Small family business, big brand How can a modest purveyor of ‘colonial goods’ grow te become an international coffee roaster and tea trader? The answer is by having a love for the business and a passion for the products. And Simon Lévelt has had this for nearly 200 years.
A-brand in wholefoods Simon Lévelt introduced organic coffee and tea on the Dutch market over 25 years ago. Our coffee and tea is available in virtually every natural grocery store in the Netherlands.
All in one hand At Simon Lévelt we purchase all of our organic coffee and tea directly from the plantations. Plus we oversee the rest of the process. In other words, in addition to purchasing we also handle the blending, grading, cupping, producing and packaging. This is the only way we can guarantee a quality product.
Innovative Simon Lévelt has been a pioneer on the Dutch market for years. We were to first to introduce organic coffee and tea to consumers. And we also helped set up the Max Havelaar quality mark. We are as dedicated as ever to coming up with new, innovative products, such as our iced coffee and an exclusive line of ‘origin’ coffee.
Export Our pioneering role has not gone unnoticed. Our organic products are available in Europe and far beyond.
Succesfull shop formula We do not only export our coffee and tea worldwide. We also explore a chain of over 40 specialty shops in the Netherlands and Belgium. All of these shops are managed by dedicated franchisees. Sustainability clearly pays off given the success of our specialty shops.
