TWIGS NATURALS GIVES YOU A SLICE OF NATURE
Trinidad & Tobago is the southernmost nation in the Caribbean. This pair of islands is blessed with tropical rainforests and rich soil. Our products come straight from our farmers that are adhered to International Agricultural Standards. They are then taken to our multipurpose facility where they are prepared, blended and packaged with pride by hand by US FDA PCQI Certified Personnel to give the Artisan Caribbean Flavour whether it’s our tea or dried seasonings. This meticulous process gives our product shelf life of over 2 years. Refrigeration is not needed.
All Twigs Naturals staff are trained as PCQI (Preventive Controls Qualified Individual). This methodology involves identifying the possible risks and eliminating them before they occur. This international food production standard embraces the age-old adage that prevention is better than cure.
Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) is a system for ensuring that products are consistently produced and controlled according to quality standards. We at Twigs Naturals strive to maintain the highest quality. This involves everything from choosing the best farmers so that we can get the best ingredients to work through our production process as quickly as possible to enhance and or maintain naturally occurring flavour.
Good Agricultural Practices (GAP) and Good Handling Practices (GHP) are voluntary audits that verify that fruits and vegetables are produced, packed, handled, and stored as safely as possible to minimize risks of microbial food safety hazards. The farmers that we have partnered with fully understand this so they take all measured possible to be compliant. This means Twigs Naturals products starts with the best.
Health Canada clearly defines the rules for using the term. Twigs Naturals have added nothing to the raw ingredients. We use one of the oldest food preservation methods - Dehydration. Nature has given us everything that we need. Twigs Naturals just makes it convenient.
