From Humble beginnings...

When in 1847 Hendrik Schutter first began selling and renting sacks for grain at a Rotterdam dockside, never would have he imaged his business to have evolved into the entity that is Schutter Group today.



Throughout the years and Schutter generations, the Group’s activities expanded to encompass global supply chain services for food, feed and fuel. Whilst technological innovation has increased exponentially since, the original Schutter principles remain.


Independence and integrity are the unshakable cornerstones of Schutter Group operations, implemented in accordance with the highest possible quality standards. Our 150 years’ heritage at the helm of supply chain management puts us in the perfect position to move forward together with present and future customers…turning their risks into our challenges.


Schutter Group’s activities have evolved over the years as market demands have changed and we are now involved in global supply chain services and logistics support including inspection services, laboratory testing services, risk management solutions, shipping and transportation and certification and quality audits.


Quality, service excellence and technical expertise remain central to our operations. From our offices and laboratories around the world, we provide a top class service throughout the supply chain.


Our global accreditations and certifications provide the confidence and assurance our customers need and our tradition and heritage deserves.
