Lallemand’s presence in the brewing industry dates from the early 1970s when the company started producing dried pure culture brewing yeasts for beer kit manufacturers in Canada. In subsequent years, this activity was expanded to the production of other specific ale and lager beer yeasts for different clients in the United States, Europe and Australasia.
Lallemand’s extensive, unique knowledge in the propagation of many different yeast strains led us to be consulted by a number of international breweries on yeast nutrition. As a result of this expertise, we developed and continue to perfect a specialized range of yeast nutrients that target specific problems in the brewery resulting from variations in raw material quality.
Lallemand’s beer-related activities have continued to grow, expanding beyond the production of beer yeast and yeast nutrients for the industrial, micro and home brewer. Strategic acquisitions in North America (Siebel Institute of Technology) and Europe (AB Vickers Ltd.) helped enhance the platform from which new products and services were launched. Today, Lallemand Brewing is a global business serving all segments of the brewing industry.
