Alltech has announced it will hold a ‘Great Debate,’ as part of its 25th International Animal Health and Nutrition Symposium.

This year’s debate will consider sustainability and the ACE principle – the need to achieve long-term profitability while continuing to be conscious of animal welfare, responsive to consumer needs and environmentally friendly – from three different points of view.

“Within this context, Alltech’s ‘Great Debate’ takes on a great importance,” said Dr. Pearse Lyons, president and founder of Alltech. “It is clear that sustainability must be viewed through the prism of the economic crisis.”
