Vondis is without a doubt the most ethical and moral pet nutrition in South Africa. We STRICTLY refrain from any animal testing to enhance our
brand (despite the demands made by the scientific vets). We do our best to
buy only natural ingredients and we use absolutely no preservatives or digestives. We use only organic herbs in our food and we ensure that the meat that we use comes from a reputable source. Most of the variants of meat
that we use are free range.
We produced the first ever vegan diet in South Africa and we did so because
we wished to service a sector of our population that finds it immoral to
have meat or dairy products in their home.
We use only high quality pulses like a long grain brown rice, pearl barley, split peas and all are GMO FREE. The rest of the industry is known to use brewers rice (left overs from the breweries), soya meal, corn meal, wheat and corn gluten (acquired from China)
The wheat germ, millet and rolled oats that we also use in the vegan diet, we purchase from The Health Connection, a reputable supplier.
We use only a cold pressed olive oil from South Africa as a high quality omega rather than rendered fats that the industry is known to use.
We wake up every morning and pick fresh herbs from our organic garden. We
don’t even pick the night before.
We cook our own stock from scratch, using bones and vegetables rather
than getting quick results from synthetic preserved digestives.
We certainly do not use any harmful preservatives rather; we have had to invest
heavily in a freezer room and freezers to ensure that the product is frozen
Then, our cooking process is scientific and prepared in 3 different stages. All our veggies, herbs and omegas are blended RAW. The meat is seared to make sure that there is NO danger of salmonella or bacterial overgrowth. The pulses are cooked slowly for three hours to maintain nutritional values. In fact, we are the first and only pet food kitchen in the world that aspires to eco-cooking. All our foods are cooked in “Wonderbags”.
We are not perfect but it can be assured you that there is not a single pet
nutrition in SA that bides by such principles. The reality is that the South
African consumer wants to feed a high quality nutrition at reasonable
prices. We are that company.
