The History of Osprey Biotechnics...
HistoryIn 1963, Larrick and John Glendening, along with the help of Stew Farr, formed Microlife Technics, the predecessor company to Osprey Biotechnics. Microlife Technics was the leader in its field for the development and production of direct vat starter cultures to the food industry. Their cultures were used by international food companies in the production of yogurt, cottage cheese, sourdough bread, pepperoni, wine, and other food products. Microlife established exacting quality control and activity standards, as might be expected, since their products were used in the food we eat. Microlife also had an environmental culture division, which produced cultures for waste treatment, animal, and plant health. In the late 1980's Microlife was sold, but Glendening reacquired the environmental culture division.

The environmental culture division began operating as Osprey Biotechnics in 1990. The company proceeded with the production of state-of-the-art microbial products for waste treatment, crop protection, animal and plant health applications, environmental restoration and pollution prevention.

Osprey Biotechnics began by offering products for industrial/municipal wastewater treatment. Since then, Osprey Biotechnics expanded into contract fermentation and toll manufacturing of Bacillus and Pseudomonas cultures for a variety of applications, such as animal probiotics, agricultural bio-pesticides and consumer products. These include bacterial concentrates and ready-to-use formulations under private label. Osprey's strength is in the production and stabilization of Pseudomonas and Bacillus cultures. All cultures and bio-products are manufactured to exacting specifications exceeding industry standards.
