In late March ANCO invited feed producers, animal producers and veterinarians from Guatemala for a technical seminar in Austria. The guests from Guatemala were accompanied by Eddy de Passe from Exin, Anco FIT distributor for Guatemala.
The technical program took place in the premises of AGES, Austrian Agency for Health and Food Safety, in Vienna. AGES is owned by the Austrian Federal Ministry of Labour, Social Affairs, Health and Consumer Protection and the Austrian Federal Ministry for Sustainability and Tourism.
Dr. Friedrich Polesny, Department Head for the AGES Academy, presented an overview of the various functions and activities of AGES. Interesting facts included that AGES is the largest interdisciplinary lab organization in Austria, publishes around 192 scientific publications each year and hosts and organizes 200 training and advanced training seminars a year. Women make up for 60% of their workforce and 55% of the supervisory board.
Manfred Roessler, Director of Supply Chain Management at ANCO outlined quality management and quality control of products at ANCO in which AGES plays an important role. AGES is involved in the monitoring of the quality control of feed and feed supplements in Austria including products like Anco FIT.
Dr. Marco Nunes, ANCO technical manager for the LATAM market introduced the Anco FIT product line and applications in animal nutrition.
Michael Eder, managing partner at ANCO comments: “The Latin American markets are important and fast developing markets for our product line. It was a pleasure to welcome our guests from Guatemala in Austria and a great opportunity for us to learn more about what matters most to our customers in this market. This will help us improve our products and service and build better relationships in this market.”
