Tecnovo S.A. – Crespo, Entre Ríos, Argentina
Tecnovo S.A. is a modern egg company that produces egg products for use in the food supply chain. It began as a production company in the main poultry basin in Crespo, Entre Ríos, Argentina, in 1995. Since then, it has become a leader in its sector providing processed egg products, like liquid whole egg, egg powder, liquid or powder albumin, and liquid or powdery yolk, for large food manufacturers throughout the world.
Tecnovo S.A. is committed to using Certified Humane® eggs to produce their liquid and powdered egg products, which are then sold to food manufacturing companies to be used in the production of foods such as mayonnaise, pasta, puddings, sweetbreads, pastries, and cookies. This means that Tecnovo S.A. only sources Certified Humane® eggs before moving them along in the supply chain to large food manufacturers.
“The Certified Humane® movement has had an enormous impact on the growth of global food chains, especially as they apply in Latin America,” says Luiz Mazzon, Director-General for Certified Humane® Latin America. “More and more companies are considering animal welfare when choosing their supplier of animal ingredients. The Certified Humane® program is innovative because it allows the use of the label even by companies that do not raise or handle animals directly, but are committed to using Certified Humane® products.” The philosophy of Tecnovo S.A. founders was to create a value chain that enhances the natural resources of the area, incorporating skilled labor and appropriate technology to enable it to access the food producers worldwide.
Tecnovo S.A. is the only company that joined the Global Compact in 2004 – an initiative of the United Nations (UN), which seeks to favor the development of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) worldwide, promoting a set of universal values that are considered essential to meet the needs of the world population.
Tecnovo S.A. also guarantees the quality of the products by working under GFSI (Global Food Safety Initiative) standards with food certification systems FSSC 22000 (Food Safety System Certification) for continuous improvement of the food safety management system with the aim of ensuring the supply of safe food to consumers.
