LIPTOSA - IAF1404

Lípidos Toledo S.A. began in 1996 as a family business and under the guidance of a group of professionals with extensive experience in the Animal Nutrition field. From the outset, the company's mission has been to provide its clients with personalised service and efficient, natural products that are able to meet the demands of the sector.

Facilities

In 2000 Lípidos Toledo S.A. moved its facilities, building a modern manufacturing plant in Talavera de la Reina (Toledo). In 2012 it acquired a new industrial warehouse in the vicinity of the main facilities where the manufacturing of the powder additives takes place and a third storage warehouse.

With these new facilities Lípidos Toledo S.A. is able to have separate manufacturing lines for the different products they manufacture avoiding the risk of cross contamination.


Furthermore, the new facilities enable to company to manufacture products with fishmeal derivatives, allowing the company to further expansion, mainly in the aquaculture range.

The facilities allow the manufacture of nutritional products, liquid and powder based phytobiotic additives,nutraceutical products and nutritional and specialty products without any risk of the products becoming cross contaminated.

In 2010, Lípidos Toledo S.A. acquired a large office space at C/ San Romualdo 12-14 in Madrid where all logistics work is carried out.


This enables Lípidos Toledo S.A. to fulfil its objective of manufacturing products of the highest quality and providing its clients the best service.

30/10/2014: Oldendorff becomes a member of the World Ocean Council

Oldendorff Carriers, headquartered in Lübeck, Germany, has become a member of the World Ocean Council (WOC), expanding the geographic scope and diversity of this unprecedented global ocean industry alliance.



With more than 40 new vessels expected in the next 2-3 years, Oldendorff’s Green Ships Program clearly demonstrates company leadership in tackling environmental issues and overall fleet performance.

Oldendorff’s Managing Director, Thomas Weber, stated, “Oldendorff is pleased to become a member of the World Ocean Council. The WOC has created an international cross-sectoral forum for ocean industry collaboration on sustainability that doesn’t exist elsewhere.”

Oldendorff has already participated actively in WOC events, such as the recent WOC Business Forum on Ocean Policy and Planning (New York City, 28-30 September, 2014).

Capt Paul Jeffrey, Senior Port Projects Manager for Oldendorff, participated in the event and noted, “The WOC role on ocean policy is crucial to not only to the shipping sector, but to all ocean industries. The WOC is usually the only ocean industry presence at the UN and other international meetings on cross-cutting ocean policy, such as the current Law of the Sea negotiations.

The WOC Business Forum last month exemplifies WOC’s unique and vital role in bringing together the diverse ocean business community.”

30/10/2014: Woolworths commits to sourcing ASC certified seafood

Leading South African retailer, Woolworths, has pledged to source their farmed seafood from sustainable and responsible operations by 2020.

Woolworths has joined a growing number of businesses making formal commitments to support responsible aquaculture practices. The premium food and clothing retailer introduced its sustainable seafood policy in 2008 and was the first retailer to sign the WWF-SASSI Retail Charter*, it then went on to introduce its Fishing for the Future programme.

By the end of 2015, all of Woolworths’ farmed products will be sourced from aquaculture operations that are:

  • Engaged in a credible, time-bound improvement project* or, where applicable
  • WWF-SASSI green-listed, or
  • Formally committed to achieving the Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC) certification or have other credible standards in place
And by the end of 2020, all aquaculture species sold will be:
  • From aquaculture operations that are engaged in a credible, time-bound Improvement Project*, or
  • WWF-SASSI green-listed, or
  • Where applicable, ASC (or equivalent) certified
Committing to a responsible future
Woolworths prides itself on providing its customers with a wide range of seafood from responsible, well-managed sources. To achieve this they worked for many years with organisations such as WWF to help them meet their goals.

Hezron Joseph, Woolworths Seafood Technologist, said: “Woolworths is dedicated to seafood sustainability and providing the best for our customers. Through our Fishing for the Future programme we are helping aquaculture become a more environmentally and socially responsible choice for our customers. Our commitments, which include the ASC, help us achieve this by ensuring that our seafood is responsibly sourced and traceable back to the farm that raised it.”

Esther Luiten, ASC’s Commercial Marketing Manager, said: “I applaud Woolworths for its commitment to responsible aquaculture and recognising the importance of moving global production to a more sustainable basis. It is great that Woolworths is offering a responsible choice for consumers in South Africa. I look forward to working with them as they strive to meet their sustainability goals.”

More information around their public commitments and other milestones can be found on their website at

Helping consumers make positive choices
To meet their commitment, Woolworths hopes to offer consumers ASC certified trout, salmon and shrimp in the near future.

The ASC on-product logo makes it easier for consumers to get involved and make positive environmental and socially responsible choices. The commitment by Woolworths means consumers will find it easier to choose certified responsible seafood.

ASC certified seafood, bearing the consumer label, is a credible responsible product that helps retailers address the growing demand for responsibly produced seafood.

29/10/2014: Algae found in human DNA

Researchers, whose paper appeared in 'Proceedings of the National Academy of Science', have found DNA resembling that of an algae-native chlorovirus while taking throat swabs from healthy human subjects during a study on cognitive functioning, reports Phys Org.
 


The discovery represents the first documented case of chlorovirus gene sequences in the human throat cavity, the researchers reported.

"Chloroviruses are worldwide," said senior author James Van Etten, William Allington Distinguished Professor of Plant Pathology and a co-director of the Nebraska Center for Virology, who helped discover their existence in green algae more than 30 years ago. "They're very common among inland bodies of fresh water such as lakes and ponds.

"But I don't know of many examples of viruses jumping from one kingdom to another. If this turns out to be true, this is quite rare and a total surprise."
