GOED, NASC Launch Strategic Partnership

The Global Organization for EPA and DHA Omega-3s (GOED) and the National Animal Supplement Council (NASC) have announced a new strategic partnership. This partnership brings together two quality-focused organizations and will allow both memberships to benefit from the sharing of industry intelligence, cross-promotional opportunities and educational opportunities.

NASC is a well-established nonprofit trade organization dedicated to promoting the wellbeing of companion animals being given animal health supplements by their owners, and to protecting and enhancing the animal health supplement industry. Their members include supplement manufacturers, raw material suppliers, distributors, veterinarians, retailers, pet professionals and animal friends. 

GOED Managing Director Ellen Schutt commented on the partnership. “GOED is thrilled to partner with NASC. Many GOED members have a strong interest in the pet food and pet supplement sector and working with a group as well established and knowledgeable as NASC will help both of our organizations to support our memberships and grow this important category.”

NASC president Bill Bookout added, “This partnership makes so much sense to us. Quality is important to both of our organizations and being able to work together for the benefit of both of our memberships is a no-brainer. We are excited about the opportunity to work more closely with GOED to the benefit of our industries.”
