Creation of the LMH Innovation division, working for all professions within the Group

LMH is enhancing its organisational structure in order to better meet the growing needs of all the Group’s employees on the topic of microorganisms, and the division will enable optimised and accelerated innovation in this field.

The primary objective in creating the LMH Innovation division is to develop the Group’s knowledge of microorganisms in Plant and Animal Nutrition. LMH is enhancing its organisational structure in order to better meet the growing needs of all the Group’s employees on the topic of microorganisms, and the division will enable optimised and accelerated innovation in this field.

In Plant Nutrition, its work focuses primarily on our products’ impact on soil microbiology, which is an important topic for the Group. A single gram of soil contains 1 billion microorganisms, and only 1% of them are known to science. There are still vast areas to explore before we understand how our products interact with the soil’s microbial flora and the impact they have on a plant’s nutrition. Biocontrol is another key line of research. Its aim is to protect the plant using natural mechanisms, based on the use of living organisms and natural substances*.

In Animal Nutrition, one of LMH’s notable roles is supporting work on bacterial flora in cattle rumen, as well as on the preservation and quality of silage. The laboratory also takes part in research work related to biogas production from manure or silage.

As such, LMH Innovation enables us to deepen CMI Roullier’s expertise in microorganisms, so as to offer even more innovative solutions in Plant and Animal Nutrition.

The LMH Tests division has two main functions:

  • Carrying out quality testing on raw materials, marine and plant extracts, and products from our factories, as well as on the stability and sterility of our formulations.
  • Testing the efficacy of the disinfectant and antiseptic properties of a wide range of solutions, as well as carrying out health and safety checks on all sample types (water, straw, etc.).

With the launch of the CMI, new clients have sought its expertise in fields as diverse as the medical and food production industries.
