Quality & Certification
"Impextraco has a long tradition of meeting and exceeding the highest quality standards."
We rely on a rigorous, integrated system of quality checks, physical inspections, analytical controls and good manufacturing practices based on a strategic risk evaluation. The implementation of our Quality System at all our production and distribution facilities has three main ingredients: HACCP, QA/QC and a full traceability.
In addition to our in-house quality control tools and procedures, our operations comply with the highest EU and worldwide safety regulations established by numerous international feed safety authorities, such as FAMIQS, GMP and ACS. Our state-of-the-art facilities and experimental units in Belgium and Brazil comply with all strict international guidelines.
The “GMP”-certification becomes Feed Chain Alliance “FCA”. Both logos will be used together untill May 2018, when FCA will be the only name that will be used.
Our approach to quality control is backed by strong ethics, tradition, experience and a close collaboration with the academic world.
PhD candidate position in close collaboration with industry (Baekeland mandate) on the development of blood-based biomarkers for the evaluation of intestinal health in broiler chickens.
Intestinal health of poultry has broad implications for the systemic health of birds, animal welfare, animal performances, food safety, and environmental impact. The gastrointestinal tract has digestive, absorptive, metabolic, immunological and endocrinological functions. In poultry production, major problems are of intestinal origin, including gut inflammation, dysbiosis and intestinal pathogens, including Salmonella and Clostridium perfringens. Besides, also mycotoxins and heat stress have been shown to have severe negative impact on intestinal health.
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.
