True Leaf Medicine International Ltd., a plant-forward wellness brand for people and their pets, has received National Animal Supplement Council (NASC) certification for its True Leaf Pet True Hemp line of hemp-seed based pet supplements.
The NASC Quality Seal program was developed after the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s 21CFR111 regulations for human dietary supplements, and the Food Safety Modernization Act, to give buyers and pet parents peace of mind that the products they are giving their beloved pets have passed rigorous certification standards.
True Leaf received the NASC Seal after successfully passing a thorough quality audit and documentation review. As part of the certification, NASC ensures stringent ingredient qualification, quality production processes, adverse event reporting procedures, continuous product and data monitoring, and allowable product claims.
“NASC is one of the highest-level certifications in the pet industry,” said Darcy Bomford, founder and chief executive officer of True Leaf. “Our True Hemp products will now display the NASC Seal meaning True Leaf has committed to the highest current standards of quality and safety in the animal supplement industry today.”
True Leaf Pet, a division of True Leaf, pioneered hemp-seed based pet supplements that provide calming support, promote hip and joint health, and help immune and heart function. The company’s True Hemp line is one of the first hemp-seed based pet products to be marketed worldwide.
True Hemp dog chews, dental sticks, and supplement oils are now sold in more than 1,800 stores across North America and Europe.
