SCD Probiotics was founded as Sustainable Community Development by Matthew Wood in 1998, in his garage while at the University of Columbia, Missouri.
As a soil science student, Matthew was awakened to the essential role of microbes in agricultural, environmental, plant, animal, and human health. He began marketing and selling probiotic products shortly after, then went on to earn his master’s degree in probiotics research at the University of Ryukyus in Okinawa, Japan. He then returned to the U.S. to grow SCD Probiotics into the international company it is today.
