Our big why

Animal Health

It's more than an industry. It's a passion.

We believe that animal health and humanity are intimately connected. From beloved companion animals to farm animals, when their lives are made better, we're all better for it.

The day-to-day ethos that drives our company forward is a mission focused on global partnerships, a Molecule to Market approach, and of course, innovation.

Our Story

Argenta was founded in New Zealand by Doug Cleverly, a scientist who naturally felt more at home in the lab solving problems than in the boardroom. Doug imbued the company with the spirit of Kiwi ingenuity and a global perspective. He saw a need in the market for an animal health company that could provide the highest quality services to customers of all sizes, all over the world. To this day, we are still dedicated solely to animal health and our founder's legacy of problem solving and inventiveness lives on within the organisation.
