Tulips for Food
In times of crisis, beautiful initiatives emerge that show solidarity, strength and entrepreneurship. While we, as a producer in the food industry, are in full business, many other businesses are currently struggling, for instance the flower industry.
By supporting the initiative Tulpen voor Voedsel (Tulips for Food) we firstly want to thank our employees for all their hard work and commitment. Thank you so much guys and girls!
Furthermore we want to thank all supermarket employees who make sure that everyone can keep on buying toilet paper and enjoying our products. And last, but definitely not least, we want to thank the employees of all care centers for taking such good care of the most vulnerable during this corona crisis. Thank you all!
Tulpenvoorvoedsel.nl is an initiative of Michiel van t Hek and Wilma Mesman (assisted by Tulpen Promotie Nederland, Van Der Slot Transport en ID Unlimited bv), that encourages the flourishing food industry/retail to support the growers by buying their fields full of (otherwise unsold) flowers for their employees.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Precautions
Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, Virgin Nuts introduced necessary measures to prevent COVID-19 from affecting our organisation. Business continues as usual, but of course we extended our strict hygiene procedures. Staff is divided over 2 buildings and everyone is instructed to keep as much distance to each other as possible. All (un)loading activities are performed with the utmost care to protect all people involved. Another measure is that we actively keep out visitors. We're in this together and we hope that all measures taken will pay off soon. Keep safe!

12th BRCGS Food Safety certificate!
Yesss! For the 12th year in a row, we passed our annual BRCGS Food Safety audit with glance and again the highest AA-level is achieved. More good news: our second facility (which is peanut free, especially for the food industry) will be included in the new certificate (April 2020). All of our unique and delicious sweet coated diced nuts and seeds optionally can be produced peanut free as well (and that’s rather unique too)… #peanutfree naturally!Read More
Crispy chocolate ingredients
Chocolate is #absolutelydelicious… PERIOD(.) Imagine that extra dimension if chocolate is enriched by caramelised nuts, seeds or puffed grains… #WOW.
Virgin Nuts is specialised in caramelising chocolate ingredients in many, only natural, flavours. Besides that the nuts and (puffed) cereals remain crunchy, it prevents fat bloom and that makes every #chocolateproducer and #chocolatelover very happy.
New Dry roasted product line is growing
Until recently, Virgin Nuts was solely known for its extensive and unique range of natural flavoured caramelised nuts. In the spring of 2019 we added a new product range which was introduced at the PLMA in Amsterdam. Our customers are increasingly recognizing and appreciating these Dry roasted and deliciously spiced snacks. This month we signed a major contract with one of the largest Northern European wholesalers in the nut sector.Read More
