Dogs in New Zealand are about to get a taste of the North Okanagan.
True Leaf Pet, a Vernon-based company that manufactures hemp dog treats, has entered into an agreement with a Christchurch, New Zealand, company.
Starting in April, Liberty Premium Pet Products will distribute the chews to pet retail stores across the country.
“With no other comparable hemp-based therapeutic dog products already on the market in New Zealand, we’re enthusiastic about the release of True Hemp and eager to see the response of dog owners to True Hemp,” said Liberty’s managing partner Carl Rees.
True Hemp is already sold across North America, England and Germany.
True Leaf CEO Darcy Bomford said the company’s growth is a success story.
“It’s hard to believe we’re now on three continents in only our second year,” he said.
