HOW WE WORK

Our core values – integrity, collaboration, creativity, passion and pace

What is also special about AB Vista is our pioneering spirit, our passion for trailblazing and taking the initiative, our inherent agility and our non-conformist approach to innovation – all underpinned by the integrity that is at the heart of the business.

We believe that it’s this approach that has led to our continued gains in market share and has driven our geographical expansion. Our core values – integrity, collaboration, creativity, passion and pace – are reflected in the ways that we work, both externally with our customers and contacts and internally with our own people.

A passionate and collaborative approach to innovation

Developing the power to change the status quo is not easy. It is born out of fascination with physiological processes. This leads to discovery and from discovery comes innovation. Everyone at AB Vista shares that fascination – it is why we go to work and it drives everything we do.

Since we were formed in 2004, AB Vista has grown to be one of the largest suppliers of enzymes, yeast and natural betaine to the global animal nutrition industry. We attribute our success to our strong focus on scientific integrity and our open, collaborative relationships with our customers and research partners.

Corporate and Social Responsibility

As a global business, AB Vista is acutely aware of our position in society and the impact we can have on the world in which we operate. Our approach to corporate and social responsibility is guided by the principles of our parent company, Associated British Foods, namely responsibility for the stewardship of our environment, our people, our neighbours and for promoting good health.

Animal feed safety is central to the way we work and AB Vista’s enzyme products are produced at FAMI-QS certified sites. FAMI-QS, also known as International Safe Feed/Food, is the global certification scheme focussing on the safety, quality and regulatory compliance of speciality feed ingredients.

Furthermore, our own sustainability programme, "Formula 24", focusses on the following objectives:

Running a successful lab usually generates a growing amount of waste – as we found at ESC, our lab in Wales. However, the team was determined to reverse this trend and over the last 12 months have implemented a number of recycling initiatives which now sees plastic labware and feed samples recycled alongside the standard paper, glass and cans. They now recycle over 40% of their waste and have plans to increase this – in fact they have now found a way to recycle the plastic gloves they use, adding another 3% to their over recycling total.

We encourage our offices to develop ties with local schools and colleges to help promote agriculture as a career option – whilst at the same time getting more involved with the community. This local support extends further still with many of our employees taking part in a range of community volunteer and sponsorship programmes in their regions.

Links with local schools and colleges

At AB Vista we are keen for our larger offices to develop links with local schools and colleges so we can help promote agriculture as a career option whilst getting more involved with the local community

ESC in Wales has links with Bridgend College and has supported short term work placements and a longer term industry placement, as well as giving talks on enzyme assays at the College.
Our Marlborough office has teamed up with local secondary school St Johns, and is involved in their career fairs, mock interviews, career talks and annual Science Week.

Community support

Our office in Janesville, USA, supports a local team in the First Lego League (FLL), introducing children aged from 9 to 14 to the fun of science and technology. Our employee Trisha coaches the team and we are also one of their sponsors for the current season.

And when Hurricane Irma hit the East coast of the United States in September 2017, the team in our lab in Plantation, Florida, volunteered to join the relief effort, sorting out food donated for the shelters.
