The Kilkenny-headquartered company is now ranked as the biggest global player in the market.
In a trading update, the group said revenue was up 9 per cent over the first nine months of the year.
This was driven by a strong performance in sports nutrition division, the company said.
Managing director Siobhan Talbot said the outlook for the remainder of 2015 was positive.
She also reiterated the company’s full-year guidance of adjusted earnings per share growth of 9- 11 per cent on a constant currency basis – if exchange rates remain at current levels for the rest of the year.
