Founded in 1980 by Irish biochemist and entrepreneur Dr. Pearse Lyons, Alltech is a leading global biotechnology company whose mission is to improve the health and performance of people, animals and plants through natural nutrition and scientific innovation. We pursue this mission guided by what we call the ACE principle, our promise that in doing business we have a positive impact on the Animal, the Consumer and the Environment.
Our core business improves animal health and performance by adding nutritional value to feed, naturally, through Alltech’s innovative use of yeast fermentation, enzyme technology, algae and nutrigenomics, which studies the impact of nutrition at the genetic level. Our technologies and support programs enable farmers to realize greater efficiency, profitability and sustainability on their farms. For more than 30 years, Alltech has been seen as a leader in nutritional innovation. The lifeblood of our company is research and development and we believe in sharing our findings with our partners in order to raise awareness of and provide solutions for our industry’s greatest challenges.
Our success depends on the success of the industry as a whole and that is why we make it our mission to address current industry issues such as raw feed material costs and nutritional quality, emerging diseases, animal products and pollution.
