Partnership between Vandemoortele and socially committed customer

Vandemoortele: preferred partner in Bakery products & sauces​ for Vayamundo hotels

Vayamundo runs two big hotels in Belgium and one holiday resort in the French Pyrenees. The capacity of the sites is 1,700 beds in Oostende and 750 beds in Houffalize. The sites have plenty of accommodations : many meeting rooms, sport & wellness accommodations,… Vandemoortele is the preferred partner in bakery products and sauces next to other products. 


Vandemoortele supports social project 'Bon Berger' school in Nyamata​​ (Rwanda)

Vayamundo is also socially committed. They start up or support a lot of local or international projects : activation of elderly, integration of long-term unemployed people, sustainability projects, education projects. Vayamundo has been rewarded with the international sustainability 'Green Key' label in Oostende.

Vayamundo asked their bakery partner Vandemoortele to help them in one of the social projects they support : the 'Bon Berger' school in Nyamata (Rwanda). This small independent school is starting up a bakery for internal consumption and for sales to local hotels and shops. The new bakery will be a source of income for the school as well as a workplace for poor parents of pupils. Our colleague Aimé Pype, technical advisor, is now in Rwanda to teach the bakers of the new bakery.
