Mission & Vision Vitablend
Mission: " To help our Customers create sustainable value through innovation."
Vision: " To be a Global Provider of Protection, Fortification, Health Enhancement Products and
The MT has been busy defining the essence of Vitablend: who are we as an organisation, what do we stand for and how do we want to present ourselves. The result has been summarized in the Vitablend House that is shown on several signs in the company.
Terms such as customer, quality and service are the basis for our right to exist. Therefore, they are the pillars on which the Vitablend House stands, where CUSTOMER is placed in the middle. This is because the customer must be the central point in our way of thinking.
The second pillar QUALITY is essential for us as producer of high quality products, amongst others infant nutrition. This should also be a constant factor in our work and improvements (we have seen in the last years what the impact is when we don’t control the organisation properly).
The final pillar is SERVICE. This means being reliable and flexible and being able to learn from your mistakes and becoming stronger than before.
These pillars are important in all business units that are mentioned in our VISION: being a producer that is active in the fields of Fortification, Protection, Health Enhancement Products (also known as Food Solutions) and Encapsulation (business unit VitaSquare) on a global level.
Of course you also need a MISSION to realize this vision and to form the roof of the house: creating added value for our customers through innovation.
To carry the pillars and the roof, we need a strong foundation.
The catalyst is CONTINUOUS IMPROVEMENT, something we have to do together.
And finally, the VALUES which we stand for: passionate, reliable, cooperation and being honest. It seems obvious, but is not always easy. This is also something we should keep in our minds continuously.
