In the 1970s, our founder, Dr. Pearse Lyons, immigrated to the United States with a dream: to sustain our planet and all things living on it. As an Irish scientist, he saw an opportunity to apply his yeast fermentation expertise to animal nutrition challenges, and his dream became a reality when he founded Alltech in 1980 with just $10,000. Today, a global team of more than 6,000 people around the world shares this vision of sustaining and nourishing the world’s plants, animals and people. We deliver on this vision by improving plant, feed and food quality through nutrition and scientific innovation, particularly yeast-based technology. Our team is fully committed to helping plants and animals achieve their full potential while supporting producers in greater efficiency, profitability and sustainability.

Starting with the soil
At Alltech Crop Science, growth is natural with us.
We provide natural-based products and solutions to agronomic and horticultural challenges facing producers across the globe, addressing the production of citrus, silage and everything in between.
Our goal is to seamlessly bridge the gap between science and sustainability. By sharing our expertise, providing constant technical support and exploring the intricacies of each region we serve, we are not only pursuing greater productivity, profitability and sustainability for every crop — we are working alongside producers and agronomists to build the future of agriculture.
Focusing on the feed…
Through our innovative study of nutrigenomics, our nutritional technologies help animals maximize the nutrients in their feed for optimal well-being and performance.
We work with producers across the globe to address the animal nutrition issues most important to them, including:
- Feed efficiency
- Antibiotic-free production
- Food enrichment
- Management of mycotoxins
- Gut health
...and the farm
Alltech’s support goes beyond nutrition. We partner with producers to increase their efficiency, productivity and profitability through analytical services, including:
- Alltech IFM to analyze the feed ration
- Alltech 37+ to quantify mycotoxin risk
- Alltech E-CO2 to assess on-farm efficiency and sustainability
We bring traceability, quality and improved nutrition to the table.
As a family company, we understand the consumer’s desire to ensure that their family’s meals are as safe and nutritious as possible. From our innovative use of organic minerals to our work in crop science, we focus on improving nutrient value throughout the food chain.
Our guiding principle
In all of these endeavors, we are guided by our ACE principle, our promise that in doing business we have a positive impact on the Animal, Consumer and Environment.
Our mission is to improve the health and performance of people, animals and plants through 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.
We firmly believe agriculture has the greatest potential to shape the future of our planet.
We are inspired by the great challenge the world has presented us — to produce enough safe, nutritious food for all, while caring for our animals, and sustaining our land, air and water for future generations. Our natural resources may be finite, but human ingenuity is infinite.
Planet of Plenty is a mission to:
- Elevate the agri-food sector. It’s critical we recognize agriculture’s ability to address several of the most significant issues our planet faces — nutrition, human and animal well-being, and the preservation of natural resources. We do this by telling the true, yet little-told, stories about the passionate people who are working within the agri-food sector to create a Planet of Plenty.
- Inspire farmers, ranchers and producers to embrace new technologies, business models and improved farm management practices.
- Create new business models to help our customers and grow our business.
What started as one company’s vision has become a call for collaboration.
Planet of Plenty is a vision of promise, possibility and positivity for the future. It’s our belief that a world of abundance is achievable, but it will take all of us working together.
It’s a vision that must be led by science, technology and a shared will to make a difference — to plant trees we’ll never see grow.
Sustainability means taking positive action today for the success of tomorrow. It’s a pursuit where there’s always room for improvement … and a new idea.
