The leading international ingredients distributor has been accredited due to its vast range of quality assured products which are supplied to sports nutrition manufacturers around the world.
Reputable manufacturers of sports nutrition products can certify their site with Informed-Sport so that their customers - companies in the sports nutrition industry – can easily identify them as having quality systems in place to limit the risk of contamination with banned substances. This ensures the integrity of the manufacturing process specifically for sports nutrition manufacturing practices.
Direct Food Ingredients is now the only company to be an accredited Informed Sports Site which also boasts a BRC Agents and Brokers accreditation.

“This is a forever expanding market and it is important that we keep one step ahead and supply the very best ingredients to every one of our customers.”
Ross Austen, Business Development Manager at Informed-Sport, said: “It is great to see Direct Food Ingredients taking the necessary precautions to reduce the risk of cross contamination within its facility by being part of the Informed-Sport site certification programme.
