our international growth strategy provides our staff with opportunities for personal development while giving our suppliers the chance to increase their product sales and introduce new product lines. Society as a whole benefits from increasing levels of employment and the resultant rise in tax revenues.
We accordingly observe strict food safety practices as regards both food processing and the products themselves throughout the various links in the organisation. With a well-equipped quality assurance department we are rigorous in our quality checks. Our procurement department also insists on the same high quality standards and quality assurance procedures among our suppliers and we monitor compliance with these standards both directly and indirectly, through specialist institutions.
We absorb the impact of cost increases by constantly increasing the efficiency of our operations, for example by ensuring that our distribution, communications, data and information systems are as effective as possible.
