Uma abordagem apaixonada e colaborativa à inovação

Desenvolver o poder de mudar o status quo não é fácil. Ele nasce do fascínio pelos processos fisiológicos. Isto leva à descoberta e da descoberta nasce a inovação. Todos na AB Vista compartilham esse fascínio - é por isso que vamos para o trabalho e ele impulsiona tudo o que fazemos. Desde que começamos em 2004, a AB Vista cresceu para ser um dos maiores fornecedores de enzimas na nutrição animal, leveduras vivas em ração animal e produção de betaína natural para a indústria global de nutrição animal. Atribuímos nosso sucesso ao nosso forte foco na integridade científica e em nossas relações abertas e colaborativas com nossos clientes e parceiros de pesquisa

Parceiros e associações

Parceiros locais

Encorajamos nossos escritórios a desenvolver laços com escolas e faculdades locais para ajudar a promover a agricultura como uma opção de carreira - ao mesmo tempo em que se envolvem mais com a comunidade. Este apoio local se estende ainda mais com muitos de nossos funcionários participando de uma série de programas de voluntariado e patrocínio comunitário em suas regiões.

Links com escolas e faculdades locais

Na AB Vista estamos interessados em que nossos escritórios maiores desenvolvam vínculos com escolas e faculdades locais para que possamos ajudar a promover a agricultura como uma opção de carreira, ao mesmo tempo em que nos envolvemos mais com a comunidade local. A ESC no País de Gales tem vínculos com a Faculdade Bridgend e tem apoiado colocações de trabalho de curto prazo e uma colocação de longo prazo na indústria, além de dar palestras sobre ensaios enzimáticos na Faculdade. Nosso escritório de Marlborough se uniu à escola secundária local St. Johns e está envolvido em suas feiras de carreira, entrevistas simuladas, palestras sobre carreira e na Semana da Ciência anual

Apoio comunitário

Nosso escritório em Janesville, EUA, apóia uma equipe local na Primeira Liga de Lego (FLL), apresentando às crianças de 9 a 14 anos a diversão da ciência e da tecnologia. Nossa funcionária Trisha treina o time e somos também um de seus patrocinadores para a temporada atual. E quando o Furacão Irma atingiu a costa leste dos Estados Unidos em setembro de 2017, a equipe em nosso laboratório em Plantation, Flórida, voluntariou-se para se juntar ao esforço de ajuda, separando os alimentos doados para os abrigos
