An award-winning Galway health and nutrition company is set for major growth this year after it announced the first phase of a major UK expansion more than double its production capacity in 2016.

Revive Active – the company established by Daithi O’Connor and Liam Salmon and based at Liosban Industrial Estate in Galway city – will also grow the company’s turnover to €6 million for 2016.

This follows on from an agreement with Lloyd’s Pharmacy in the UK to roll out Revive Active’s portfolio of portfolio of scientifically developed supplements across Lloyd’s pharmacy retail network. This deal will build on Revive Active’s presence in leading UK health food stores.

A recent winner of the 2015 National Eir Elevation awards for Fast Moving Consumer Goods, Revive Active is a fast-growing Irish Health Supplement business that is highly regarded for its science-based nutritional supplements that set new standards for their integrity and outstanding formulations.

Using proprietary, scientifically-sound formulations, Revive Active’s targeted health and nutritional supplements use only the highest quality-grade of active ingredients to ensure maximum bio-availability.

The company is working round the clock to keep up with demand for its products including flagship Revive Active and Joint Care Complex which are now available in more than 800 pharmacy and health food outlets in Ireland.

The company also sells its nutrition supplements online to customers in US, Canada, Australia and Europe.

“With an important new product launch for cognitive health planned for February 2016, the UK represents a key market for Revive Active and having a strong UK retail partner such as Lloyds from the get-go is paramount to our growth strategy in the UK,” said Daithi O’Connor.

“Lloyds Pharmacy is a leading UK pharmacy chain with a high patient self-care focus and a total of 1,600 strategically sited pharmacies across Great Britain and Ireland.

“The launch of Revive Active’s products range through Lloyds UK pharmacy network will ensure we are on track to more than double the number of retail accounts in the UK and reach more consumers and strengthen our brand presence too.

“We are really looking forward to working in partnership with Lloyds to ensure that REVIVE ACTIVE reaches its full potential in the market,” he added.

Galway cleans up on electrical waste

Published

Leo Donovan, CEO of WEEE Ireland.

An impressive 2,900 tonnes of electrical waste were collected in Galway in 2021 by the country’s largest recycling scheme – an annual increase of 0.7% for the county in a year which saw a national peak in electrical recycling.

On average, 11.24kg of e-waste was recycled per person in the county last year according to WEEE Ireland – greater than the county’s 2020 collection rate of 11.17kg and the 2021 national average of 10.9kg per person.

“People in Galway have contributed greatly to e-waste recycling every year, and we want to encourage that trend,” said WEEE Ireland CEO Leo Donovan.

“One of the key habits consumers are encouraged to embrace is to stop hoarding end-of-life electronic goods – estimated at 4kg to 5kg of e-waste per person.

“So many of these appliances and devices can be repaired, re-used or re-gifted, but if they cannot, make sure you recycle them for free.

“Our consumption is only going in one direction. In 2021, an average of twelve household electrical products were sold for every person in Ireland.

Mobility grants can’t keep pace

Published

on

Denis Naughten...’almost impossible’ to keep up.

The rates for grants to make mobility adaptations that allow people to live independently in their own homes are not keeping pace with the rising cost of construction.

Roscommon Galway TD, Denis Naughten said it was ‘almost impossible’ for older people or people with disabilities to get contractors to quote prices for work.

That’s because of the bureaucracy involved in housing aid for older people scheme, the mobility grant aid scheme, and the housing adaptation grant for people with disability.

“The low rate of the grant also means many contractors are not interested in this work anymore,” the Independent TD said.

“The reality is that the grants rates have not increased in recent years. These rates today do not reflect current building costs. The income thresholds also need to be modernised and updated,” he added.

Deputy Naughten highlighted the plight of a constituent in East Galway to drive home his point.

This person, an amputee who resides in a two-storey house and whose sole income is social welfare, had applied for a housing adaptation grant.

Galway County Council awarded the maximum rate for the housing adaptation grant, which was €30,000.
