    What are the benefits of investing in an emerging brand vs. an established brand?

    With an emerging brand, you get to help set the stage. There are no preconceived ideas from the public, only curiosity. It’s an exciting time to be a part of the brand when you are able to present it to the public.

    Why did you call the brand Konala?

    Konala represents a combination of the names of Trace and Jammie’s two dogs – Kona and Nala. The Konala brand wants to change the world by offering quick and convenient healthier food options that will represent ‘taste’, ‘healthy’ and ‘fast’. As far as the dogs’ names, it just means we are as much a friendly brand as we are a healthy one! We happily offer a healthy chicken treat to dogs brought in by their owners on certain occasions, making it an extra special surprise!
