Marriage’s Secure NOPS Quality Accreditation

Marriage’s has been working toward Naturally Occurring Prohibited Substances Accreditation (NOPS) at their Lincolnshire facility for the last six months, so are delighted to secure accreditation at their first audit this September.

The NOPS accreditation follows a risk assessment based approach and regular auditing of suppliers and staff. It looks at sourcing, storage, transport and the manufacturing process to reduce the risk of including any of the prohibited substances banned by the British Horseracing Authority.

Prohibited substances naturally occur in many raw materials including caffeine, theobromine from coco and morphine from poppies. By having the NOPS accreditation it means that supplier has a managed and controlled process to help prevent the risk of these substances getting in the supply chain.

NOPS accredited also gives Marriage’s the opportunity to display the NOPS logo on their products, communicating with customers that they have the accreditation.
