Our Innovation Labs, which are driven by passion, unlock the key to the future of nutraceuticals where research and development is taken to the next level. We will continue to push the limits to find new natural solutions to enhance animal health, performance and welfare, while we develop alternatives to antibiotic production, which is key to sustainable food production.
100% Natural Drug-free Products
The use of natural ingredients for animal health is becoming increasingly important and we are proud to lead the move away from antibiotics, with our cutting-edge, drug-free natural solutions. Our nutraceutical ranges use renewable herbal ingredients and do not contain harmful chemicals and antibiotics.
Mervue products help to support sustainable farming globally. We are committed to reducing methane emissions in animals through improved gut health and are continuously researching and developing new products that will help the farming community to reduce its impact.
Our sister company, Inform Nutrition Ireland Ltd, is launching a €10,000 annual grant for sustainable farming in Ireland, to encourage farmers to develop innovations on the farm that support sustainability, animal well-being and lifetime productivity. Inform Nutrition is also working with Teagasc, the Irish agriculture and food development authority, on a project to further reduce methane emissions in animals.
Our Green Commitment
Mervue Laboratories is working to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions. We are members of Repak, who lead the recycling and sustainability of Ireland’s packaging waste, advocate for a new circular economy and educate businesses and consumers on reducing and recycling packaging waste.
We will continue to drive attention and awareness of the difference we can make working individually or collectively to meet our environmental sustainability goals and to enact positive change with our colleagues, suppliers and customers. To support pro-environmental behaviour and attitudes within our organisation, we offer in-house sustainability events and training opportunities.
Car Charging Stations
Mervue Laboratories has installed car charging stations at our facility to encourage staff to go green and allow for the introduction of electric and hybrid vehicles to our fleet. Both of our Directors have purchased Hybrid cars to lead the change.
Our sustainability task force will continue to develop sustainability goals for our organisation.
