Alltech acquires Lienert Australia to support local agri

As part of its strategy to strengthen its support of agriculture at the local level, global animal nutrition company Alltech is proud to welcome Australian premix manufacturer and feed ingredient supplier Lienert Australia, to its corporate family.

Alltech has purchased 100% of the shares in Lienert Australia from the Lienert family, which was finalised yesterday with the support of both companies. This move solidifies their long-term partnership in providing greater local on-farm support to Australian farmers to make their operations more efficient, profitable and sustainable.

Both Lienert Australia and Alltech are family-owned businesses dedicated to bringing nutritional solutions to the farm and food industry. For more than 40 years, Lienert Australia has manufactured, distributed and supplied ingredients, supplements and nutritional advice to the livestock and feedstock industries within Australia, New Zealand and the Philippines. Their clients range from small family farms to integrated operations and commercial feed mills.

The acquisition will enable the companies to collaborate on research, production and distribution, strengthening their ability to provide farmers and members of the food chain with the latest in natural, nutritional technology.

Lienert Australia’s distribution fleet covers most agricultural regions of Australia, and its premix manufacturing plants are GMP accredited facilities equipped to accommodate a broad range of manufactured products.  Lienert Australia is licensed to manufacture veterinary chemical products and controlled substances by the Australia Pesticides & Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA), and has a registered quality management system to the HACCP standard with Feedsafe Accreditation & AS4801 OHS Accreditation.
