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.
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.
