My name is Jorn van der Bie and I joined Rhumveld, Winter & Konijn as from November 2022 in the role of Sr. Sales Manager Ingredients.
Working in the Food & Beverage Industry for almost 20 years in both Procurement and Sales.
The journey started with Verstegen Spices & Sauces and via Avandis, Solina and Nedspice the journey now continues at Rhumveld.
During my working life, I learned a lot about spices and herbs so one of the ambitions is to become an expert in nuts, seeds, fruit and superfood too. What a fascinating portfolio!
Another ambition is to work with the team to establish the leading role of Rhumveld in relation to sustainability – fair treats for every part of the supply chain.
But nothing can be achieved without customers. I strongly believe in partnerships and long-term relations, knowing the customer, understanding the needs, and working together on a continuous improved business relation.
On a personal note:
I believe that a better world starts with ourselves. If we all create a better environment, the world will be more beautiful every day. Therefore, I actively participate in numerous charities and a local political party.
And before my iron hip, I did all kinds of things like soccer, running the Rotterdam marathon, skydiving, long distance walking, paragliding, flew a glider and bungy jumping.
