Ely company’s accreditation helps keep Olympic athletes clean

A FAST-GROWING company that deals in sport and nutritional ingredients has accreditation to ensure that top athletes do not fall foul of the International Olympic Committee.

Cambridge Commodities – based at their new custom-built 36,000sq ft premises in Lancaster Way, Ely – holds the only prestigious Informed-Sport Site accreditation awarded to a UK multi-ingredients company.

Informed Sport is a testing programme designed to analyse supplements and their ingredients, for inadvertent contamination with substances prohibited by the World Anti Doping Agency and the International Olympic Committee.

Founded by Ely businessman James Stevens in 1998, the business specialises in the import, distribution and manufacture of nutritional ingredients.

The company employs 18 people and has plans for further expansion into the export market in Europe this year, with a new European sales manager being appointed.

Mr Stevens says the company provides nutritional ingredients “with an emphasis on quality, service and price”.

He said: “The success of Cambridge Commodities Ltd is down to a highly skilled and focused team, carefully chosen for their dedication to offering the best service, market knowledge, technical expertise, and products and systems innovation.”
