November 9, 2018

Alltech has officially opened its state-of-the-art organic trace mineral manufacturing plant in Pune, India. With a production capacity of 25,000 tons/year, it is the largest organic trace mineral plant in Asia. Alltech India opened its office in 2001, with production operations in Bengaluru, in 2004. Over the years, the company has grown twenty-fold, serving poultry, dairy and aqua feed millers and farmers to improve their efficiency and profitability. “When we outgrew our plant capacity in 2016 and decided to expand our business and invest in a bigger plant, Pune was the first choice,” said Mark Lyons, President and CEO of Alltech. The Pune facility was designed to cater not only to the local market but to South Asia and Southeast Asia, Australia and Europe as well. The plant spans a total area of 132,000 sqft and employs 50 full-time team members. The plant features modern scientific technology and utilizes advanced quality systems.
