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.
Climate change and extreme weather events are factors that influence mycotoxin prevalence around the globe for the last years. Mycotoxin contamination of grains causes economic losses and has negative consequences for the health of all livestock. Mycotoxin management, therefore, has the utmost priority for animal producers.

I am a dairy producer in the Americas, with about 2000 cows. My feed company had decided to buy corn of a new supplier and it contained severe toxin loads.
My cows were on 6 g/head/day Elitox® at the time. But they started to show T-2 type signs with bloody diarrhea throughout the herd and several cows died after being removed from the herd to the sick group.
