Irish equine science company Plusvital is delighted to announce that their manufacturing facility has just been approved for the BETA NOPS certification.
Adding this latest certification to the already UFAS-accredited facility provides further assurance to customers that Plusvital supplements are manufactured under strict safety guidelines, with adherence to international anti-doping regulations, while maintaining the highest level of product quality.
The British Equestrian Trade Association (BETA)’s highly successful NOPS scheme was established in 2009 to help reduce the risk of naturally occurring prohibited substances (or NOPS) in equine feed and supplements. A NOPS is one that is either naturally present within certain ingredients or that occurs as a result of inadvertent cross-contamination during processing before arriving at the feed manufacturer’s facility.[vc_single_image image=”17067″ img_size=”medium”]All raw materials used in Plusvital products are tested externally to confirm the absence of Naturally Occurring Prohibited Substances (NOPS) by a third party international specialised laboratory, ensuring Plusvital products are safe to use at FEI competition level and in all racing regions globally.
Plusvital has been a leader in equine nutrition since its formation in 1975, growing out of Ireland’s world-famous racing and sport horse tradition. The company exports to over 30 countries and continues to focus on innovative nutraceuticals to support some of the most successful horse owners across the globe, including Group-winning trainers Johnny Murtagh and Jim Bolger, as well as Cathal Daniels, who recently moved to no. 9 in the FEI Eventing World Athlete rankings.
Commenting on Plusvital’s achievement of the BETA NOPS accreditation, Ciara Watt Plusvital’s General Manager for Nutraceuticals said: “Plusvital has always been committed to producing the highest quality products, which adhere to international anti-doping regulations. This BETA NOPS accreditation further reassures our valued customers as we continue to expand into new markets in the months ahead. Well done to all the team involved.”
Plusvital have also confirmed that they currently have a limited quantity of hand sanitiser available to support their customers throughout the COVID-19 outbreak. This hand sanitiser, along with the rest of the Plusvital range, can be purchased through the company’s online store at Plusvital.com.
