Founded in 1980 by Irish entrepreneur and scientist Dr. Pearse Lyons, Alltech delivers smarter, more sustainable solutions for agriculture. Our products improve the health and performance of plants and animals, resulting in better quality for consumers and a decreased environmental impact.
We are a global leader in the animal health industry, producing additives, premix supplements, feed and complete feed. Celebrating 40 years in 2020, we carry forward a legacy of innovation and a unique culture that views challenges through an entrepreneurial lens.
Along with our more than 5,000 talented team members worldwide, we envision a “Planet of Plenty™. We believe that through science, technology and human ingenuity, a world of abundance can be ours. It’s a vision of promise, possibility and positivity for the future, but it will take all of us working together.
Alltech is a private, family-owned company, which allows us to adapt quickly to our customers’ needs and maintain focus on advanced innovation. Headquartered just outside of Lexington, Kentucky, USA, Alltech has a strong presence in all regions of the world.
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.
