Alltech introduced ‘Planet of Plenty’ awards for agriculture


BENGALURU, July 29, 2019 – Alltech has introduced ‘Planet of Plenty’ awards this year for the first time. At ONE: The Alltech Ideas Conference (ONE19), Dr. Mark Lyons, president and CEO of Alltech, shared Alltech’s new vision of ‘Working Together for a Planet of Plenty.’

A Planet of Plenty is an invitation to work together, across industry sectors and geographical boundaries, to create a place where animals, plants and people thrive in harmony.

Agriculture is uniquely positioned to address some of the world’s most challenging issues, including food insecurity, malnutrition, pollution of air, water and land, climate change, inequality and energy. No other industry has the potential to have a more positive impact on the planet.

To inspire a collaborative spirit and foster ingenuity, Alltech will be sharing the compelling stories of the people and technologies making a Planet of Plenty possible. Alltech has also created an award program to honor those who are already making positive contributions through their work, either in or with the agri-food sector.

The Planet of Plenty Awards will recognize those who are furthering a world of abundance through education, talent development, nutritional and digital technologies, new management practices, innovative ideas and human health within the agri-food sector.

The eight award categories include:

  • Farmer
  • Student
  • Educator
  • Journalist
  • Nonprofit
  • Community
  • Business
  • Startup

“Our own journey may be unique, but if we work together, our destination can be the same: A Planet of Plenty in which there is enough nutritious food for all, the world’s resources are responsibly managed for future generations, and our people, animals and plants thrive,” said Lyons. “These Planet of Plenty Awards celebrate those who have courageously embarked on that journey and are blazing new trails.” This is a unique opportunity to be recognised at a global platform and share the inspiring  stories said Dr. Aman Sayed, managing director India, regional director Alltech South Asia.

Awards recipients will be profiled via video and blog or podcast. Each winner will also receive a trip for two to ONE: The Alltech Ideas Conference (ONE2020), held in Lexington, Kentucky, USA on May 17-19, 2020, and will be honoured on the conference mainstage.
