Johannesburg, 3 May 2018 - Premium South African pet food manufacturer, Montego Pet Nutrition (Montego), has announced that SA dog food brand WUMA! will soon become part of the Montego family of pet nutrition products. The acquisition empowers Montego to be the official WUMA! brand owner, sole manufacturer and distributor as of 1 June 2018.
Established in 2005, WUMA! has become a household name among dog owners in the market for high quality, affordable pet food – something Montego feels passionately about providing. Made for dogs of all breeds and sizes, WUMA! offers a wide selection of puppy and dog food made from quality ingredients that are free from any colourants or artificial flavourants.
“Montego believes in delivering products that are consistently high in quality, and the acquisition of WUMA! not only speaks to this commitment, but also to our vision of becoming South Africa’s go-to pet food brand with a reputation for quality and reliability,” says Wilfred Cawood, Marketing Manager at Montego.
Montego also assures loyal WUMA! customers that all products will remain exactly the same in terms of ingredients and recipe. WUMA! products will now be produced at and distributed from Montego’s state-of-the-art factory in Graaff-Reinet in the Eastern Cape and made more widely available for customers due to Montego’s larger reach and distribution channels.
“There was no hesitation when it came to the acquisition. WUMA! aligns well with Montego’s high standards of quality and adds value to our existing offerings, which means more value for our customers,” says Cawood.
Being a member of the Pet Food Industry Association (PFI) and FSSC 22000 certified, Montego products pass stringent quality standards, assuring pets and pet owners alike that not only are they feeding their pets a high-quality product, but a safe product too.
