Zinpro Named Preferred Product Supplier by NASC
Zinpro Corp. of Eden Prairie, Minn., announced its acceptance as a National Animal Supplement Council (NASC) Preferred Product Supplier. In November, NASC provisionally approved the company’s original product, Zinpro zinc methionine complex, for use in equine and companion animal market segments, as a preferred product in the Preferred Product Supplier program.
Suppliers of raw materials that participate in the NASC Preferred Product Supplier program must meet comprehensive standards for testing and other specifications to ensure NASC members can buy from trusted companies, according to the organization. Preferred Suppliers are important to NASC members, because they help to improve efficiency, which reduces cost, in addition to benefiting finished product quality, NASC stated.
The Preferred Product Supplier program spotlights and differentiates quality vendors that, unlike opportunistic suppliers, are committed to operating responsibly and with transparency,” said Bill Bookout, president of NASC. “The program is important to NASC members, because it makes finding and accepting a responsible supplier easy and helps to ensure members can purchase quality ingredients, which in turn increases consumer confidence in member companies.”
