Natural allergens such as pollens, dust mites, and animal epithelium are the main ingredients of our products. Every year ALK grows, collects, and harvests several tons of allergens from our fields, tree orchards and greenhouse. Product Stewardship is a process where we recommend safe disposal techniques that are compliant with local disposal ordinances and help to preserve our environment.
