In 2013 Rhumveld made the strategic decision to open a sourcing office in South America, which is being managed by Mrs. Eveline Tegelaar. In the past few years South America has become more important to Rhumveld because of many superfoods (eg. quinoa, chia, goldenberries, maca and acai). Our South America office is mainly responsible for sourcing activities, quality management (supplier audits) and development of our product portfolio. The main advantage of having an office in South America is to be close to our suppliers and therefore being able to ensure the high quality according to specifications, timely shipment of our orders and receiving the latest market information.
