Our customer segments
Luiten Food – Thomas Foods Europe is here for wholesalers, the cruise industry, retail and the food industry.
Luiten Food – Thomas Foods Europe also supplies wholesalers. We are the direct importer of many of our product groups, which allows us to buy at competitive prices. We actively work with our customers in terms of innovation, flexibility and packaging options. We offer companies the possibility of making long-term agreements with us, and if there are last-minute changes, we always look at how we can best serve our customers. Customers can expect the best quality from us, as we also expect the best quality from our suppliers.
Thanks to our growing overall selection, we are becoming increasingly interesting as a distributor in the cruise industry. We now supply major shipping companies within Europe. The products we supply to the cruise industry differ greatly. From luxury meat and seafood products to volume products such as chicken, anything is possible. We deliver per ship and we manage all customs formalities for each delivery in-house.
In our sector, when we talk about ‘the industry’ we mean the food industry. The customers we serve in this respect are producers of meat products, meat substitutes, snacks, meals and salads. Our role is to supply the ingredients for these products.
Below are some characteristics for supplying the food industry:
When ordering on demand, reliability and fast response are key. We can offer these securities, as we import directly ourselves and therefore have a short line of communication with suppliers. In addition, we boast in-house storage and distribution.
The food industry has high quality requirements for products, as the producer is responsible for the quality of the entire chain. The products we supply get processed into meals, and the producer of these products must be able to demonstrate that suppliers and intermediaries are certified. Luiten Food – Thomas Foods Europe holds several certifications, such as IFS, the Better Life label and the ASC label.
Besides supplying products for the food industry, we also supply to the pet food industry. To reduce waste flows, our production residues are used to make pet food.
At Luiten Food – Thomas Foods Europe, we are constantly innovating our product range. Our aim is to put together the optimal selection together with retailers, at home and abroad. Today’s consumer wants to be surprised with tasty and fresh food that promotes a high level of sustainability. Sustainability in terms of food such as meat, fish and vegetarian, but also in terms of packaging. We combine all consumer wishes into a complete range for every retailer.
