Second Alltech ONE World Tour Stop Wraps Up

The second stop of the Alltech ONE World Tour (ONE) wrapped up today in Dublin, Ireland, after two days with more than 500 international agri-food leaders to discuss collaborative solutions and strategies for success in today’s agriculture and agri-food industries. The discussions fostered at ONE Dublin explore collaborative solutions to the greatest challenges facing the agri-food industry as it confronts the “4 Cs” — the major forces of climate, conflict, consumer trends and rising costs.

Dr. Mark Lyons, president and CEO of Alltech, welcomed delegates to Dublin. “Agriculture can transform things in ways that other industries cannot and is at the interface of nourishing the present and preserving the future,” Lyons said. “Our belief is that agriculture has the greatest potential to positively influence the future of our planet, provide nutrition for all, help rural communities thrive and replenish our planet’s resources.”

Following Dr. Lyons, Dr. Vaughn Holder, director of ruminant research at Alltech, and Nikki Putnam Badding, registered dietician and director of human nutrition initiatives at Alltech, to discuss agriculture’s role in saving the planet.

ONE Dublin delegates also heard from industry experts on various topics, including consumer demands, succeeding through conflict, and demonstrating the relationship between agriculture and sustainability for the world, and were able to attend focus-track sessions on soil and crops, animals, and the business of food and farming.

The Alltech ONE World Tour continues after ONE Dublin, with the next stop in Calgary, Canada, on July 3–4, following the upcoming IFAJ Congress next week. For more information and to register for an Alltech ONE World Tour stop, visit
