Lallemand acquires Lactic Solutions LLC

October 28, 2017 |

In Georgia, Lallemand Biofuels & Distilled Spirits, acquired Lactic Solutions LLC. Lactic Solutions has been developing genetically modified lactic acid bacteria products specifically for the biofuels industry. According to their press release, these new products will create value for fuel ethanol producers through higher ethanol production yields and reduced consumption of antibiotics. This acquisition will be integrated into LBDS.

The Lactic Solutions technology was developed by Professors Jim Steele and Jeff Broadbent from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and Utah State University, respectively.

“We are very pleased to add this new technology to our ever growing pipeline of innovation.” said Angus Ballard, President of Lallemand Biofuels & Distilled Spirits. “Lallemand has been producing yeast for over 100 years and bacteria (for human probiotics and for animal health) for over 30 years, so this new product category will fit well with our production assets, know-how and technical focus.”
