Stop Spices was founded by mr Viktor Van Nieuwenhove, who was born in Brakel, in a butchers’ family. As a teacher at the local butcher’s school, he was creating various blends, based on spices and aromatic herbs which he grinded and blended by himself. He distributed those products to the butchers in his region. After various researches, Mr Van Nieuwenhove developed a product which had limited the usage of harmful sulphite.
Mr Willem Van Damme took over the company Stop and the distribution and sales market were not limited anymore to Brakel and its surroundings, but extended everywhere in Flanders and in a part of Wallonia. During the years he acquistted some other companies.
