Why Bowmar nutrition isn’t helping the NFL
- by admin
Bowmar Nutrition Inc. says it’s working with the NFL to try to fix its supply chain and that it will help the league keep the most players healthy.
The NFL declined to comment.
Bowmar said it will share its nutritional information with teams and will help players in ways such as “providing them with consistent and timely information and providing them with the resources they need to effectively play football.”
The NFL has been in a dispute with Bowmar over its supply chains, including over its sourcing of raw ingredients.
The league says its supply-chain partners can’t rely on Bowmar’s suppliers because they aren’t licensed to manufacture the products the league is using.
But the company has denied the allegations.
“We are committed to providing the NFL with the highest-quality nutrition in the industry, with no added sugar or artificial flavors, and have a very strong and long-standing relationship with the league,” the company said in a statement to The Hill.
The NFL says the league’s investigation is underway and that the investigation is ongoing.
A spokeswoman for the company told The Hill that the league has reached out to Bowmar to offer assistance.
“We want to be helpful, but we don’t want to do anything to jeopardize our relationship with our suppliers,” the spokeswoman said.
In addition to the NFL, the company also supplies the New England Patriots and the New York Jets, according to the company.
One of the NFL’s biggest suppliers is Kraft Foods, which owns the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Baltimore Ravens.
Kraft is not the biggest supplier of nutritional supplements in the NFL.
Kraft has been sued several times by other companies in the past, including the former CEO of the New Orleans Saints.
In 2015, Kraft settled a lawsuit brought by the NFL and former players.
As for Bowmar, the firm said in its statement that it “will cooperate fully with the investigation and we hope that this will help restore confidence in our product.”
Bowmarch Nutrition is the parent company of Bowmar Health, a nutritional supplement company based in Scottsdale, Arizona.
Bought by the Bowmar family for $13 billion in 2000, Bowmarch became one of the world’s largest nutritional supplement companies in 2016 when it bought the company of nutritional supplement makers Arby’s and Nutri-Grain, among others.
Its products have been sold in more than 150 countries and the company employs more than 100,000 people.
