Supplement company nutritionists earn peer-reviewed rewards.

They’ve been doing their homework at NAF, with two members of its nutrition team receiving accolades from the wider scientific community. 

Kate Hore, NAF’s senior nutritionist, has become a Registered Animal Technologist with the British Society of Animal Science. 

Kate, who’s worked for the supplements and animal care company for more than 20 years, is now Kate Hore RNutr (Animal), R.Anim.Technol (Certified)

Meanwhile her NAF colleague Griselda Handy has gained her Registered Associate Nutritionist (ANutr) accreditation from the Association for Nutrition. 

Well known as a NAF brand manager, Griselda is also now a nutritionist. 

Evidence-based nutrition

“We never stop learning, here at NAF,” said Kate.

“I was thrilled to join the register of Certified Animal Technologists, a professional register accredited by the British Society of Animal Science in conjunction with the Royal Society of Biology,” she added when ETN asked her to explain the qualification. 

“The register particularly recognises the role of the application of scientific knowledge by those working within the industry.”

Kate’s work was peer reviewed before she was awarded the qualification. “It’s particularly pleasing that our nutrition work [at NAF] is recognised by fellow professionals,” she said.

“Both the RNutr and, particularly, the R.Anim.Technol require candidates to continue learning through audited CPD (Continuing Professional Development), so ensuring that we don’t rest on our laurels. 

“Through this commitment to continued learning, we’re able to ensure we keep moving forward to bring the industry the latest in evidence-based nutrition.”

Enthusiasm and passion 

Kate praised Griselda Handy’s “enthusiasm and passion for all things equine health and welfare related” – and expressed her delight at her colleague joining her as a nutritionist. 

“Together with her extensive practical knowledge of horse, pet and poultry feeding, Griselda is an asset to the Nutrition and Veterinary team here at NAF,” said Kate.

“I’m very proud of her, and the future for NAF and nutrition looks bright.”
