On the picture we can see quebec visitors with Mr. Jean Fontaine, Dr. Robert Gauthier and Jean-François Fontaine attending the event.
Jefo is a world leader in the field of non-medicated performance feed additives. Its industry-wide reputation and strong international growth are based on a corporate positioning that puts the animal’s optimal performance first. To that end, Jefo creates and develops additives for the specific requirements of individual species. It’s an approach that reflects Jefo’s particular product development philosophy, and one that has produced results, as well as major scientific advances. Today, Jefo introduces a new corporate identity to highlight this important stage in the company’s evolution.
A new global corporate identity
Our new positioning is based on strong operational pillars and corporate values. We're convinced it was time to bring the various divisions under one consistent brand says president, Jean Fontaine. So for example, United Nutrients Corporation, part of the Jefo group of companies, will now operate under the Jefo brand. The new identity is based on the idea of the natural cycle, the continuity of life. Both humans and animals are part of this cycle, and their interaction is an apt example of balanced responsibility; giving the best to the animal because it is ultimately, given back to us. With this philosophy in mind, the new logotype reflects Jefo's interest in and respect for each animal species for which the company develops highly specialized feed products.
A word about the graphic symbol. It starts with a connecting line which represents the notion of give-and-take, of how everything in the world, including animal and human nutrition, is interconnected. It also represents Jefo's commitment to ensuring that the connection is maintained in a responsible, healthy way. Clockwise around the unbroken circle, the size of the animals increases to represent the companys main objective: healthy, strong growth. Finally, the hand in the symbol speaks to the company's promise to be actively and responsibly engaged. Jefo chose the circle to stand for the world, and for the company's place in it: as a global company that cares about the planet.
The new positioning and identity will be rolled out in all communications in North America and in the many countries around the world where Jefo is present. In EUROPE, the new brand will be launched in September at the International Trade Fair for Livestock, SPACE 2010. New packaging, kiosks, stationery, business cards, delivery vehicles, and corporate communications including advertising, promotions and website have been designed. The origins of the company are found in its human approach, in its regard for animal health, in its philosophy of using science to improve animal nutrition. Now, in this new positioning, the two elements, the world of nature and the world of science, come together in an expressive way.

L’entreprise Jefo Nutrition vient d’ajouter à son catalogue le désinfectant biodégradable et non toxique Thymox, développé par Laboratoire M2.
Il aura fallu cinq ans de recherche avant d’arriver à ce produit qui offre la même efficacité que les produits concurrents, mais dont les ingrédients actifs sont biodégradables, non toxiques et non corrosifs. La molécule désinfectante provient d’une huile essentielle tirée d’une variété de Thym, De nombreux tests à la ferme ont été menés pour établir les meilleures combinaisons de composantes. Non seulement, le travail de développement a été semé d’embûches, mais les chercheurs ont aussi dû obtenir toutes les homologations permettant de certifier leurs prétentions au sujet des propriétés de ce produit.
Selon les promoteurs, le Thymox s’inscrit dans un protocole de nettoyage tout comme n’importe quel autre produit désinfectant. Ils indiquent toutefois que le produit est plus coûteux qu’un désinfectant conventionnel puisque sa production est plus difficile

Pan Pacific Pork Expo 2008, incorporating Uptake, held on the Gold Coast, Queensland 18-19 June was considered a huge success, drawing plenty of interest from close to 400 delegates.
Due to the current tough climate the Australian pig industry is operating in, this was the first year two major key industry events were brought together – PPPE and Uptake.
Both events are biennial and this year marked 10 years for PPPE (fifth event). Chairman of the PPPE 2008 (incorporating Uptake) Committee, Dr Rob van Barneveld, said the event would not have been possible without the support of the committed exhibitors and sponsors.
Dr van Barneveld said. “Events such as these are crucial to the survival of the Australian pork industry. They provide an opportunity for producers to listen to the experts, ask questions and gain a greater understanding of where their industry is heading.
“The industry has been through some tough times, however by gaining a better understating of where we are heading, and getting high quality research and information from across the world into the wider audience, the Australian pork industry can look forward to a healthy future".
Based on the success of the 2008 event, Dr van Barneveld believes that APL and the Pork CRC will consider using a similar platform in 2010 for the delivery of key research outcomes, with June 16-17, 2010 currently suggested as dates at a venue to be advised.
