Lintbells wins Queen's Award for innovation 2016
For Lintbellls, receiving The Queens Award for Enterprise in the Innovation category has been the culmination of many years of ‘inspiration and perspiration’. The company, which was established in 2006, is known for its commitment to improve the lives of dogs, cats and horses. Its health enhancing supplements are given to over 150,000 dogs in the UK alone, including this year’s Crufts Best in Show.
The award has primarily been given for the company’s work on YuMOVE, which is the UK number one veterinary joint supplement. Lintbells’ subsequent brand YuMEGA Itchy Dog, which supports skin health, is now rated the UK’s number one veterinary skin supplement. * Cofounder John Davies’ dog Charlie was one of the first to benefit and since then Lintbells health enhancing supplements have been given to over 150,000 dogs in the UK alone, with dogs, cats and horses in another 15 countries also experiencing the benefits.
Rigorous scientific principles and detailed protocols are used in the development of Lintbells products. The company works with experts like the Royal Veterinary College and various research organisations to develop and validate its supplements. Ethical sourcing of high quality ingredients has also been responsible for much of its success.
These days, YuMOVE includes an exclusive trademarked source of green lipped mussel called Vitaease™, which has been developed by the company and offers a highly concentrated source of omega-3. Enjoying a host of five star reviews, Lintbells is clearly popular with pet owners who are reassured by its ‘visible difference’ guarantee, as well as retailers and veterinary practices who recommend and stock its supplement range.
Founders John Davies and John Howie have steered Lintbells to success while staying true to their original vision: to help keep pets healthy and happy by providing effective, high quality, pet supplements. Commercial success and national recognition for innovation are great achievements within a decade and there’s hopefully much more to come from this fast growing company.
