Lallemand’s focus is on research-based products, especially proprietary strains of yeast and bacteria. The Lallemand R&D team works with a network of research partners at Universities, Institutes and Companies from all over the world. Cooperation with specialists in each sector provides a powerful resource for development and knowledge.
Internally, the Animal Nutrition R&D team benefits from close co-operation with other departments within Lallemand:
- Human Nutrition research is conducted at the Lallemand-Institut Rosell facilities in Montreal.
- Genetics and fermentation research is studied in Lallemand’s laboratory at the Biotechnology Research Institute (BRI) in Montreal.
- Process development and scale-up is performed at the Toulouse laboratory and the Montreal pilot plant.

Overall, this multisite, multidisciplinary approach is supported by a high level of company funding, positioning Lallemand as a major player in the development of microbial products for Animal Nutrition.
