FenuHealth which produces powder form supplement for gastric ulcers in horses has been awarded the Innovation Arena’s People’s Choice Award in association with Enterprise Ireland, the National Ploughing Association and the Irish Farmers Journal.

The Meath based company, which was set up by sisters Kate (16) and Annie (14) Madden is one of 57 companies exhibiting at the Innovation Arena and entered into this year’s awards. In its first year, the People’s Choice Award is voted for by the general public via the Irish Farmers Journal website and app. The number of votes received totalled 14,008 with FenuHeath receiving 37% of the overall vote.

The winning company produces products, FenuSave and FenuCure which slows down the hydrochloric acid production, reduces gastric juices in the stomach and sticks to the stomach lining giving extra protection. The sisters first showcased their product at the Young Scientist Competition and were finalists and prize winners in the 2015 and 2016 event.

Denis Duggan, Senior Regional Development Advisor, Enterprise Ireland said: “This is the first year of the People’s Choice Awards and the level of interest in the awards from clients, exhibitors and the public in general has been phenomenal. Producing an innovative and unique product which greatly benefits equine health, FenuHealth are worthy winners for this year’s award. We wish the company all the best in their business endeavours and Enterprise Ireland looks forward to working with them in the future.”
