2008 was an exciting year for Excalibur's Global Outreach Program. This program committed to sponsoring a drying lab at the University of Costa Rica, which will help the University peruse PhD level research projects focusing on the proper processing of medicinal herbs and promising cancer research.
In addition to this important involvement, Excalibur was chosen to represent the United States as a member of the CAFTA-DR Business Development Mission that focused on promoting trade relations between the Dominican Republic, Costa Rica and Nicaragua and the United States.
"We are sincerely proud of our global outreach efforts thus far," comments Excalibur's Global Outreach Program Head, Whitney Verkade, COO. "We are the only company in food dehydrator industry that is doing something in the educational process to help solve some of the economical and nutritional problems of the world."
"In 2009, we will persist with our global outreach focus. Our traveling chefs will continue to demonstrate the 'Art of Drying' around the globe," Verkade continues. "For example, our Chefs are working to help implement a healthy lunch and snack program in Costa Rican schools. We are working closely to test a pilot school and hope to expand to other schools throughout Costa Rica."
"In addition to our traveling chefs, we also employ business consultants that teach drying using a food dehydrator as an entrepreneurial business with training that includes gathering, washing, slicing, drying, packaging, and selling of dried goods."
Excalibur is truly unique in its commitment to help solve some of the world's major nutritional and economical problems. With their intense focus on their global outreach programs, 2009 is sure to bring results that are even more exciting.
