EA Nutra - New Product Range From Equine America
Since it's launch in 1997, Equine America has become one of the UK's leading names in equine nutrition with an extensive range of feed supplements and externals from Cortaflex to Xxtra Boost. Our new brand EA Nutra follows the traditional family values synonymous with Equine America but will enable us to make a new range of premium, innovative products for the domestic and international market. EA Nutra products will still be subject to rigorous independent testing in the UK & Europe and quality control, but will not be accredited under The Universal Feed Assurance Scheme (UFAS) and the BETA NOPS Scheme.
Equine America CEO Lee Middleton said “We are extremely proud of our UFAS & BETA NOPS accreditation for our Equine America and Cortaflex ranges. It has, however, limited us somewhat in the development of new products due to the restrictions enforced by the NOPS code on the use of ingredients. By launching a new brand under EA Nutra, we can respond to the demand from our customers who are looking for specific products as well as introducing new revolutionary ingredients to the equestrian market.”
The new range will still be subjected to rigorous testing. EA Nutra products will be independently batch tested by two world renowned testing facilities, Laboratoire Des Courses Hippiques in France and Independent Equine Nutrition in the UK to ensure products are free from prohibited substances in accordance with FEI Regulations and therefore safe for use in competition.
