Trivium Foundation Meton (hereinafter referred to as Trivium Foundation) was officially established in September 2019 and is an initiative of Meton Food & Chemicals B.V. and its operating companies within the Meton group; Rhumveld Winter and Konijn B.V. (RWK), De Monchy International B.V. (DMI) and De Monchy Natural Products B.V. (DMNP). The foundation aims to contribute to a better living environment of the communities involved in the Meton group’s production- and supply chains, with a focus on education, sports and healthcare. In collaboration with local partners, Trivium has started projects in Brazil (2019), Bolivia (2019) and Madagascar (2020).
As an international sourcing, trading and distribution Company we cover the complete supply chain and regularly visit our suppliers and the communities that provide our products. Visiting these communities, often located in isolated areas, motivated us to do whatever we could to create change and provide these families a better future. By giving the children access to quality education, we are expanding their opportunities to reach their full potential. When students develop basic skills in numeracy and literacy in the lower primary grades, completion rates improve, with a positive impact on wage earnings. There is strong evidence to show that the early acquisition of reading skills is one of the best predictors of later educational success.
In addition to the local impact, the Foundation also strives to increase awareness among our stakeholders to the opportunity we have together to sustain these natural resources. The Trivium Foundation has been established as an independent non profit charitable organization supported by De Monchy businesses and managed by RWK, DMI and RWK representatives.
