Ziwi Events – Global Pet Expo 2015

11

ZiwiPeak attended the Global Pet Expo in Orlando, Florida in February. The event attracted 1,051 exhibiting companies and over 6,000 visitors from all over the globe. Check out the summary from Kimberly Mitchell who was at the 3 day event…

“Global had a buzz about it this year and we were surrounded in the Natural Pathway with all our competitors that are widely seen in most independent pet retailers throughout the US. Always nice to see the familiar faces from overseas coming to see us yearly, like Vivienne Cheng, Director Pet Etc. Ltd from Hong Kong who distributes ZiwiPeak. Our focus this year was not only on our new Beef recipe but highlighting New Zealand Green Lipped Mussel.  We wanted to show the people what they look like, how they are grown & to continue to instil the benefits of using them in our foods. All in all, ZiwiPeak still delivers the most highly nutritious, healthiest pet food globally which ensures well-being for the animal & peace of mind for the pet parent”.

Leading Raw Food Store in Switzerland

Ralf at Hunde Oase

Nigel Woodd, one of ZiwiPeak’s Directors, recently visited the Hunde Oase raw pet food store in Switzerland.

The store was very well set out with a very large range of many frozen raw meat & organ pet foods that would position it as Switzerland’s leader in raw food.

ZiwiPeak has a wide range of dog & cat food available as well and is the stores leading air dried and canned raw food range.

Most impressive was the personal commitment Ralf Dietrich has made to educating customers about the reasons to choose raw food for their dogs and cats.

Ralf runs 2 education seminars every month in the store and presents detailed information about the nutritional and digestive requirements of the dog & cat.

He is extremely knowledgeable and passionate and has a very high success rate of getting customers to convert to raw foods once they understand about the carnivores nutritional requirements.

Nigel Woodd was very pleased to see that Ralf was setting such a strong benchmark and offering great education. The ZiwiPeak philosophy was well aligned and Ralf loves selling ZiwiPeak to his customers

If you are in Switzerland you can visit the store at Hofackerstrasse 3, 8422 Pfungen or visit their website www.hunde-oase.ch

KOPET – The 17th annual Korea Pet Show took place on November 28th – November 30th 2014

Nigel Woodd, one of our ZiwiPeak Directors, headed to Asia for the event to represent ZiwiPeak with our Korean partners. The show attracted approximately 40,000 visitors over the 3 days with 120 Exhibitors (300 booths). ZiwiPeak was a show favourite with the booth buzzing with activity over the 3 day period. This is no surprise with the current status of the Korean dog population estimated at approximately 4.6 million – and they sure love their ZiwiPeak!

We Rocked at the Zoo!

SuperZoo 2014 010

We rocked at the Zoo!   The ‘Green Cow’ was a hit and it grew wheat grass!   The new Ziwi Beef recipe was widely tasted by our four legged furry friends who found it hard leaving us.   Mark had hair problems, Richard didn’t worry, Polo’s looked sharp and all in all ZiwiPeak’s crew was very popular to hang out with, and what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas!!!

Rt Honourable Steven Joyce visits ZiwiPeak

StevenJoyceFB

ZiwiPeak was proud to host the Rt Honourable Steven Joyce, the Minister of Economic Development, who visited the ZiwiPeak factory on Friday 6th June 2014.

Key points of discussion encompassed the global development of the high value “natural” dog & cat food category, the unique opportunities for export of New Zealand’s meat based pet food ingredients and the ZiwiPeak brands global growth focussing on the very top quality end of the dog & cat pet food market. Following a tour of the air drying manufacturing process Mr Joyce remarked that the ZiwiPeak brand development was a real New Zealand success story that we should be very proud of. It fitted well with the New Zealand strategy to develop unique high value, high quality export opportunities that would position the country and company at the forefront of export opportunities.

Interzoo 2014 Summary

10406924_401744433301058_1334099866106864954_n-Improved

Interzoo 2014 was the 5th Interzoo event that ZiwiPeak has attended over the last 10 years. It was very obvious in 2014 that the strong trend in pet food towards more instinctive real meat wild prey diets is firmly embedded in all manufacturers and retailers strategies driven by the ongoing and strengthening consumer demand. When ZiwiPeak first attended Interzoo in 2006 our brand was considered radical and unusual and so many did not know what to make of this air dried real raw meat range of products. Today ZiwiPeak still remains at the leading edge globally for the uncompromising quality, unsurpassed New Zealand ingredients and the unique air drying process but it is no longer a mystery as to why we make what we do as now the market truly relates to and understands that this move to more natural real meat diets is here to stay. Retailers and consumers alike now clearly understand why ZiwiPeak was developed so many years ago to capture this trend. There is less explanation to explain the ZiwiPeak brand proposition. Everyone else is trying to emulate our strategy.

Interzoo 2014 reinforced that ZiwiPeak’s unswerving commitment to manufacturing completely natural carnivorous diets is definitely still on the correct track. The level of new market and new stockist enquiry was overwhelming. The introduction of our Grass Fed, Grain Free New Zealand Beef product range was very enthusiastically received and demand was high. It gives us great confidence to continue investing in the brand development and additional manufacturing capability for the future.
