(HALIFAX, NS) Sept 12, 2019: TDF Sports is fuelling athletes with plant-based supplements that are NSF Certified for Sport® and Universities are taking note. McMaster University & Dalhousie University Athletics & Recreation are the latest to partner with the brand, recognizing the importance of providing student-athletes with access to clean supplements.
Since last month when TDF Sports announced an official partnership with the University of Regina, it has received calls from several other schools across the country. Co-Founder and CEO, Dr. Darren Burke said, “We are very excited to be working with top-tier universities and athletes. It’s important for athletes–especially athletes early in their career–to know what they are putting in their bodies. NSF Certification for Sport® ensures that what is on the label, is exactly what’s in the bottle.”
NSF International’s Certified for Sport® program helps athletes, coaches and consumers make educated decisions when choosing sports supplements. MLB, NHL and CFL clubs are permitted to provide and recommend only products that are Certified for Sport®.
“We are very excited to work with a brand that is growing quickly and a product that will help our student-athletes pursue excellence,” said McMaster Director of Athletics & Recreation Shawn Burt. “It’s great that McMaster can join the impressive roster of TDF Sports partners, and that our varsity programs can enjoy the benefits of tremendous products.”
“We are excited to add TDF Sports to our list of supportive partners who share in our goal of making Dalhousie Athletics a leading program in Canada” said Tim Maloney, Executive Director of Athletics & Recreation at Dalhousie University. “Accessing safe and reliable products that meet NSF certification is critical to our student-athlete’s health and safety.”
Former NHL forward and current Co-Founder and CMO, TJ Galiardi shared his past experience with “clean labelled” products explaining, “It’s no secret that the supplement industry has a shady reputation; low level ingredients from overseas, cheap fillers, banned substances- we’re changing that through transparency and quality. There’s a reason TDF Sports has more professional athlete ambassadors and investors than any other brand ever!”
