A WELLINGTON business has won two awards for its eco-friendly, natural and healthy dog treats/accessories.

Goodchaps has won Pet Industry Federations New Business of the Year 2020 award, as well as PetQuip’s Gold Supplier of the Year 2020 and Silver Products of the Year (for four items).

Liam Goodwin, product developer and designer at Goodchaps, said: “We are still in shock at winning the awards, and to receive both New Business of The Year and Supplier of The Year are things we are very proud of - not to mention four of our unique products achieving silver awards for product of the year.

“When we started back in 2018, all we wanted to do was provide dog owners with eco friendly, healthy, natural products.

“We had no idea Goodchap’s would be received this well, but we are over the moon at the response we have had.”

The products awarded Silver Product of the Year 2020 are: the Christmas cracker, catfish twirls value pack, catfish twirls and the doggy bags.

Goodchaps focus on creating healthy, high quality treats and toys, but they ensure their environmental impact is as low as possible.

A spokesperson for the company said: “We ensure that all of our products are sourced sustainably; from our additive free fish treats, to our 100 per cent cotton hand-made rope toys - which are all packaged in 100 per cent plastic free and biodegradable materials.

“We also like to give back to our canine community, with every bag of Mr Fisher’s , Mrs Cook’s and Lil’ Scamps sold we donate treats to rescue centres.”

The Pet Industry Federation Awards celebrate success across a wide range of products, services, companies and individuals. The winners of their annual awards were announced on November 9.

The PetQuip Awards are an established annual event, but this year PetQuip have created a digital magazine to honour their winners instead.

Pat Flynn, PetQuip’s trade association manager, said: “We would like to congratulate not just our worthy winners but all our entrants who made it through to the finals – it’s not an easy task and our judges were rigorous in their assessment of all entries.”
