Industry Leader Honored for Improving Standards for Animal Health Supplements The National Animal Supplement Council (NASC) sent a clear message at its 2011 Annual Conference and inaugural Awards Dinner in San Diego by recognizing the Arenus® commitment to delivering “Health and Nutrition Through Science” with a Visibility Award for the company’s efforts above and beyond promoting the goals of the NASC Quality Seal for improving standards in equine and animal health supplements.
Only 11 out of more than 100 NASC-audited member companies and leaders in equine and animal health were recognized with a Visibility Award.
Arenus is a division of Novus Nutrition Brands, LLC, which focuses on developing health and dietary supplements for equine and companion animal markets. “We are an animal health and nutrition company.
