AZOMITE® (pronounced ā-zō-mite) is an acronym for the "A to Z of Minerals Including Trace Elements — registered as a trademark by its founder, Rollin Anderson in the early 1940s. Anderson tested and sold crushed AZOMITE® as a feed additive and soil amendment, throughout Utah and California, until businessman W. Wesley Emerson took an interest in further development and leased the reserves in 1988.
As Company President, Emerson, further developed the AZOMITE® market and created a team capable of achieving significant goals for the future. In April of 2011, AZOMITE®'s operations were been consolidated to its Nephi, Utah headquarters, where significant streamlining of production has been implemented in proximity to its source. AZOMITE® continues to become a mainstay in agriculture around the world, as a poultry and livestock feed ingredient and a remineralizing soil fertilizer.
To utilize the unique, nutient-rich AZOMITE® source as a base to provide innovative, high quality, organic and ecologically friendly feed ingredients and soil remineralizing products; while maintaining strong stakeholder returns.
AZOMITE® is a 100% naturally-derived feed additive and soil remineralizer mined in Sanpete County, Utah. This unique deposit was formed by a natural volcanic eruption as volcanic ash was deposited into an ancient seabed — and pushed to the surface by tectonic activity. The mineral deposit is now a series of pink hogbacks (hills) where AZOMITE® is mined exclusively by AZOMITE Mineral Products, Inc. 68 years after the initial discovery AZOMITE Mineral Products has found no other mining deposit with anything close to its wide array of its naturally occuring composition. While other products have attempted to emulate AZOMITE® — scientific analysis proves they fall short. The organic movement recognizes AZOMITE® as the premier soil remineralizing product with a positive worldwide reputation. Scientific and agricultural trials have been conducted in many countries, including the U.S., Brazil, Mexico, Ecuador, China, Indonesia, Vietnam resulting in increased yields, survivability, and economic benefits. The Chinese government tested AZOMITE® for five years before approving registration. Each test included a “competitive” local Chinese product compared to AZOMITE®. Researchers show that AZOMITE®'s unique composition sets it apart from any other naturally occurring mineral deposit in the world.
Mineral depletion of soils is a growing global concern. Soil management programs that include trace mineral supplementation have been shown to grow more crops with higher nutritional value. AZOMITE® offers an organic, sustainable solution by adding minerals to depleted soils, as well as to the actual crops. Minerals can increase capacity to withstand drought and temperature fluctuations, ultimately improving the nutrient content and yields of the food supply. Global hunger and malnutrition are issues that AZOMITE® helps address.
