About GHS

GHS Direct specialises in the manufacture and supply of a comprehensive range of concentrate liquid disinfectants and detergents to both the animal care and leisure industry market sectors throughout Great Britain, Northern Ireland and Eire. Originally formed in 1985, the company has steadily grown and now occupies a highly trusted and reliable position within the detergent manufacturing industry; offering a range of quality, tested and approved products.

Initially, GHS Direct concentrated its efforts on the leisure industry supplying to pubs, clubs, hotels, restaurants and other outlets such as nursing and care homes. Gradually, with a diverse customer database, GHS Direct turned to the animal care industry and has since gone on to produce a range of anti-bacterial and anti-viral disinfectants along with surface sanitises specific to the animal care sectors; including kennels, catteries, veterinary practices and dog groomers.

GHS Direct’s customer database continues to expand and the company prides itself on its ability to supply quality products to outlets of differing sizes; whether a local pub or small veterinary practice to a group owned chain of restaurants or boarding kennels. As a company committed to promoting the hygiene and welfare of all animals, its products are formulated to prevent disease and sickness, control infection and stop cross-contamination. Most products are supplied in a concentrate form allowing for dilution according to requirements, passing on valuable savings to customers.

All the company’s products conform to strict COSHH regulations and where necessary, individually tested to verify efficacy as stated. Its liquid products are made to the highest standard and most are bio-degradable. Many of the ingredients used carry a suppliers’ guarantee of the non-use of animal testing.

The Leaping Bunny is the globally recognisable gold standard for cruelty free consumer products. The trademark license is owned by Cruelty Free International, the leading organisation working to end animal experiments worldwide.

The Leaping Bunny programme is operated in the UK and the rest of the world by Cruelty Free International, by partners in Europe, and by The Coalition for Consumer Information in Cosmetics in the USA & Canada.

Leaping Bunny approval demonstrates that a company has met and continues to meet the programme’s criteria in full.

GHS Direct became officially ‘Leaping Bunny Approved’ in August 2015. We are proud to be a cruelty free company and we will continue to meet and adhere to strict compliance requirements.

All of our own household, cosmetic and animal grooming products are approved under the Cruelty Free International Leaping Bunny programme, the best assurance a consumer can get that a brand is doing everything it can to be cruelty free.

It is the only cruelty free license that requires a supplier monitoring system to be implemented by the brand, supply chain checking for animal testing right down to ingredient manufacturer level, adherence to a fixed cut-off date policy and acceptance of ongoing independent audits to ensure compliance.
