The 2009 Inc. 500: The Top Green Companies
Alltech, Lexington, Kentucky, No. 3597
Dr. Pearse Lyons, who founded Alltech in 1980, thinks highly of animal health, especially that of livestock. That's why he started Alltech, a manufacturer of natural ingredients for use in animal, alcohol, and food production, mainly animal feed supplements. Lyons’ goal is for Alltech to be Kentucky’s third “super-brand”—after Kentucky Fried Chicken and Muhammad Ali.
