The story of the company starts in 1982 when Anne-Marie Stevens and Christian Vanvaek founded Isfi – International Spices and Food Import – in Braine-l’Alleud, near Brussels. What started as a local family business, turned into the biggest Belgian manufacturer of Herbs & Spices, exporting products all over the world.
In 2014, ISFI SPICES was acquired by a management team with a vast experience in FMCG and food. One year later, ISFI SPICES becomes the owner of the Piet Huysentruyt brand, covering a wide range of seasoningd and adding bouillons to the standard assortment. In parallel, the ISFI SPICES team succeeds year after year to enlarge the customer base of retailers, developing the herbs & spices category at high service levels. Over the past years, our foodservice channel has shown a steady growth, resulting in more and more professional chefs choosing the ISFI SPICES quality.
Despite the growth, ISFI SPICES has been able to keep the most important traits of a successful family business. We believe that loyalty, flexibility, cherishing genuine customer relationships and a true passion for herbs and spices make the difference for our customers. We are proud of our no-nonsense, creative approach which allows a fast implementation of customized product and category solutions.
