Company profile

Meelunie is a global supplier of plant-based ingredients. Our product range covers a wide variety of food and non-food applications, and includes trusted brands such as Windmill Potato Starch alongside an ever-growing assortment of organic products.

In 2022, Meelunie will be expanding its portfolio with, for example, fava isolate proteins produced in a brand-new Danish facility. These highly-innovative products are completely neutral in taste and color, making them ideal for a wide range of food applications. This will enable Meelunie to be a frontrunner in the protein transition to plant-based ingredients.
As well as our commitment to this transition, we believe sustainability adds value throughout our global processes by creating a positive impact within our industry, supply chains and communities.
We have offices across 5 continents and export to over 100 countries. But our added value goes far beyond that of a supplier. From risk management to multi-sourcing, quality assurance to tailor-made supply chains, we can draw on 150 years’ experience to develop comprehensive solutions designed to meet your specific needs.
Offices: The Netherlands (HQ), USA, Mexico, Argentina, China, Singapore, Australia and South Africa.

Meelunie is its people. Loyal, self starting, dynamic professionals whom we empower to go that extra mile for their clients, suppliers and colleagues. We add value for our suppliers and customers. If you can do that, too, we’re interested in you. We invest time, energy and resources in our people. You’re given real responsibility, as well as every opportunity to develop yourself. And we expect you to grab that chance.

In exchange for your hard work and dedication, Meelunie offers you a fun, entrepreneurial-spirited, collaborative team environment. We offer a fantastic compensation package including competitive base pay, generous bonus, plus a comprehensive benefit package, with 401(k) match.
