Corporate Social Responsibility
"We are proud we can foster children to give them a better future."
At Impextraco we highly value the commitment and dedication of the communities around the world in which we operate. This is why we feel that we should make our own contribution to their well-being, both economically and ecologically.
We chose to sustain the Marista Marcelino Champagnat Ecological School in Brazil through the Belgian King Baudouin Foundation. The ecological project’s aim is to foster sustainability through teaching and community action.
Children from underprivileged backgrounds are given the opportunity to attend this school, where they follow an educational programme offering them the chance of a better life. We contribute to this important initiative by paying their tuition fees and by following up on the children’s school results.
The school we selected is close to our Impextraco office in Curitiba, in the Brazilian state of Paraná, where also our research facilities are located.
The global spread of COVID-19 and the subsequent extreme measures that countries are implementing to slow down the virus have had and are having a serious impact in all of us.
Impextraco has increased its safety protocols as we continue to monitor the situation closely. This has translated into both an international travel ban for our sales force worldwide and the implementation of home-office policy for all employees whose presence at site was not essential for the daily operation.
Having said that and despite these moments of hardship, our production plant and distribution centers continue to operate at full capacity thanks to our factory team. Similarly, our QA/QC teams are guaranteeing the same high quality standards as usual and last, but not least, our diligent customer service team is assuring the delivery of our products under these exceptional circumstances.
I am a pig farmer in Queensland and I use Elitox® routinely in sow and weaning diets to help manage the challenges that mycotoxins can cause.
It is also used on an “as needs” basis in further rations if raw materials are deemed to present a higher risk. Use in sows is to optimize both fertility of sows and liveability of young pigs. We have been previously contended with lesions and discoloration of ears, feet and tails in weaning pigs. We attributed this to mycotoxins.
