The LIFELINE brand of products is manufactured and marketed by APC, Inc., the world’s largest producer of functional proteins. At APC, we pride ourselves on our scientifically proven solutions, but our success—just like yours—is traced back to the farm. APC was founded in 1981, but our story started 40 years earlier at a family-run creamery in the heart of Iowa. Today, our third-generation, family-owned company is a global leader in the ever advancing animal nutrition industry. We hold 20 patents on our products and processes, and our functional proteins are fed to animals around the globe.
