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 nutrition and scientific innovation. Alltech pursues this mission guided by the ACE principle, a promise that in doing business Alltech has a positive impact on the Animal, the Consumer and the Environment.
Acquired by Alltech in February 2015, Alltech E-CO2 has allowed Alltech to strengthen its environmental offering to livestock and crop producers. The acquisition builds on the close partnership forged between the two companies to help farmers make their operations more efficient and profitable, sustainably.
The core business of Alltech is to improve animal health and performance by adding nutritional value to feed through Alltech’s innovative use of yeast fermentation, enzyme technology, algae and nutrigenomics, which studies the impact of nutrition at the genetic level. These technologies and support programmes enable farmers to realize greater efficiency, profitability and sustainability on their farms.
Headquartered in Kentucky, USA, Alltech trades in more than 120 countries worldwide and has more than 5,000 employees. Alltech also has nearly 100 production facilities strategically positioned across the globe and three bioscience centers, dedicated to research and education, two located in the USA and one in Ireland.
Alltech is the only privately held and family-owned business among the top five animal health companies in the world. This is a source of competitive advantage, allowing Alltech to stay focused on customer needs, innovation and long-term objectives.
