Ready for the future
“It is our belief that meeting the nutritional needs of generations to come will require a thoughtful and innovative approach.”
As we know, world population is steeply growing. By 2050 we will be more than 9 billion. As average incomes rise, consumption of animal proteins in the form of meat, fish and eggs will rise accordingly.
Proteins are truly essential nutrients for common health. They come at a price, especially since depletion of our natural resources forms an imminent danger. This has become a global issue and also one of our main concerns. Optimizing the feed will help limiting the use of natural resources in raising livestock. As an expert in optimizing feed ingredients, Impextraco develops products that maximize productivity and quality.
Together with premixers, feedmills and farmers (our partners and customers) we play a key role in producing high quality safe additives and ingredients for all livestock farmer producing eggs meat and milk.
Impextraco believe it is important that people worldwide share the benefit of our products. Sustainability remains central throughout our approach, from the development and production of our feed additives and ingredients to their distribution and actual use on site.
We are committed to develop & produce products that will help meet tomorrow’s nutritional needs.
IFIF AND FAO FEED SAFETY PARTNERSHIP
As Impextraco is a member of the IFIF, we agree with the FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations), who are outlining their efforts on their Capacity Development for Feed Safety multi-stakeholder partnership programme in this interesting video. They're featuring IFIF as a key partner in their efforts. Our Power-Protexion products focuses on feed safety as an important part of feed performance leading to the protection of the animal’s health and that's how Impextraco also contributes to the Feed for Food Safety Program.
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.
