How We Serve Our Customers

Posted by Danielle Wentworth on Dec 15, 2021 8:30:00 AM
Twin Rivers Technologies' goal is to be the preferred raw material supplier to our customers and to develop a supply partnership that fosters successful growth for each unique business. Our commitment to sustainability is consistent with those of our partners and together we have embraced the concept of environmental and social performance.  TRT will continue to drive this platform throughout our industry and our comprehensive supply chain.

Many of our customers are large global companies that have embraced the concept of environmental and social performance, and expect their suppliers to do the same. This reinforces the business value of our programs and involves all levels of the organization in the commitment to achieve our goals.

  In 2018, to ensure that TRT remains competitive in the marketplace, we became REACH certified. REACH is a regulation of the European Union, adopted to improve the protection of human health and the environment from the risks that can be posed by chemicals. It also promotes alternative methods for the hazard assessment of substances in order to reduce the number of tests on animals.
