Twin Rivers Technologies’ (TRT) Refined Glycerin has been Safe Quality Food (SQF) Level 2 certified since 2015. TRT is recognized by the SQF Institute, a division of the Food Marketing Institute (FMI), as a HACCP Based Food Safety Plan Supplier.


SQF Certified

This year, TRT is working to achieve SQF Certification for our Kosher and Halal Fatty Acids. This certification reflects the goal of TRT’s food safety management system to improve business processes, increase efficiencies and reduce risk. To receive this level of certification Twin Rivers Technologies must:

  • meet a number of strict SQF safety and sanitation requirements
  • develop and maintain a high level of sustainable Good Manufacturing Practice (GMPs)
  • develop and follow a Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points (HAACP) program to ensure food safety
  • develop a food safety risk analysis while providing continuous SQF training for all its employees 

SQF certification is recognized worldwide, informing customers that they are doing business with TRT who adheres to the strictest food safety and sanitation standards. It gives consumers a sense of confidence knowing they are buying products from TRT who is recognized for producing safe food products. This certification gives external validation to the internal safety commitment to which Twin Rivers Technologies has always adhered.

Being SQF-certified builds confidence between TRT and their customers. Having a recognized single-audit system in place eliminates the need for duplicate, costly audits from other sources. The SQF program has been implemented by more than 5,000 companies operating in Asia-Pacific, the Middle East, Europe, South America and in the United States. In addition, SQF Certification meets the safety standard of the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI).
