Alltech has restated its commitment to advancing gender diversity, equality, and inclusion in the global meat and food supply chain through a recently announced two-year strategic partnership with Meat Business Women.

Meat Business Women and Alltech are partnering to enhance their teams’ skills through masterclasses and mentoring programs. Their collaboration aims to attract fresh talent to the agri-food sector. Alltech, as a strategic partner, will contribute expertise and guidance to shape the group’s strategic goals and bolster its mission of promoting women in the meat industry.

The organizations will also partner on two regional “Community Connect” events designed to foster networking opportunities for professionals throughout the agri-food supply chain. These events are scheduled to be held at Alltech offices: one in Stamford, UK, on Thursday, July 11, 2024, and another in Dunboyne, Ireland, on Thursday, September 5, 2024.

Orla McAleer, Chief Culture Officer at Alltech, will address both events. Joining her in Stamford will be Dr. Jules Taylor-Pickard, Global Technical Director at Alltech, and in Dunboyne will be Tara McCarthy, Global Vice President of ESG at Alltech. They will speak about pivotal moments from their career journeys and share more about why the two organisations are working together.

“We are thrilled to partner with Meat Business Women to champion gender diversity and inclusion within the agri-food sector. By empowering women through access to invaluable resources and networking opportunities, we are not only fostering individual growth but also driving positive change across the industry,” said McAleer. “Alltech believes that inclusion cultivates creativity, drives innovation and is essential to the company’s purpose of Working Together for a Planet of PlentyTM. In 2019 Alltech selected Gender Equality as one of the nine United Nations Sustainable Development Goals to which the company is committed to advancing.”

Partnerships director at Meat Business Women, Harriet Wilson, said, “We are delighted that Alltech has joined the Meat Business Women family as a strategic partner and look forward to working closely with their brilliant team. We know that networking is a crucial skill for women to develop, so we’re delighted that Alltech has generously agreed to support us with these two events across the UK and the Republic of Ireland so that even more of our community can come together, learn, connect and develop their careers.”

Meat Business Women is the United Nations’ recognised global professional network for women working across the meat industry. It was created to improve the sustainability of the meat sector and grow the pipeline of female talent in this male-dominated industry. 

Alltech is a global leader that delivers smarter, more sustainable solutions for agriculture. Its diverse portfolio of products and services improves the health and performance of animals and plants, resulting in better nutrition for all and a decreased environmental impact.
