ZiwiPeak Steals the Show at Helsinki Pet Expo 2013

Pet Expo Finland Apr 2013

The recent Pet Expo held in Helsinki was a huge success showcasing ZiwiPeak to the 58,000 visitors who attended the 2 day show. The visitors were mostly families with children so there was an enormous interest in finding out about the correct nutrition to feed their dogs and cats.

Sari Vahakoski said “ we met many old ZiwiPeak friends who have been feeding ZiwiPeak to their animals but most importantly we also introduced ZiwiPeak to a lot of new families who will now understand the importance of natural foods”.

Tuomas Jarvinen the Sales Manager in Finland was inundated with enquiries and he said “it was great to talk to so many people about the health issues that can be avoided by feeding the right food. Quite a few pet owners don’t realise the many bad problems that can be caused by feeding ingredients that a carnivore like the dog & cat are unable to digest.”

ZiwiPeak had 2 display stands at the Pet Expo, 1 located in the Cat section and the second one in the dog section. Pictured is Tuomas talking to some customers.

Jessie – The Beautiful March Winner of the ZiwiPeak/Sunday News ‘My Pet’ Photo Competition!

Sunday News - 201303 March Wiinner - Jessie

Jessie was the winner of the March competition with this beautiful photo of her sitting in her favourite fig tree (which has sadly now gone due to a storm).

Jessie and her owner Rod received a box of ZiwiPeak goodies, and they wrote in to say thanks:

“Thanks for the big box of ZiwiPeak products that Jessie won in the Sunday News Pet Photo Competition. Jessie and her sparring partner (Quincy) are tucking into the prize with gusto. 

Jessie is a Papamoa cat. A few years ago we called at a garage sale and this strange coloured kitten was marching around one of the sales tables. I picked her up and jokingly said to my wife ‘do you want to buy this’. The lady whose sale it was said – “You can have her, she arrived here 3 weeks ago and I have checked the SPCA and advertised her in the Lost and Found column of the BOP Times to no avail, we already have 3 cats”. How could we resist. We named her Jessie after GS (Garage Sale). If you drive around the early part of Papamoa you will see many cats with a similar look to Jessie (her father, brothers and uncles must be very productive sires).”

ZiwiPeak Singapore – Fun Time at the Beach


ZiwiPeak’s Singapore Importer and Distribution partner showcased the ZiwiPeak range of products in a fun exhibition held recently at the Beach. “This was a relaxed and fun way of introducing the ZiwiPeak brand and the many benefits of a natural healthy food to the many Singaporeans who attended this fun day out at the beach” said Caven De Silva, owner of TAC Link Marketing. “We spoke to many dog & cat owners about the importance of natural nutrition that fits with the carnivorous diet that the dog and cat needs to thrive on and to remain happy & healthy. Many pet owners don’t understand that their dog & cat can’t digest the high levels of non-meat ingredients that are in almost all of the pet food brands marketed in Singapore” said Caven. “ZiwiPeak stands out from all the others as it is totally natural and by feeding such good quality those that have converted have seen their vet care costs plummet and the condition of their pet improve significantly”. Caven also said that educating the pet parents about the right diet is the key to good health and it is not the cost of the pack that is important but the cost to feed each day. He is very positive about the future outlook in Singapore.

Dr Ian Dunbar Seminars a great success

image (2)

Over the last 3 weeks Dr Ian Dunbar has held a series of Dog Training and Behavioural seminars in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and Auckland. ZiwiPeak was the major sponsor at all events in both Australia and New Zealand. Attendees from all dog professions were at each seminar to learn from the world’s most experienced dog trainer and behaviourist. Vet’s, vet nurses, dog trainers, behaviourists, government agencies and others went away astounded by Ian’s enormous depth of knowledge and his training tips on how to get the dogs doing what you want without leashes and other usual paraphernalia. Ian’s view on the food and treats to use as rewards was a simple but clear message “If you don’t use the best food and treats how can you expect to get the dog settled and working well for the rewards? ZiwiPeak is the only brand to use as it is the best training treat and food. It is the perfect size and the quality is unquestionable.” Nigel Woodd, one of ZiwiPeak’s Directors attended the Auckland seminar and had this to say “I never considered how important the appeal of the ZiwiPeak product was in the training environment and the huge impact that the treat has on getting the dog to behave for the vet or trainer. Now I have seen it in practice I know that the ZiwiPeak brand is on the right course for the future. Ian’s knowledge is like a bottomless well and he is a pleasure to support and be involved with.” Following is a selection of photos from Auckland and from Ian’s visit to Mt Maunganui.
