In the early 20th century in Montréal (Canada), Lallemand’s original focus was on supplying fresh bakers yeast to the local market. In the early 1970s, Lallemand began producing distiller’s yeast for Seagram’s and a few other distillers in Canada and abroad.
This was the beginning of what has become the Lallemand Specialty Division, which is one of the world’s leaders in the supply of yeast, bacteria and yeast derivatives to the fermented beverage. Lallemand produces its yeasts at plants in North America, Europe and South Africa.
Lallemand Biofuels & Distilled Spirits was formed in 2012 with the acquisition and integration of North American Bioproducts Corps’ alcohol and distilling activities into a new global business unit.
