K9 Pet Food

The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviews K9 Pet Food MD and part-owner (70%) Fazielah Allie.

Woolworths – along with the Department of Trade & Industry and the Industrial Development Corporation - has just opened a new 3600m2 pet food factory in the Western Cape.

The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviewed K9 Pet Food Managing Director and part-owner (70%) Fazielah Allie.

Allie - who has been in the pet food industry for 20 years - bought the struggling business in 2014.

She approached Woolworths to secure a partnership.

The rest, as they say, is history.

Listen to the interview in the audio below (and/or scroll down for quotes from it).

It’s been quite a journey!

It’s scary, but I don’t regret it.

My previous employment gave me access to Woolworths.
