Our mushrooms: real champions!
Fresh mushrooms are the basis for all our products. Each and every one of them is processed just a few hours after they are harvested, and carefully conserved or frozen. In this way the product is kept in perfect condition, and as close as possible to its original flavour and nutritional value.
Strict requirements for growers
FLM food ingredients only works with a limited number of selected growers in the Netherlands. We maintain close ties with the entire supply chain. In this way we are able to strictly monitor quality and food safety, and ensure clear traceability and optimal hygienic production. This intensive collaboration throughout the chain enables us to implement your specific requirements, such as microbiological wishes, from the start of the production process.
Strict rules for the use of pesticides
Our growers use virtually no pesticides; this is monitored and certified by GlobalGap. As a result, our raw materials meet the highest international standards for pesticides and heavy metals.
