Plusbac was formed in 2010. The company was set up in order to develop the available use of beneficial microbes throughout our everyday lives…from the soil from which we produce, to the resulting food and water on our table, we are able to create a healthier existence. We have focused on microbes working within animal welfare, as well as sound work throughout many other areas of agriculture with exciting results. We strive to identify ecological alternatives to chemical inputs and sustainable solutions in order to regenerate and rebalance areas within agriculture and animal husbandry.
Our team continues to work hard with these various areas of use, with these beneficial microbes, which are all available to use within organic production.
We hope you can be enlightened by the content of our website and feel interested to learn more about how these microbes can benefit so many different areas within your own environment.
Meet the team
With a lofty background in food, Nick is passionate about anything natural and organic; and believes that proper provenance is all. Nick became involved with the subject of microorganisms in 2007 and immediately fell in love with the principle of what they could achieve. He recognised that beneficial bacteria provide a tremendous opportunity within business as they are beneficial to so many areas of life and thus Plusbac Ltd was created.
‘We have a great team and continue to build Plusbac Ltd. We all look forward, enthusiastically, to the path ahead.’
