Our businesses

Maneli Pets

Maneli Pets

Pets are increasingly demonstrating intolerances to traditional protein and the pet food category is shifting away from conventional, mass-produced products to purer, more exotic and beneficial proteins for domestic animals. What better place to source these novel proteins than Africa?

Our Pets business currently processes and supplies specialist premium pet treats to one of America’s largest pet food wholesalers in the form of game and ostrich by-products such as bones, tendons, organs and meat.
