What we are
We see ourselves as highly specialised manufacturers and global trend-setters for machines,
production lines and systems in food cutting and slicing technology. TREIF combines the
greatest possible range of different cutting technologies in independently operating
Competence Units. Whether for meat, sausage and cheese or bread and confectionery,
or for cutting dices, strips or slices, TREIF knows the most suitable cutting technique and
exactly how to apply it.
Our goal is customer satisfaction. We hope to achieve this through our unique combination
of cutting technology and customer service.
Our company philosophy
Maximisation of customer benefit
As opposed to focussing purely on profit maximisation, all our efforts are channelled into
offering our customers the greatest possible benefit.
Our unique range of cutting techniques combined with the principle of close co-operation
with our customers enables us to create innovative products both for our customers (!) and ourselves.
Mediocrity is unacceptable. Only the highest demands on the quality of performance of
each of our employees, suppliers and service providers guarantee the first class standards
required to achieve maximum benefit.
The focus is on our strengths
Our business is focussed entirely on improving our strengths and core competencies, rather
than diluting them in any unnecessary attempts at diversification.
Positive customer contacts
We want every customer to feel they have gained something positive every time they contact us.
No half measures
Whatever we do, we do it properly - or not at all.
With a passion
For us, cutting and processing food is a passion. That's why we put heart and soul into our business.
Management and personnel policy
Our management team is conscious of the fact that top performance can only flourish in an
atmosphere of employee motivation, enthusiasm and team spirit. They do their utmost to
ensure such an atmosphere prevails.
In return, from our employees we expect motivation, enthusiasm, creativity, flexibility, responsibility,
loyalty, hard work and the ability to see themselves as part of the overall process.
Setting common objectives, talking to employees on a personal level, performance reviews and
mutual respect and honesty in workplace relations are essential components of any personnel
Our employees are given all the information they need to take responsibility for their own
The ability to see essentials and the simple route to any goal is the basis on which we operate.
Our principles for manufacturing and development
To ensure our core competencies continue to develop and improve, our manufacturing capabilities
and new developments are kept at the highest possible technical and organisational levels.
The required level of added value is determined in accordance with economic efficiency, flexibility
and core competencies, though certain strategic areas have to remain under our own control.
TREIF GOES GREEN
Our contribution to sustainability
- Plastic cups don't have any chances
From 2nd November, 2020 plastic cups will no longer be available on our coffee machines. Our administrative staff will use their own cups and the production staff can acquire environmentally and compostable paper cups – if required.
TREIF is thus taking a further step towards sustainability.
For the protection of our environment we reduce our paper consumption to the absolutely necessary. Since 2019 our brochures have been available in digital form only. Our well-known TREIF bags are FSC-certified. Documents such as order confirmations and orders are processed digitally in our ERP-system. Invoices are also digitally recorded and approved. With Expensya we were able to digitalise the accounting process for travel expenses which allows a convenient accounting of business trips via smartphone. Many manual interfaces as well as cumbersome and inefficient paper processes are eliminated.
- Sustainability in purchasing
Sustainability plays a central role, especially in purchasing and warehouse logistics. The reduction of packaging material is coordinated with our suppliers already in advance. For example, reusable packaging and transport boxes being in circulation are used (exchangeable packaging). In the future cardboard is to be reused as filling material for our packaging. If possible, order processes are digitised in order to reduce the paper consumption.
- Sustainability in production
Sustainability is also of great significance in industry. In order to obtain a truly sustainable product and to keep the impact on the planet as low as possible, the entire value chain must be adapted. TREIF focuses on the preservation of natural resources, a conscious contact with the personnel, as well as transparency and a sense of responsibility. This common process of sustainability is lived both within and outside the company.
- Photovoltaic system
TREIF has a photovoltaic system and thus generates part of the required electricity itself.
